The Rolling Stones special guest for the City of Fountains aka Cow Town or Kansas City show on Saturday night was Ed Sheeran.
Ed Sheeran opened for The Stones and then returned to perform ‘Beast of Burden’ in their set. “Ed Sheeran! That was great! I loved that one,” Mick Jagger said at the end of the song. “Ed wanted to do Trap Queen but we didn’t rehearse it”.
The Stones then played a song that they had not played live since 1963, ‘Kansas City’, the Little Willie Littlefield cover from 1952. “This next song used to be the opening number of all our blues sets back in 1963, I mean that for real. We haven’t played it in a long time,” Jagger said diving into the blues classic.
