This is the correct and verified set list of this show, as updated on Dec. 6. The previously published set list here was correct, except for "Bitch" was not played, replaced now with "Dead Flowers", actually played, and the order of the songs has been corrected. Thanks to everyone who helped in verifying the set list of this private show.


This was a show with the set list more from a stadium show than from the club show. They did not play any rarities, just the big hits. But that must be the dream for any Stones fan, to get the best songs in a small place with such a small crowd.

John Mellencamp opened the party, and played for about an hour. The Joint can hold approx. 1700 people, but for this show they had taken out all the chairs, it was all open. And it was an intimate party of just 500 or so people.

The Rolling Stones played for may be one and a half hour. You might expect such a crowd of specially invited party people to make a quiet show, but they really got into the show. Playing the big hits did of course help a lot.

They did not play "Can't You Hear Me Knocking", the song that the real fans at the party wanted so much to get, and a song you would expect on every smaller show, but they got all these other songs you see below.

It has beeen hard work to get all the facts and details of this show. If you have additional information, please send it to iorr. Thanks!

Thanks to the real fans for supplying the facts of this show!

Background information

by the New York Post, Nov 13, 2002

TEXAS billionaire David Bonderman is throwing himself one hell of a 60th-birthday party. The buyout king - a founding partner of the Texas Pacific Group, a private equity firm - has booked dozens of rooms at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for this weekend and hired the Rolling Stones to entertain his guests. Bonderman is said to be spending $7 million on the weekend. Mick Jagger and his bandmates will join up with John Mellencamp on Saturday to play at the Hard Rock's concert venue, the Joint, after a private dinner hosted by funnyman Robin Williams. Bonderman is having a temporary staircase built in the Joint, so guests won't have to leave the hall - and mingle with uninvited casino patrons - to get from the main room to the VIP balcony. Reps for Jagger, Williams and Mellencamp had "heard nothing about this."

Texas Pacific Group

Texas Pacific Group is based in Fort Worth, Texas and manages US$7 billion. It buys money losing firms and improves their performance, often selling them years later for a profit. This was done with Continental Airlines, which TPG bought in 1993 and then sold in 1998. It is led by Harvard law graduate David Bonderman, who is also chairman of European air carrier Ryanair. The firm has large stakes in many familiar names, including Del Monte fruits and vegetables, Punch Taverns, Ducati motorcycles, and J. Crew clothing. It is currently in the process of buying Burger King from Diageo of the U.K.
