Rolling Stones Perform Track Not Played Live for 41 Years at Tokyo Show

Rolling Stones played a track they haven't performed since 1973 at a show in Tokyo on Tuesday (March 4), Gigwise reports. Watch the band performing "Silver Train" below.

Mick Jagger and co wheeled out "Silver Train," originally released as a B-side to their iconic track "Angie," after fans voted for the band to play the track. A recent fixture in the Stones' concerts invites local fans to nominate a track they'd like to hear the band play via social media.

"Silver Train" appeared on the Rolling Stones' album "Goats Head Soup," released in 1973. Original guitarist Mick Taylor made an appearance at the Tokyo Dome show to perform on "Silver Train."

The Stones also played 1994's 'You Got Me Rocking', as it was a close runner-up in the fans' vote.

The band were performing in Tokyo on the Asia Pacific leg of their 14 on Fire tour, which is set to continue in Macau then several destinations in Australia and New Zealand.
