LAS VEGAS — The Rolling Stones played a blistering 90-minute surprise set on Oct. 3 for 1,200 truckers at the 2016 Freightliner customer appreciation dinner here.
The event took place during American Trucking Associations’ annual Management Conference & Exhibition.
The band played a 14-song set spanning their legendary catalog inside a conference room converted into a concert venue at the Bellagio hotel.
Throughout the evening lead singer Mick Jagger praised the work that truckers perform and thanked Martin Daum, president of Daimler Trucks North America, for inviting them to play.
At one point, Jagger named several Freightliner truck models, saying they were great for taking the family on a Sunday afternoon drive.
