The Rolling Stones played the first of their three U.S. 50 And Counting anniversary shows at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn on Saturday. (A review of the show, which featured guest spots from Mary J. Blige and Gary Clark Jr., from today's New York Times is here.)
The Stones have two more to go, on Thursday and Saturday nights at the Prudential Center in Newark. Today the band announced that the second of those sold-out shows will be a pay per view event, with cameos from Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and the Black Keys. Comcast is charging $39.99 to see the show. Details here.
Last week, the Stones were added to the Hurricane Sandy relief 12-12-12 show, this Wednesday at Madison Square Garden. That show, which also features Springsteen, Kante West, Paul McCartney and many others, can be seen and heard for free on many different TV and radio stations and web sites. Info on where is here.
