“We first played Oslo in June 1965,” he said.
“We played nine songs – we’ve played more than that already!”
The two-hour set included hits such as Satisfaction and Brown Sugar.
In March, The Rolling Stones interrupted their tour and later rescheduled all their Australia and New Zealand tour dates following the news that L’Wren Scott – Mick Jagger’s partner since 2001 – had committed suicide.
