Rolling Stones London 50th Annivesary Gig Was Cut Short Due To Strict Curfews

The Rolling Stones were not able to play the full three-song encore set during their 50th anniversary gig at London's O2 Arena, due to strict local curfew laws prohibiting the playing of live music past 11PM.

As a result, the band was forced to cut the classic tune "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" from their setlist.

The London gig was the first of five shows the rockers have scheduled to celebrate a half century of making music. Former bass player Bill Wyman and guitarist Mick Taylor were even on hand to join their old pals on stage.

"It's amazing that we're still doing this, and it's amazing that you're still buying our records and coming to our shows," said Mick Jagger at one point during the evening. "Thank you, thank you, thank you."
