Heartthrobs Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Johnny Depp stood alongside metal mavens Lars Ulrich, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, and Tommy Lee as the Rolling Stones closed the current leg of their "Bridges To Babylon" tour with a club gig Sunday night in Las Vegas.
According to Reuters, the crowd at Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel & Casino numbered only 1,400, but was thick with famous faces as Sting, Eddie Murphy, Jenny McCarthy and Drew Barrymore were also in attendance. Of those gathered for the show, Reuters reports that only 200 bought tickets (shelling out between $300 and $500) as the rest of the tickets went to Vegas VIPs.
In moving to a much smaller stage than the band is used to these days, the Stones reportedly scaled back their stage set, but still delivered a high-energy set. Sheryl Crow, who opened the show, reportedly returned to the stage to duet with Mick Jagger on the Stones' classic "Honky Tonk Women," and the group also pulled out nuggets like "Satisfaction,"
Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone," and "Brown Sugar."
The band is now off to Japan for four dates at the Tokyo Dome, and will then take its "Bridges To Babylon" tour across Europe.
