The Rolling Stones played their first of three shows in Tokyo at the Tokyo Dome as part of their ongoing world tour on 2/26. Since it's right around the corner, we decided to stop by (the day after we saw Nine Inch Nails), and here's what we saw. Pictures (including one of the setlist) from the show are in this post. They continue, with video and the setlist from the 3/4 show, which saw them playing "Silver Train" (with Mick Taylor) for the first time in 40 years, below...

The Rolling Stones are currently on a North American tour which brought them to Oakland last night (5/5) for a show at Oracle Arena. They played a bunch of the usual favorites like "Tumbling Dice," "Get Off of My Cloud," "Miss You," "Jumpin' Jack Flash," and so on. But most excitingly, on their version of the blues staple "Little Red Rooster," they brought out another blues-lover, Tom Waits, to help them perform it. Check out a video of that performance and the setlist from last night below.

As mentioned, The Rolling Stones are going on a North American tour this year (Mick Taylor included). The tour was set to kick off in LA on May 2 but was pushed back a day due to NBA playoffs, and will now begin at LA's Staples Center on May 3. However, they did a surprise show at a much smaller LA venue last night (4/27): the 320-cap Echoplex club, as Reuters reports. A picture of the setlist and a video from last night's show are below.
Still no NYC dates announced for this run, but they'll make their way over to the Northeast for shows in Boston on June 12 and 14 at TD Garden and in Philly on June 18 and 21 at Wells Fargo Center. Tickets for those shows and other North American dates are still available.
Updated dates, including three shows in Chicago, are listed, along with the setlist and video from Echoplex, below...
Rolling Stones w/ Lady Gaga at Prudential Center - 12/15/12 (via Sarah Neves)
The Rolling Stones wrapped up their '50 and Counting' shows at Prudential Center in Newwark, NJ on Saturday (12/15), after playing the same venue two days earlier. They were joined by previously announced guests Lady Gaga on "Gimme Shelter," The Black Keys on a cover of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love?", former Stone Mick Taylor on "Midnight Rambler," and Bruce Springsteen on "Tumbling Dice." In addition to those guests, John Mayer (who was a surprise guest at the first Prudential Center show) and Gary Clark Jr. (who was a guest at their Barclays Center show) joined the band for a cover of Don Nix's "Going Down," and The Choir of Trinity Wall Street again joined them for "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

Rolling Stones @ Prudental Center -- 12/13/2012 (photo by caviartaste)
The Rolling Stones, with advertised special guest Mick Taylor, along with surprise guest John Mayer, played their first of two shows at the Prudential Center in NJ on Thursday night (12/13). Check out the full setlist below.
The show was their third NYC-appearance in a few days. The previous one was one night earlier as part of the 12-12-12 benefit at Madison Square Garden, and before that it was a headlining show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn with special guests Gary Clark Jr. and Mary J. Blige. The final show of the run, which is going to be available live on Pay Per View, is back at the Prudential Center on Saturday with advertised special guests Mick Taylor, Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen and the Black Keys.

