The Rolling Stones' second Indian concert in Bombay (Mumbai) on Monday was a sell-out, after fears that young music fans were ignoring the band.
The group played in Bangalore on Friday
The band kicked off the show at city's Brabourne Stadium with Brown Sugar, to the delight of 25,000 fans.
Many waved placards and shouted "We love you Mick Jagger!"
The band's first concert in India, as part of their Licks World
Tour was held Friday in the southern city of Bangalore, but was not sold out.
Despite reports of great excitement about the Indian concerts, the final tickets for the Bombay concert were sold with just hours to go.
"I'm picking up tickets for friends from Delhi who have finally said they can make it," said Piyush Prasanna, 38, a senior advertising manager, at a Bombay record shop on Monday.
He said the concert was a "trip down memory lane" for his former college friends.
The Stones have already performed 50 sell-out concerts in the US and eight in Australia.

at the Bangalore gig
They brought forward their Indian tour by almost a week after cancelling concerts in Hong Kong because of the Sars illness sweeping the Far East.
Between 10,000-20,000 people turned out to see them in Bangalore on Friday.
"I am not tuned into Rolling Stones but I came here to experience the stage performance of Mick Jagger," hotel employee Desh Niranjan said at the show.
"On the one hand I do not understand their type of music and I listen to Metallica and other rock bands. It is to see their skills that I came here for."
Lawyer N Sandeep, 26, said: "It is one of the greatest bands I have heard of but not listened to. It is great to experience the atmosphere."
Another young music lover, Chris Avinash, said the Stones had not received exposure in India like other acts such as Pink Floyd and Dire Straits.

young generation has not been brought up on a Stones diet," he said.
The shows involve digital plasma screens relaying footage from the stage, along with a 240,000-watt sound system, special effects and hundreds of mobile lights.
