Rolling Stones Announce Special Guests for Brooklyn Concert
The Rolling Stones and Mary J. Blige must have had a good time when she visited them on stage at the O2 Arena for their Nov. 25 show, because she's joining them again in Brooklyn -- and she'll have company.
The Stones have announced that Blige will be on hand for their Dec. 8 show, along with up-and-coming recording artist Gary Clark Jr., whose full-length debut record, 'Blak and Blu,' has already topped a number of critics' year-end best-of lists.
The show, the third on the band's '50 and Counting' mini-tour, will be held at Brooklyn's Barclay Center; the following week, the Stones will head over to Newark, N.J., for a pair of shows at the Prudential Center on Dec. 13 and 15.
As the band's website points out, the Dec. 15 show will be aired as a standalone pay-per-view event. Dubbed 'One More Shot' (after one of the two new songs on the Stones' latest best-of compilation, 'GRRR!'), the live broadcast will be available through most major cable carriers for a fee of $39.99 -- not cheap by any means, but a fair bit more affordable than the infamously expensive prices for actual seats on the '50 and Counting' tour.
