The Rolling Stones performed the sixth stop on their America Latina Ole Tour on Feb. 20 in Rio De Janeiro at Maracana Stadium. The Stones rocked fans with a a hit-filled 19-song setlist, that included a rare live cover of Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone.”
According to an article posted on Feb. 21 at Jam Base, the legendary British rockers introduced the live rarity as the fifth song of the night. “Like a Rolling Stone” was chosen by request as Rio’s favorite Stones’ song, elbowing out “All Down the Line,” “Shattered” and “Live with Me” for top spot in an online poll held prior to the concert.
The Stones originally performed the classic Dylan on their 1995 live album Stripped, which was released as a single. According to statistics at Setlist.fm, the “Satisfaction” hitmakers have only performed the song four times live since 2004.
The 5:25 minute clip opens with longtime Stones backing keyboardist Chuck Leavell performing the instantly familiar opening notes on organ as the crowed roars its approval. Fans can out the clip above.
The Rolling Stones’ America Latina Ole Tour will continue with the first of a two-night stand on Feb. 24 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo. The tour will conclude with a two-night stand on March 14 and March 17 in Mexico City at Foro Sol.
