The Rolling Stones opened their 14 on Fire tour on Friday night with their first performance ever in the United Arab Emirates.

The show at the du Arena at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi was 19-songs long with very few changes from their 2013 tour. Although they have rehearsed sixty songs for this year’s trek, the only unplayed song to make Friday’s list was Slipping Away from Steel Wheels. Former member Mick Taylor is, once again, along for the ride this year performing on two songs.
