The long awaited moment has finally arrived – the iconic Rolling Stones have finally step foot in the UAE!
The UAE has seen some giants of rock perform on its shores – Dubai and Abu Dhabi – from Metallica and Bon Jovi to Eagles.
But in terms of rock legends, this act is it.
The Rolling Stones will kick of their 14 On Fire tour at Abu Dhabi’s du Arena, Yas Island on Friday, February 21.
Mick Jagger had earlier said: “Can't wait to be back on stage especially in Abu Dhabi, I am really looking forward to playing all your favourite songs and seeing you all very soon.”
Keith Richards added: “The best place in the world for me is out on that stage. Standby everyone...its back to where we belong, Me, Mick, Charlie and Ronnie and some friends all rocking out together. The wheels are in motion and we’re on our way…see you very soon!”
Look for a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘Paint It Black’, ‘Jumping Jack Flash’, ‘Tumbling Dice’ and ‘It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll’, curated with lesser known gems, plus a couple of unexpected cover versions.
