Florence and the Machine at Deluna Fest 2012 (more by Dana [distrotion] Yavin)
Florence Welch, who joined the Rolling Stones at their recent London show and just received two Grammy nominations, stopped singing to break up a fight at one of her own shows the other night at AECC in Scotland. You can watch the whole thing go down, beginning at the 1:20 mark in the video below...
Mick Jagger w/ Mary J. Blige in London last month
When The Rolling Stones played their two London shows in November, they were joined by a number of guests including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Mick Taylor, Bill Wyman, Florence Welch, and Mary J. Blige. And now they've revealed that Blige will also join them at their Brooklyn show at Barclays Center this Saturday (12/8), along with upcoming blues riffer Gary Clark Jr., who takes after a similar lineage (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, etc) as the Stones and probably owes a bit of his sound to them as well. Tickets for that show are still available.
The Stones also play two nights at The Prudential Center (12/13 and 12/15), the latter of which will stream live. Tickets for both of those shows are still available too.
A video of Mary J Blige doing "Gimme Shelter" with the Stones in London is HERE and more videos and the setlists from those shows are below.
"Because English singer-songwriter Dido, who is nominated with Rollo Armstrong and A.R. Rahman for "If I Rise" from 127 Hours, was not available for tonight's show, the producers have recruited Florence Welch from Florence + the Machine to appear with Rahman. Welch is coming off a standout performance in the opening number of the Grammys.Trent Reznor is nominated for Best Score.
Along with the best original song nominees, tonight's show also will feature the P.S. 22 Chorus, an elementary school chorus from Staten Island, N.Y., who will make a joyous musical appearance singing "Over the Rainbow," according to The Hollywood Reporter." [BAM's Blog]
