NEW YORK (AP) — The Rolling Stones celebrated the release of their first collection of new original songs in 18 years with a club gig in Manhattan before a few hundred invited guests.

The rock legends performed seven songs Thursday, four of them from the new “Hackney Diamonds” disc. The album is out Friday. But they had time for a few favorites. “You might be familiar with this one,” singer Mick Jagger said before Keith Richards began the opening riff to “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” instantly trumping the thousands of bar band versions attempted in the 55 years since its release.

Only this time, the band at the bar was the Rolling Stones.
