Seeing the Rolling Stones over the weekend trumps pretty much anything else you can do, any day of the week. Last Friday, I packed an overnight bag and headed over to Yas Island, in Abu Dhabi, determined to tick off another name on my “band list,” enjoy a mini staycation, and find out if rock ’n’ roll is, in fact, dead.
Rock ’n’ roll was alive and kicking—in a L’Wren Scott feather coat and Hedi Slimane outfits that my five-foot, two-inch self was only able to see thanks to my very tall and very kind companion.
The Stones delivered an incredibly electrifying and lengthy performance; some artists/bands tend to cut their UAE performances short (and arrive hours late), but it’s safe to say that on Friday night, we did get some satisfaction.
