Rolling Stones Close Out Tour With Bruce Springsteen, The Black Keys, Gary Clark Jr., John Mayer and More
The Rolling Stones closed out their “50 and Counting” tour with a bang last night at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The band was joined by number of special guests during the night, including Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, Gary Clark Jr., The Black Keys, Lady Gaga and Mick Taylor.
Pop diva Gaga was the first to make an appearance, contributing vocals to “Gimme Shelter.” Mayer and Clark—both of whom joined the Stones earlier this week—came out together to add their blues guitar chops to a rendition of Don Nix’s “Going Down,” while The Black Keys sat in for the tour debut of Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love.”
Once again, The Stones played a song that was selected by their fans, who chose the Sticky Fingers classic “Dead Flowers.” Former Stones guitarist Taylor also returned for an extended “Midnight Rambler” before Springsteen took the stage for “Tumbling Dice” in what was likely the highlight of the evening. The full setlist can be viewed below.
As previously reported, rumors have been circulating that The Rolling Stones will play the 2013 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The band posted the dates on the upcoming shows section of their mobile app briefly the other day before taking them down.
