Rolling Stones perform She's a Rainbow for first time since 1998
Fans voted for the Stones to play “She’s a Rainbow” in a poll on their official website asking if that night’s audience would rather hear that, “She’s So Cold,” “Like a Rolling Stone,” or “Anybody Seen My Baby.”Watch a fan-shot video of them performing the winner below.
Though they hadn’t played the song in concert since 1998, Arcade Fire performed the track on Saturday Night Live‘s 2012 season finale during Kristen Wiig’s last dance as a cast member. Mick Jagger hosted the episode and at the time SNL‘s Colin Jost told EW, “Once I heard that Mick was going to host – even before it was announced or anything – it was a song that I really wanted to use in something.”
The Rolling Stones kicked off their South American tour Wednesday night and will continue Sunday in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Last year, Keith Richards confirmed that the Rolling Stones would record a new collection after the tour when he told iHeartRadio, “Tthere are now definite plans to record.”
While promoting his solo album Crosseyed Heart last year, Richards also told EW, “I’m trying to get the Stones into the studio. But I don’t quite honestly see it happen this year. After we do South America in February and March, I’d love to get in the studio in April. But I know what those guys are like. When they finish a tour, they don’t want to do nothing! [Laughs]”
