The Rolling Stones ended their 50th Anniversary tour in star-studded style in New Jersey

The Rolling Stones finished their U.S. tour in star-studded style when the band was joined on stage by Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, The Black Keys, and Lady Gaga during their Saturday concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

To end their 50th Anniversary Tour in The U.S., The Rolling Stones invited several special guests to the stage in Newark on Saturday. Bruce Springsteen joined the Stones on “Tumbling Dice” before Lady Gaga took the stage for “Gimme Shelter,” The Black Keys on “Who Do You Love?” and John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. on guitar next to Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood on “Goin’ Down.”

The British rockers created a huge stir back in November when they announced plans for a short 50th Anniversary tour in support of their new greatest hits album, GRRR, which includes the new song “Doom and Gloom.”

The Rolling Stones recently participated in the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Relief concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden alongside Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, and many others before the show in New Jersey on Saturday. The 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Relief concert raised $32 million from ticket and merchandise sales alone for the Robin Hood Relief Fund.

On Saturday, The Rolling Stones also took a special moment to remember the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut where 28 people lost their lives in the tragic shooting.

Mick Jagger ended the show with an emphatic farewell that sounded more like a promise, “This is the last show of our anniversary tour,” said Jagger, “and we hope to see you all again soon.”
