No Sexually Explicit Songs for Stones' China Gig

The Rolling Stones will likely follow the beat of China's censors when they offer mainland fans some long-awaited satisfaction with an April concert

Do not expect to perform their four songs of "Let's Spend the Night Together," "Brown Sugar," "Honky Tonk Women" and "Beast of Burden" in their China debut in April later this year because they surely won't sing those songs. Why? No reasons were given, but surely those are the most sexually explicit of the band's hits.

And realizing that there are differences between Chinese and Western cultures, the Stones have agreed to follow the beat of China's censors when they offer their first-ever concert there. "This time, they also probably will not play those songs," a company employee surnamed Gu speaking on the matter. "They know there are differences between Chinese and Western cultures. They don't want to do anything against the Chinese government," she continued.
