September 24 [7:55 EDT] -- The Rolling Stones kicked off their Bridges To Babylon tour Tuesday night at Chicago's Soldier Field, and according to guitarist Ron Wood, fans can expect to hear some rare Stones gems this time out.
"'The Last Time'... That sounds real good. And 'Sister Morphine' in some places which has never been played live," Wood told MTV News. "'19th Nervous Breakdown' hasn't been done for a long time. It sounds good, [1MB QuickTime] and the 'Little Red Rooster,' 'Little Queenie.' There's some real good... flashbacks."
It s worth noting that the classics that Woods refers to were all recorded by the Stones before Wood joined the band in 1976.
Wood noted that with an enormous catalog of Stones nuggets to choose from, the band wound up rehearsing more than 60 songs before settling on the set list. We'll have a complete report from the first date of the Stones' U.S. tour Thursday morning.
