The Rolling Stones rocked Macau with their first-ever concert at The Venetian Macau’s Cotai Arena last night (Sunday).

 The legendary band took the stage in front of a sold-out audience of over 10,000 enthusiastic fans for The Rolling Stones 14 On Fire tour presented by Prudential Corporation Asia together with its asset management arm Eastspring Investments.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood took to the stage to overwhelming response, along with former member Mick Taylor who appeared as a special guest.

The high-energy concert kicked off with “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” followed by “You Got Me Rocking” Some timeless tunes the audience was treated to included “It’s Only Rock and Roll”, “Wild Horses” and “Doom & Gloom”.

Another highlight of the eagerly-awaited evening included the fantastic stage design with the ubiquitous tongue and lips logo the Rolling Stones are famed for. The ‘Tongue Pit’ general admission area in front of the stage gave screaming fans a 360 degree concert experience.

Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design featured video screens and special effects that enhanced the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones show.

 Fans rocked, swayed and sang along as the Stones delivered a bevy of monster hits, enjoying the electric atmosphere created in the Cotai Arena by the energetic performance.

The Rolling Stones have been singing and touring for five decades, making them one of the longest running rock ’n’ roll bands in the history of modern music.

“We made history Sunday night by bringing the one-and-only Rolling Stones to Macau,” said Edward Tracy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sands China Ltd. “We have introduced many international names to Macau concert goers over the years – both talented and unique individuals. Welcoming a band as celebrated, loved and internationally acclaimed as the Rolling Stones is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we and Macau are very privileged to be able to host one of their touring shows. This marks one more move in Sands China’s support in establishing Macau as the place to be in Asia for non-stop superstar entertainment and an enormous diversity of leisure and business attractions. With each mega-event, our city’s global profile as a world centre of tourism and leisure reaches ever higher.”

After rocking fans in Macau, The Rolling Stones 14 On Fire Tour carries on, with another gig to take place at Sands Grand Ballroom at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
