The Rolling Stones played their first of three shows in Tokyo at the Tokyo Dome as part of their ongoing world tour on 2/26. Since it's right around the corner, we decided to stop by (the day after we saw Nine Inch Nails), and here's what we saw. Pictures (including one of the setlist) from the show are in this post. They continue, with video and the setlist from the 3/4 show, which saw them playing "Silver Train" (with Mick Taylor) for the first time in 40 years, below...

Gotta love that they're still representing the SARS masks.

I thought they were representing the AARP.

wow, Rolling Stones are old jokes. How original, how funny, how clever.

Maybe one of the greatest bands ever but 20 songs is beyond weak especially since Mick takes a 3 song break in the middle!

Can someone please explain why Orientals always flash the peace sign?! ENGRISH!

Cocksucker Blues.

Technically it was Brian Jones.

In the current lineup, using horror movie rules, it would be the black guy.

Yeah, with a catalog as deep as theirs and prices as steep as they are, 20 songs kinda sucks. Still weird they're parading out Mick Taylor for 1-2 songs a night instead of just letting him rejoin full time. He had a much bigger impact on their classic albums than Ronnie Wood.

Nice photos! Great job!

it is stupid that Mick Taylor just sits backstage while Ron Wood tries to play the solos he wrote on songs he originally played on.

Half the set is Taylor-era tracks
