Rolling Stones May Play Entire 'Sticky Fingers' Album On Tour

(Gibson) Fast on the heels of news that the Rolling Stones are touring this summer comes word that the band is considering performing their classic 1971 album, Sticky Fingers, in its entirety.

"We're floating the idea of playing the whole album," frontman Mick Jagger tells Rolling Stone. "At the very least, we'll play the songs we don't normally play."

A deluxe version of the album hits stores on May 26, which will no doubt figure into the decision. One concern of Jagger's is that the disc contains a preponderance of slow-tempo songs-"Normally we just [perform] one or two ballads," he says-but the band plans to explore the idea in rehearsals nonetheless.

"I'm sure we'll have a go at it," he says. "We play a lot of the tunes and know them pretty well. I think we've played them all at least once. It's not like trying to do [the 1967 psych-rock album] Their Satanic Majesties Request." Read the Gibson report here.
