Rolling Stones kick off European tour in Oslo

The Rolling Stones kicked off their 14 On Fire European tour in Oslo, Norway on Monday, and video from the show is available.

The date at the Telenor Arena is the group’s first live show since the passing of Mick Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, L’Wren Scott; the band postponed seven shows in Australia and New Zealand following the news - the dates were recently rescheduled for October and November of this year.

The band’s 20-song set opened with “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, included a pair of Keith Richards vocals in the middle (“You Got The Silver”, “Can’t Be Seen”), featured the Edward Grieg Youth Choir on “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, and wrapped up with “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

The Rolling Stones now move on to play the Rock In Rio Festival in Lisbon, Portugal on Thursday.
