The Rolling Stones tonight played the final show of their tour of Australia and New Zealand, and the final show of their 14 ON FIRE tour.
Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie played a 19 song set to a besotted crowd of 36,577 fans.
The winner of this Auckland’s hotly contested fan vote was Like A Rolling Stone, which one by a whisker of just over 500 votes. This was the third time the song won the fan song vote this year, having previously won in Madrid and, this tour’s opening night, in Adelaide.
The touring band at the Mount Smart Stadium, and every other show on this leg of the tour were, Lisa Fischer and Bernard Fowler on backing vocals, Tim Ries on sax and keys, Karl Denson on tenor saxophone, Darryl Jones on bass, Chuck Leavell on keys, and musical integrator Matt Clifford.
The Rolling Stones played 8 shows in Australia and New Zealand, travelled over 18,000 miles and 173,838 fans came to see them.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME TO SEE US IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND, AND ALL AROUND THE WORLD THIS YEAR!
