HISTORY MADE LAST SUNDAY NIGHT
This marked a first not only for The Venetian Macao, but also for Macau as a whole.
"We made history Sunday night by bringing the one and only Rolling Stones to Macao," commented Edward Tracy, CEO of Sands China Ltd.
He added: "We have introduced many international names to Macao 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."
THE GANG'S ALL TOGETHER AGAIN
At the concert, Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood appeared on stage to overwhelming response, along with former member Mick Taylor who appeared as a special guest.
Keen fans had waited long for the veteran band Sunday night, and the spectacular performance was well worth the wait.
The entire auditorium literally went crazy.
ALL THE GREATEST HITS
The high-energy concert kicked off with "Jumpin' Jack Flash," followed by "You Got Me Rocking." They also sang "It's Only Rock and Roll," "Wild Horses" and "Doom & Gloom."
A highlight of the eagerly-awaited evening included the fantastic stage design with the ubiquitous tongue and lips logo the Rolling Stones are famed for.
