Rolling Stones Return to China, Setlist Censored by Chinese Government
The Rolling Stones recently played their first show in China in seven years. And, asĀ NME notes, the performance was subject to censorship by the Chinese Ministry of Culture.

Similar restrictions were placed on the band when they played their debut show in the country in 2006. This time around, the Chinese Ministry of Culture told Mick, Keith et al. That two of their signature songs, "Brown Sugar" and "Honky Tonk Woman" were off limits.

The full set list for the band's March 12th performance at the Shanghai Mercedes-Benz Arena was as follows:

01. Jumpin' Jack Flash
02. Get Off My Cloud
03. It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)
04. Tumbling Dice
05. Dead Flowers
06. Ruby Tuesday
07. Street Fighting Man
08. Doom and Gloom
09. Miss You
10. Slipping Away
11. Happy
12. Midnight Rambler
13. All Down the Line
14. Paint It Black
15. Gimme Shelter
16. Start Me Up
17. Sympathy for the Devil
18. You Can't Always Get What You Want
19. (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
