The Stones’ Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards during “Street Fighting Man,” London Stadium, May 22, 2018

The Rolling Stones’ 2018 #NoFilter tour will see the band playing 14 concerts in a generous six weeks – you do the math. After the tour begin on May 17 in Dublin, the second date wasn’t until Tuesday night’s (May 22) “hometown” show at London Stadium. (They remained in the city for the tour’s third date on Friday, May 25, at the same venue.)

From the start of Tuesday’s concert, the band switched things up, starting the performance with “Street Fighting Man” (which wasn’t played in Dublin). Other additions to the 19-song set were “Under My Thumb,” “Fool to Cry” and “Slipping Away.” (Gone were “Just Your Fool,” “Neighbours,” “Wild Horses” and “The Worst.”) (See the setlist below.)

For Friday night’s show on May 25, the Stones again made adjustments to their set adding “Let’s Spend the Night Together,” “Dead Flowers” and “Happy,” among others. (See several clips from that performance below.)

“Ladies and gentlemen… welcome home… the Rolling Stones!”

Manchester native Liam Gallagher opened the May 22 concert and dedicated Oasis’ “Live Forever” to the city of Manchester as the final song of his eight-song set. “This is for everyone in Manchester,” he said. “Sing along if you know the words.”

Earlier in the day, the Stones also acknowledged the one-year anniversary of the Manchester bombing.
