Sticky Fingers:
Live At The Fonda Theatre 2015

The Rolling Stones

Given their 55 year career, you can only imagine the Rolling Stones’ vaults are overflowing with magical goodness. Most of the concerts released on video that comprise the From The Vault are from the distant past, but Sticky Fingers: Live At The Fonda Theatre 2015 is a more recent show. When you consider the small venue in the heart of Hollywood and the set the Stones played, its significance cannot be underestimated. As the opening show on the Zip Code tour, the intimate Fonda Theatre gave the Stones the opportunity to limber up and play a no-frills show for a small audience — something they’ve traditionally done in the past.

Instead of promoting a new album on this tour, the band celebrated the reissue of Sticky Fingers, so for the first and only time they played the entire album live at the Fonda, giving fans a chance to see rare performances of songs like “You Gotta Move,” “Sister Morphine” and “Moonlight Mile,” on which Mick Jagger competently plays the opening chords. Sure, it would have been even more special to have Mick Taylor up for “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking,” though no one can say the version at the Fonda failed to match expectations.

Random commentary from band members and associates are sprinkled in before key songs, including insights to the Sticky Fingers cover, memories of recording the album and other trivial matters that appeal to fact finders. The set is book-ended by “Start Me Up” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash — two songs not on Sticky Fingers yet guaranteed crowd pleasers each and every time. Though the real meat of the set is Sticky Fingers, the DVD and Blu-ray are enhanced by three bonus tracks — “All Down the Line,” “When The Whip Comes Down” and “I Can’t Turn You Loose.” Stacked up against other From The Vault titles, perhaps what makes Sticky Fingers: Live At The Fonda Theatre 2015 stand out the most is that the Rolling Stones are still a pretty damn good rock and roll band.
