The Rolling Stones played a surprise performance on Saturday night in a small Los Angeles club.


The legendary rock band performed a 90-minute set at a joint called Echoplex, a week before their “50 and Counting” anniversary tour hits the much larger Staples Center on May 3.

The band played a number of old and new songs, as well as some covers.

After performing “Respectable,” Mick Jagger joked to the audience of 700, including Bruce Willis and Gwen Stefani, “I’m glad you’re here to welcome an up-and-coming band.”

Cameras and phones were not allowed at the concert, which sold tickets for just $20 earlier in the day.

At the end of the show, Jagger said, “It’s the first show of the tour, probably the best one.”
