VIDEO: Rolling Stones close 14 On Fire tour in New Zealand

The Rolling Stones played the final show of their 14 On Fire tour in Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday.

The 19-song set at Mount Smart Stadium opened with the 1981 classic, “Start Me Up”, and ran through the band’s extensive catalog, including the fan-voted song of the night, “Like A Rolling Stone.”

“Fantastic show last night in Auckland, a great way to end the tour,” posted Mick Jagger. “Sorry about the rain, but you all looked beautiful in your ponchos!”

The 14 On Fire tour opened in Adu Dhabi in February before playing dates in Japan and the Far East in the spring; a summer trek through Europe followed before reaching Australia and New Zealand.

The fall shows down under were rescheduled from this past spring following the sudden passing of Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, L’Wren Scott.
