The Rolling Stones Perform Mixed Emotions For First Time Since 1990

The Rolling Stones performed a private show in Las Vegas on Monday with a special addition to the setlist…’Mixed Emotions’ for the first time in 26 years.

The show at the Bellagio Hotel was a warm-up show for the upcoming Desert Trip show in India, California this weekend.

‘Mixed Emotions’ was the first song back after the unofficial break-up of the Stones in the 80s. Keith Richards and Mick Jagger had hit a wall after the ‘Dirty Work’ album and the band fizzled to a grinding halt for a number of years with Mick and Keith exchanged barbs at each other like a couple of Gallagher brothers.

When they returned with Steel Wheels, they launched with ‘Mixed Emotions’ which many interpret as the final slap down for Jagger by Richards. While the song is titled ‘Mixed Emotions’ many read it as “Mick’s Emotions’ (You’re not the only one with Mick’s emotions). It was a clever line Keith got away with all the way to the album.

Despite being a hit song, Jagger stopped performing it until he found out … until now. Maybe he finally gets the joke.
