The Rolling Stones made some significant variations in their setlist from Night 1 at MetLife Stadium (May 23) to their second show, May 26. They played “Tell Me Straight,” the Keith Richards-sung song from their 2023 album Hackney Diamonds, for the first time ever, as well as three songs for the first time on their current Hackney Diamonds Tour: “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker),” “Bitch” and “Midnight Rambler.” You can watch videos of all four below, as well as a video of the entire show.

Also added on Night 2: “Whole Wide World,” from Hackney Diamonds. Plus Mick Jagger tried to start another food controversy by teasing the Jersey crowd by saying, “I heard that Connecticut says they have the best pizza in the United States,” while introducing his bandmates, after “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”
