Rolling Stones perform at halftime of Super Bowl XL in Detroit

Detroit’s Ford Field hosted Super Bowl XL on February 5, 2006 between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks.

The halftime show featured the Rolling Stones, one of the most iconic and legendary rock groups in musical history. The group’s stage was the iconic tongue logo – a 600 member volunteer stage crew assembled the 28 pieces of the stage in five minutes and was viewed by a total of 89.9 million people.

They performed three songs – Start Me Up, Rough Justice, and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.

The Steelers would defeat the Seahawks by a 21-10 final score, with Hines Ward being named MVP.
