"You Can't Always Get What You Want" Live

Was there any reason that the Stones didn't perform "You Can't Always Get What You Want" with a choir live in concert, in the early years (1969-74)?

Did they ever play a master tape of the first 50 seconds (with the London Bach Choir singing) of the song live in concert once?

I'm only aware of the 50th anniversary tour including a choir for YCAGWYW. You might appreciated the Dave Frost '69 version using the studio backing track, choir and all. Though they skip the 50s choir intro.





Europe '73 version, eg: Brussels, Birmingham, London didn't use a choir. Mick Taylor played a luscious lead and Trevor Lawrence a spectacular sax lead:

THe choir aside,
did anyone noticed that at Landgraaf last Saterday they finished completely different in comparison with how they usually end this song.
First it looked/sounded like the song was finished, but than they went a little further with it, with a lot of piano.
A very, very strange ending.

Choir? The live YCAGWYW from 1972-82 was simplified and scaled down to provide a lot of solo space. The live arrangement wasn't close to the studio version until 1989.
