Continuing the tradition of special guests at a Rolling Stones concert, blues wizard Gary Clark Jr and hip-hop soul queen Mary J. Blige will perform with the band in Brooklyn on Saturday.
Mary J. Blige sang ‘Gimme Shelter’ with The Rolling Stones at their first London show last week. Florence Welch sang on the second night. Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton were also guests of The Stones in London.
The two London shows also featured former Rolling Stones members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. It is yet-to-be confirmed if Wyman and Taylor will perform with The Rolling Stones in the USA.
The Brooklyn show on Saturday will be the first of three Rolling Stones shows for the ’50 and Counting’ event, marking the 50th anniversary of the band.
December 8, Brooklyn, The Barclays Center
December 13 and 15, Newark, Prudential Center
