The Rolling Stones rock 1969 classic on One World Together At Home

The Rolling Stones delivered an acoustic, in-home performance of their 1969 classic, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, as part of the “One World Together At Home” coronavirus concert special.

Streamed live by hennemusic and curated by Lady Gaga in collaboration with Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO), the April 18 event highlighted the efforts of the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, and stories from the world’s health care heroes alongside messages of gratitude and appreciation from those who they’ve treated.

A US broadcast on all the major networks was hosted by the late night trio of Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon; the show featured intimate performances by Eddie Vedder, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Keith Urban and more.

“We are honored to be invited to be part of the One World: Together at Home broadcast — from our homes in isolation,” said The Rolling Stones. “A fantastic event with Global Citizen in the fight against COVID -19.”

The Rolling Stones recently postponed their No Filter North American tour amid the coronavirus pandemic; the 15-date series was scheduled to open May 8 in San Diego, CA and run to July 9 in Atlanta, GA.

“We’re hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour,” says the band. "We are sorry to all the fans who were looking forward to it as much as we were, but the health and safety of everyone has to take priority."
