The Rolling Stones debut 1966 classic at 60th anniversary tour opener

The Rolling Stones delivered the debut performance of their 1966 classic, “Out Of Time”, at the 60th anniversary tour opener in Madrid, Spain on June 1.

As Rolling Stone notes, the appearance of the song – from the band’s 1966 album, “Aftermath” – “stunned fans” early in the set at the city’s Metropolitano Stadium, which opened with “Street Fighting Man” and was otherwise similar to the concerts they played throughout the States last year.

The Madrid show also marked the Stones’ first European appearance since the death of Charlie Watts, who passed away last August at the age of 80.

“Muchas gracias Madrid for an amazing opening show!,” said the band on social media. “Hope you enjoyed Out Of Time - that’s the first time the Stones have ever played it live.”

The tour continues June 5 in Munich, Germany and winds its way across Europe before wrapping up July 31 in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Rolling Stones will release an expanded and remastered reissue of their 2003 concert film, "Licked Live In NYC", on June 10.
