As the black-and-white video begins, we see a sign on a door that reads “REHEARSALS IN PROGRESS,” and the door then proceeds to swing open. In the Instagram version of the promo, a message appears revealing that the rehearsals are taking place in Los Angeles.

The clip then features close-up footage of racks of guitars belonging to Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood, amplifiers, drums, a microphone, guitar picks, and other equipment. The video also includes footage of Richards and Woods holding guitars, although their faces aren’t visible, plus a blurry image of Jagger facing away from the camera.

Near the end of the video, the camera scrolls by a series of hand-drawn set lists featuring a mix of older classic songs and tunes from Hackney Diamonds. A message then appears on the screen that reads, “Let us know what you want to see on the set list!”
