Rolling Stones: Why London Didn’t Get ‘Satisfaction’

It’s very rare that The Rolling Stones don’t perform their first number-one song in concert, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” but that was the case Sunday night in London during the first of five shows this year celebrating their 50th anniversary. It’s not because they didn’t want to, after all, it was on the initial set list. But they ran out of time due to strict local curfew laws prohibiting the playing of live music past 11 p.m. at London’s O2 Arena. Let’s see if they cut another song to squeeze it in at Thursday’s O2 show.

As for putting together the set list for these run of shows, the band’s musical director and keyboardist Chuck Leavell says, “We have tried to look very hard at all of the various eras of the band’s career and tried as best as possible to represent those eras. 50 years is a long time.” As for changing the set for each of these shows, he adds, “The bottom line is that, only having a limited number of shows, obviously we’re not gonna go crazy with swapping around songs… In other words, we don’t want to go too too deep at this juncture.”
