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.

Thanks to the real fans for supplying the facts of this show!
$7 MILLION BIRTHDAY BASH
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.
