A live Rolling Stones concert will air on HBO in January. The pay cable channel will present the Stones at New York's Madison Square Garden on Jan. 18, one of the last stops on their ongoing "Licks" tour, which hits Philadelphia tomorrow (Sept. 20). The group has also added another Madison Square Garden performance for Jan. 17 and a Jan. 21 show at Chicago's United Center.

The Stones previously performed live in 1997 for MTV's "Live at the 10 Spot" during their "Bridges to Babylon" tour.

On Monday at Chicago's Aragon Ballroom, the Stones got a boost from U2 frontman Bono, who joined the group for a rendition of their '70s favorite "It's Only Rock'N'Roll (But I Like It)." Keyboardist Dr. John, who opened the show, guested with the Stones on "I Just Want To Make Love To You."

The Stones launched the trek Sept. 3 in Boston and will release a career-spanning retrospective, "40 Licks," Oct. 1 via Virgin. One of the set's four new songs, "Don't Stop," is No. 22 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart this week.
