The Rolling Stones have invited Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and the Black Keys to their final "50 and Counting" concert, celebrating an astounding half-century as a band, being held Saturday at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The concert will be telecast live pay-per-view in a Ken Ehrlich-produced special called "One More Shot."
Roll With It
"We're excited these extraordinary artists have agreed to help celebrate our 50th Anniversary as we share the night live with our fans all over the world," the band said in a statement. "Now the fun begins of trying to figure out the best songs to perform together."
May we humbly suggest "Honky Tonk Woman" for Gaga, a dirty/bluesy "Midnight Rambler" with the Keys and take-your-pick with The Boss.
Fresh off a triumphant debut in Brooklyn on Saturday, where the band gave the borough a 2-hour onslaught of hits spanning five decades, the Stones next play the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief on Wednesday before starting their 2-show stint in Newark on Thursday.
"People ask us why we're still doing this," Jagger said to the Brooklyn audience late in the show over the weekend. "It's for you."
