Rolling Stones “Final” Show Will Feature Springsteen, Gaga, Black Keys


The Rolling Stones’ “final” show–December 15th at the Prudential Center in Newark–will have some big guest stars. They’re going to showcase Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen and the Black Keys. No word on whether Mary J. Blige, who’s performed at the Stones’s three other shows so far on this “50 and Counting” tour, will reprise her role during “Gimme Shelter.” And no word on what happened to original Stone Bill Wyman and mid-period member Mick Taylor, who performed with the group in London, were expected here, but didn’t show on Saturday night in Brooklyn. The December 15th show will be available on Yahoo and Pay Per View for $39.99. It’s the last announced show by the Stones, although everyone assumes more shows will be added in Los Angeles and other big cities in what might be a final victory lap by the World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band.
