SHANGHAI, April 6 (UPI) -- The Rolling Stones arrived in Shanghai Thursday with some time to see the sights before their first concert ever on China's mainland.

Saturday night's "A Bigger Bang" is expected to sell out the 8,000-seat Shanghai Grand Stage, the Shanghai Daily reported.

Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Charlie Watts smiled and waved at reporters as they left their chartered flight from Japan, the newspaper said.

The SARS epidemic three years ago forced the British rockers to cancel their China debut.
