Rolling Stones wrap up tour in New Jersey

The Rolling Stones wrapped up their 50th anniversary tour on Saturday night with a star-studded set featuring Lady Gaga, John Mayer, The Black Keys, and Bruce Springsteen.
Frontman Mick Jagger introduced a jumpsuit-clad Gaga to join him on Gimme Shelter at their fifth and final official 50 and Counting show at New Jersey's Prudential Center, and the duo shared verses and danced together.
Mayer and fellow guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. also joined the Stones for Going Down, while The Black Keys followed with the Bo Diddley classic Who Do You Love?, and former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor also made an appearance.
Springsteen then thrilled the crowd with a version of Tumbling Dice, with Jagger joking that the New Jersey native had "walked to the show".
The most emotional moment of the night came when Jagger dedicated Wild Horses to the victims of the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, telling fans, "I just wanted to take a minute and send our love and condolences to those who lost their loved ones yesterday."
Wrapping up their mini-trek, Jagger told the crowd, "This is our last show... of the 50th anniversary tour. Hope to see you again soon."
The band's comeback is set to stretch into next year - the rockers are playing California's Coachella festival in April.

I ordered the pay per view on HD, and I thought the concert was a little weak, as if the Stones were performing in slow motion, and the volume seemed a bit low. I have seen the Stones live in 1989, 1994, 2006, but this concert the Stones are showing their age, it seems Mick is just going through the motions, like his heart is not in it anymore. This past July Mick gave a great performance on Saturday Night Live, because he was surrounded by young new musicians, the same happen at his Grammy performance with his raw old Mick Jagger energy, but when he gets back with the Stones his energy fire level goes down, and he proceeds to go through the motions. If they plan to add more tour dates they really need Mick Taylor back to add whats lacking with the Stones right now, he seems to be the only one with real true fire, the others have lost touch with reality. The Stones have always been my favorite group but to see them perform at a lower level of what their capable of is sad. Mick is a great actor, and to pull off a show by really not wanting to be there, is great accomplishment, you can tell he hates performing the same old songs over and over again, he has become what he wished he never wanted to be Mick-Elvis. As the concert was closing I notice on the teleprompter in front of Mick during Sympathy for the Devil, that it read What's your name? (4 count) Turn and wave, Say Goodbye and Leave Stage. My God it has come to this, all robotic, with no true feeling just going through the motions. I guess critics are right The Stones have gone completely corporate. Sad! Sad! Sad$
