The Rolling Stones played a blistering 90-minute surprise set on Oct. 3 for 1,200 truckers at the 2016 Freightliner customer appreciation dinner here.

The event took place during American Trucking Associations’ annual Management Conference & Exhibition.

The band played a 14-song set spanning their legendary catalog inside a conference room converted into a concert venue at the Bellagio hotel.

Throughout the evening lead singer Mick Jagger praised the work that truckers perform and thanked Martin Daum, president of Daimler Trucks North America, for inviting them to play.

At one point, Jagger named several Freightliner truck models, saying they were great for taking the family on a Sunday afternoon drive.

He also joked he was asked not to name any specific trucking companies or executives, something that Paul McCartney had done during his set at last year’s Freightliner dinner in Philadelphia.

The Rolling Stones and McCartney are both taking part in a musical festival each of the next two weekends in California, billed as the Desert Trip.

The Stones also return to Las Vegas to perform on Oct. 19 and Oct. 22 at T-Mobile Arena.

The Stones updated their website Oct. 3, hinting at an announcement coming Oct. 6. Music industry speculation is that the announcement will reveal the release date for an upcoming blues-themed album.

The set list performed by The Rolling Stones at the Freightliner event:

Start Me Up

You Got Me Rocking

It’s Only Rock 'N Roll

Out of Control

Tumbling Dice

Wild Horses

Mixed Emotions

Honky Tonk Women

Miss You
