The Rolling Stones played their traditional small club show before hitting the arenas Thursday night, in front of 600 fans at LaTrabendo in Paris. Although they leaned heavily on hits from the '70s in the hour-long 12-song set, they opened with a cover they might have played in a club 50 years ago, "Route 66."

Leaping forward to the mid-'70s, they trotted out "It's Only Rock and Roll" and two fromSome Girls, "Shattered" and "When the Whip Comes Down." Following another cover,Muddy Waters' "Champagne and Reefer," they jumped to the present with the new single "Doom and Gloom," then slid back to Some Girls for "Miss You" and rocked another '70s hit, "Tumbling Dice."

The only song from the band's '80s repertoire, "Start Me Up," came next, followed by two late-'60s classics, "Midnight Rambler" and, as the first encore, "Jumpin' Jack Flash." Then it was back to the '70s to close with "Brown Sugar."

The show was a prelude to the Stones' two November appearances at London's O2 arena and two in December at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
