Rolling Stones Return To China With Government Approved Setlist
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.13.2014

NME reports that the Rolling Stones returned to China for their first show since 2006 (when they debuted in the country) at the Shanghai Mercedes-Benz Arena. They changed their set list due to government censorship. They were originally set to play the country in 2003 but couldn't because of the SARS epidemic. When they performed in 2006, the songs 'Brown Sugar', 'Honky Tonk Women' and 'Let's Spend The Night Together' were banned by the Chinese Ministry Of Culture.

Last night the last two songs were off the setlist and Mick Jagger said "Honky Tonk Women" was "vetoed" by the authorities. He said they had to give their lyrics to the Chinese government for authorization, as all foreign bands have to do.

Earlier in the tour, they played Macau, a special Administrative Region of China that doesn't have the same rules.

The 1971 song "Dead Flowers" was performed in Shanghai, which hasn't been played on their tour so far. "Street Fighting Man" was selected by fans on social media. Ronnie Wood wore a red shirt with a horse on it to reference the Chinese Year of the Horse while Jagger greeted the crowd in Mandarin. Former member Mick Taylor is currently on tour with the band and was in Shanghai for songs like 'Slipping Away' and 'Midnight Rambler'. The tour will head to Singapore on Saturday.

Here is the set list:

Jumpin' Jack Flash
Get Off My Cloud
'It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)'
'Tumbling Dice'
'Dead Flowers'
'Ruby Tuesday'
'Street Fighting Man'
'Doom And Gloom'
'Miss You'
'Slipping Away'
'Midnight Rambler'
'All Down The Line'
'Paint It Black'
'Gimme Shelter'
'Start Me Up'
'Sympathy For The Devil'
'You Can't Always Get What You Want'
'(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction'
