Singer Lana Del Rey, model Naomi Campbell and actor Ed Westwick were among the stars who turned up to see the Rolling Stones kick off their American shows with a massive gig here.
The legendary rockers began their 50th anniversary comeback concerts in London last month and they have now taken the shows across the Atlantic for a series of gigs on America's East Coast, the New York Post reported.
The musicians played their first US show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Campbell shared her excitement by posting pictures from the gig on her Twitter page, she wrote, "Rolling Stones still rocking the world. Barclay (sic) Center NY major!"
The Rolling Stones treated the crowd to a guest appearance from Mary J Blige, who previously appeared with the band at one of the London shows, in a rendition of hit track 'Gimme Shelter', while Gary Clark, Jr played guitar and sang on a version of 'Going Down' by blues legend Freddy King.
However, former Stones stars Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor, who previously re-joined the band during the London shows, were absent from the Brooklyn gig, which featured popular hits 'Paint It Black', 'Brown Sugar', 'Sympathy for the Devil' and '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction'.
