The Rolling Stones are now four shows into their 2021 No Filter Tour, and they have yet to play “Brown Sugar” a single time. The tune has been a staple of their live show since it came out 50 years ago, and it’s the second most played song in their catalog with 1,136 known performances.


Jumpin Jack Flash is #1.


During a conversation with the L.A. Times, guitarist Keith Richards and singer Mick Jagger have confirmed the band is taking its 1971 classic “Brown Sugar” off the setlist for the upcoming tour dates.


“I’m trying to figure out with the sisters quite where the beef is. Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery? But they’re trying to bury it… At the moment I don’t want to get into conflicts with all of this shit. But I’m hoping that we’ll be able to resurrect the babe in her glory somewhere along the track.”
