The Rolling Stones Perform ‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg’ For The First Time Since 2007

The Rolling Stones have treated Detroit to an old classic, their cover of The Temptations’ ‘Ain’t To Proud To Beg’.

The last time the song was played by The Stones was 26 August 2007 in London on the ‘A Bigger Bang’ tour.

‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg’ was written by Norman Whitfield and Edward Holland Jr for The Temptations in 1966.

The Rolling Stones covered the song for their 1974 album ‘Its Only Rock and Roll’. The Stones recorded three covers for the album. ‘Shame Shame Shame’ and ‘Drift Away’ didn’t make the final cut and stayed official unreleased until this year, 2021, for the expanded ‘Tattoo You’ album.

The Stones version of ‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg’ reached no 17 on Billboard’s Top 40 chart in the USA.
