14-20. Parade of hits: “Jumpin' Jack Flash,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Street Fighting Man,” “Rocks Off,” “Paint it Black,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” “You Can't Always Get What You Want” (with choir).


21. “Rip This Joint”: Can Richards play this hard and fast anymore? Would love to see him make the attempt.

22. “When the Whip Comes Down”: Savage guitars from 1978; the Stones out-punk the punks.

23. “Torn and Frayed”: A country lament that would make a great final encore. Picture it: Jagger, Richards and Wood on bar stools with acoustic guitars, Watts on brushes. “Just as long as the guitar plays, let it steal your heart away.”
