The Stone Roses, 'Elephant Stone'

Since reuniting last year, The Stone Roses have been somewhat consistent in their setlists, sticking to a core group of songs based, not surprisingly, around their classic 1989 debut. But in Paris last night, as the NME points out, the band surprised fans by performing 1988’s “Elephant Stone” — a non-album single shoehorned onto the U.S. version of The Stone Roses — and “Made of Stone” B-side “Going Down” for the first time since 1990.

Plus, the band — which plays Paris’ La Cigale again tonight before its big London shows this weekend — threw in “Breaking Into Heaven,” performing the Second Coming opener for the first time since 1996.

Below, you can check out the full setlist and watch fan-filmed video (via GAXVIDEO) of the first 26 minutes of the gig (advance to 5:50 to see “Elephant Stone” and 18:10 for “Going Down”).
