The Rolling Stones played to an audience that included Jack Nicholson in Los Angeles.
The Rolling Stones played their seminal record Sticky Fingers in its entirety at a surprise concert in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (May 20). The band, who also performed additional Stones hits, were celebrating the June 9th reissue of the classic 1971 album with a show at the Fonda Theatre.

The audience were treated to the likes of 'Brown Sugar,' 'Wild Horses,' 'Bitch,' 'Sister Morphine' and 'Dead Flowers' as the Stones prepared for their 15-city North American ZIP CODE Tour which begins in San Diego on Sunday, May 24.
"So this is our first show of our tour," an animated Mick Jagger told the crowd. "Tonight we're doing something we've never done before... We're going to do the whole of Sticky Fingers"
"I should have warned you before, but there may be a lot of '60s drug references on this record that may puzzle some people. It was a great, groovy scene," he said later, before crashing into 'Sister Morphine'.
