Mexico City - The Rolling Stones have made a triumphant return to Mexico City a decade after they last performed in the country.

Mick Jagger celebrated Monday night's concert at a packed sports stadium poking fun at actor Sean Penn, whose magazine interview with then-fugitive drug capo Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has provoked controversy in Mexico.

The British band's frontman joked to the crowd that Penn had come to his hotel to interview him, "but I escaped".

Jagger told the audience of some 60 000 that it was "cool to be back" in Mexico City after a 10-year absence, expressing fondness for "lucha libre" wrestling and the ancient pyramid ruins of Teotihuacan.

He also joked that before the band enjoyed drinking tequila, but now they prefer the smokier agave-based spirit known as mezcal.
