The Rolling Stones Set Lists

Ronnie Wood

'During rehearsals, I draw up set lists on big canvases, putting down the songs and the keys they're in. We hang these set lists on the rehearsal room walls so we know where we've been and where we're going.' – Ronnie Wood

Over the last two decades, the songs that the Rolling Stones have played in rehearsals, live shows and studio sessions have been recorded by Ronnie Wood in a series of hand-painted set lists. The result is a unique collection of canvases that document sell-out tours across the globe, such as the band's landmark 50 & Counting tour, historic concerts such as 2016's performance in Havana, as well as closed-door sessions for their latest album, Blue & Lonesome.

Now for Genesis subscribers and for all fans of the Rolling Stones, we are delighted to present Ronnie Wood's painted set lists for the first time. Choose from two new limited editions, each signed by Ronnie Wood.

'Captures the huge range of songs the Stones will bring to life during one of their tours.' – Financial Times

'An insight into the Stones' development… an epic tome.' – Matt Everitt, BBC Radio 6 Music

'A new twist on the list.' – Mick Jagger

'In the early days, we'd play the song, and I'd run over to write it down on the set list, and Mick would always go, "Ronnie, come back, we've started the song, you can do that later!"' - Ronnie Wood

The Set Lists

The Rolling Stones Set Lists

'I illustrate the band's set lists, sometimes Keith and Mick add little doodles, and they become works of art in their own right.' - Ronnie Wood

Ronnie Wood has chosen more than 100 painted set lists to be published for the first time. Presented in chronological order, each year of set lists is introduced with a selection of photographs and Stones memorabilia, from A Bigger Bang in 2005 to the latest 2018 No Filter tour. The collection follows the group's travels to foreign rehearsal locations that were kept secret at the time. They reveal the songs rehearsed for historic performances, such as the Rolling Stones' 2014 inaugural concert in Israel, as well as documenting the shows as eventually played.

The colourful hand-lettering recalls Wood's early art school days when he worked as a sign writer. The set lists are visually eye catching and filled with fascinating details. Wood's calligraphy is interspersed with his own illustrations, doodles by fellow band members, and jotted notes that all add up to paint a picture of life on the road with the Rolling Stones.

The Manuscript

The Rolling Stones Set Lists

'It could be somebody coming in at the wrong moment, or forgetting the arrangement and suddenly going to the middle eight, when you can see Keith mouthing, "What the hell is he doing?" It's all part of what keeps the band vibrant.' - Ronnie Wood

Featuring an introduction by Mick Jagger, in a new 198-page manuscript Ronnie Wood offers a glimpse behind the scenes of one of the most famous rock groups in the world.
Ronnie Wood's personal reflections bring the story of the set lists to life as he discusses the band's creative process, learning up to 80 songs per tour; personal highlights, such as Valentine's Day 2014, when a small group of fans were invited into rehearsals; collaborations with fellow musicians such as The Black Keys, Eric Clapton, Florence Welch and Jeff Beck; and the band's various reunions with former Rolling Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.

In addition to Ronnie's quotes, extended captions analyse each set list in depth, examining the significance of certain songs and their place within the Rolling Stones' history. Nearly 150 photographs and items of memorabilia provide additional context.

'With its behind-the-scenes revelations, concert photos and endearing doodles, The Rolling Stones Set Lists has the feel of a diary.' - CNN Style
