Rolling Stones to Be Joined by Eric Clapton, Florence Welch at Thursday's Concert in London
The Rolling Stones have announced that two new special guests will be joining them at their second "50 & Counting" anniversary concert at London's O2 Arena, which takes place on Thursday. Eric Clapton and Florence Welch, frontwoman for Grammy-nominated British alt-rockers Florence and the Machine, will hit the stage with the rock legends.
As previously reported, two former Stones members -- bassist Bill Wyman and guitarist Mick Taylor -- also are expected to play with the band on Thursday. Wyman and Taylor performed with the group at the O2 Arena on Sunday, when The Stones launched their 50 & Counting Tour. In addition, that concert featured guest appearances by Jeff Beck and R&B diva Mary J. Blige.
Following Thursday's show, The Rolling Stones will head to the U.S. for a December 8 performance in Brooklyn, New York, and a pair of concerts in Newark, New Jersey on December 13 and 15.
