ROLLING STONES: If It Was the Last Time...
The Rolling Stones wrapped up their 50 and Counting tour on Saturday.
The Rolling Stones wrapped up their 50 and Counting tour on Saturday with the second of two shows at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The show, which was broadcast on pay-per-view as One More Shot, featured four special guests and a slightly reworked set list.
The guests this time out were former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, who played at four of the five shows they did this year, Bruce Springsteen, The Black Keys, Lady Gaga, John Mayer -- who also played with the Stones on Thursday in Newark -- and Gary Clarke Jr., who was at the Brooklyn show on December 8th.
The the set list was changed slightly with "It's Only Rock n' Roll (But I Like It)" being bumped up to the third song in the set, and the addition of "Dead Flowers," and "Who Do You Love" with The Black Keys. Lady Gaga sang on "Gimme Shelter" and Springsteen came out for "Tumbling Dice."
The tragedy that took place Friday in Newtown, Connecticut was not lost on the Stones or the audience as Mick Jagger dedicated "Wild Horses" to the 26 victims of the deadly school shooting. "I just wanted to take a minute and send our love and condolences to those who lost their loved ones," he said.
While Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood both say once that they are up and running the chances of continuing into 2013 are pretty good. Mick Jagger says there are no plans, but perhaps the recently launched Stones app revealed a little too much. On Friday, the app listed a date for April 12th, 2013, which is the opening date of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California. The date is no longer listed on the app.
