The Rolling Stones finished their 14 On Fire tour with the final show in Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday night.

36,577 fans witnessed the last show on the tour in Auckland, an incredible figure for a country with a population of only 4,471,000. A little short of 1% of the entire population of New Zealand were at the Stones concert last night.

Mick also gave the audience a cultural reference introducing his musical director as “The original Bilbo Baggins, on keyboard, Chuck Leavell.”

Lorde also scored a name-checking from Mick. “We usually put songs online & ask you to vote for them & learnt Royals by Lorde,” he said.

Keith Richards also referred to his month long stint in a New Zealand hospital after the previous tour when he had an accident on the way home while holidaying in Fiji. “Auckland, good evening! I nearly got buried here! Got good fortune is on my side,” he said.

So now the question is, was this ‘the last time’ for the Rolling Stones. No others dates have been officially announced but Keith Richards did say in September “[We’ve] got South America lined up in February, Buenos Aires, Peru. And after that, I know what the Stones tours are like, they tend to get extended.”
