​The Rolling Stones did not disappoint at Saturday’s Hope Estate concert in what lead singer Mick Jagger confessed was the band’s first ever vineyard gig. 

The 18,000-strong crowd was treated to over two-hours of the iconic bands greatest hits, including set openers Jumpin' Jack Flash and Let's Spend The Night Together.

After a throat infection saw the cancellation of the band’s Hanging Rock concert only a week prior, there had been some concerns that the Hunter performance would not come to be.

But despite a short absence from the stage that lead to a history making three song performance by guitarist Keith Richards, Jagger showed no signs of his acting his age. 

The crowd hung on every hip thrust and shimmy as the 71-year-old made the most of the stage, ensuring that every punter from the nosebleed section to the Hope Estate Hill were treated to an equally electric experience. 

Other highlights included crowd pleasers Start Me Up, Sympathy for the Devil and Brown Sugar as well as impressive encore featuring the Sydney Philharmonia choir for a haunting rendition of You Can’t Always Get What you Want.
