Rolling Stones Get Satisfaction in UAE

Can a classic British rock ban get satisfaction playing in a culturally conservative country in the Middle East?

The answer is yes, if you're the Rolling Stones and you're playing for 30,000 fans in the United Arab Emirates.

Mick Jagger and the Stones played their first-ever concert in the Arab World Friday on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Jagger was dressed in a red jacket, black shirt, and jeans as he strutted across the stage and sang such Rolling Stones hits as It's Only Rock 'n Roll, Honky Tonk Woman, and Brown Sugar.

Guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood and drummer Charlie Watts contributed their skills as the Stones played 19 songs during the two-hour long show.
