Lead singer Mick Jagger greeted the crowd saying in Hebrew "Erev tov, hag Shavuot sameah," which means "Good evening, Happy Shavuot."

Opening act Rami Fortis hit the stage at 8 p.m and the Stones followed at 9:15 p.m. The show's starting time was pushed back in order to leave enough time for religiously observant fans to attend the concert after the Shavuot holiday.

The Stones arrived in Israel on Monday night and band members visited the Western Wall and the ancient ruins of Caesarea before their Wednesday night show.