Rolling Stones at Barclays Center - 12/8/12 (via Marie-Joelle Parent)
The Rolling Stones came to the US/NYC area for their first of four appearances here on Saturday for a Barclays Center show. Gary Clark Jr. and Mary J Blige joined them for that one, and the setlist (which you can see HERE) was pretty similar to their London shows. The Stones next play the huge Sandy benefit at MSG (12/12/12) and then head to Newark, NJ for two Prudential Center shows (12/13 and 12/15). The 12/15 will be streamed live and the Stones just revealed some pretty huge guests for that one: fellow 12/12/12 musician Bruce Springsteen, younger blues rock torchbearers The Black Keys, and megastar Lady Gaga.
In other news, NY Times posted a review of the Barclays Center show and here's an excerpt:
What is a Stones show? Musically, now that they're in their 50th year and a long time before now, it doesn't seem to be so much about the performances you're actually hearing in real time. It's an oldies show that can become a flickering re-enactment ritual: momentarily you hear a sound that's both well-worn and alive, with a huge amount of meaning attached to it -- it's almost always a guitar riff or a drum fill -- and then it's gone, pulled under into a more functional or starchier or sometimes sloppier passage. And visually it's about Mick Jagger's stamina. Saturday's show was the start of the American part of the Stones' "50 and Counting" tour; as long as he was on stage, during the show's two and a quarter hours, he never stopped. In running shoes and stretchy black clothes he bounced on his toes with knees slightly bent and swinging independently of each other, like a woman in high heels trying to walk in more than one direction.You can check out a few videos from that show below.
The Rolling Stones, Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY - 12/8/2012
Next up: The Stones play MSG as part of the big Hurricane Sandy Benefit, and then two shows at Prudential Center in NJ.

The Rolling Stones are playing Barclays Center in Brooklyn tonight (did you get a ticket?), and as wished/hoped/rumored, they were in fact added to the much-scalped Hurricane Sandy Benefit happening at Madison Square Garden on 12/12, a show that will be very "widely distributed"...
The producers of "12-12-12" announced today that the concert at Madison Square Garden on December 12, 2012, at 7:30 PM (ET) to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy, will have unprecedented and historic global distribution, similar to that of the Superbowl, the Academy Awards®, and the Grammys®.The Stones join the all-star line-up that already included Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Roger Waters, Eddie Vedder, Kanye West, The Who and Paul McCartney.
Nearly 2 billion people worldwide will be able to access "12-12-12" on television, radio and the internet. The concert, presented by Chase, will be available to all 114 million television households in the US and to more than 400 million television households outside the country via networks and feeds in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
Further elevating this event to its historic levels of distribution is live streaming on the largest online video services in the world, including YouTube, AOL, Yahoo, Hulu, and others. Combined, these video streaming services reach over 1.4 billion monthly unique users worldwide.
In addition, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, with its 239 million monthly listeners and more than 48 million monthly digital uniques, will broadcast the concert live on its radio stations across the country, and will also video stream live on iHeartRadio, Clear Channel's digital radio service, and across the websites and Facebook pages of its 850 stations.
AND: "A new list of celebrity presenters was also released today, including Steve Buscemi, Jessica Chastain, Chelsea Clinton, Sean Combs, Billy Crystal, Leo DiCaprio, Jimmy Fallon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Karlie Kloss, Seth Meyers, Bobby Moynihan, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Susan Sarandon, Jon Stewart, Kristen Stewart, Quentin Tarantino, and Brian Williams."
The Rolling Stones' two NJ shows happen right after MSG.
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.
a still from 'Gimme Shelter'
The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, and already have some things planned, like their greatest hits album, GRRR!, which is due out on November 13 via ABKCO/Universal. The amazing cover art for that album is below.
Still no word on those Barclays Center shows, which are rumored to happen this November, but a film exhibition chronicling The Stones' career, The Rolling Stones: 50 Years on Film, will open at MoMA on November 15 and run through December 2. THe exhibition will feature screenings of multiple "documentaries, fiction features, concert films, music videos, experimental shorts, and archival footage" of the band from their early days in the '60s through present time. Head below to find out what they'll be showing.
We already posted lots of posts today. Here's some more, and some reminders too...

In other bands who were good in the '90s Barclays Center news and, Smashing Pumpkins warmed up for their arena tour with an intimate, two-and-a-half-hour show at Stubb's in Austin last night. The tour hits the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Halloween.
Apple knows its maps app sucks.
Trevor Dunn, who is currently on tour as a member of Melvins Lite, took to his tour diary to comment on Green Day frontman BIlie Joe Armstrong's recent freakout: "That guy's main problem is that he doesn't realize that he is Justin Bieber."
Do you love the blown-out, pixelated artork on MIA albums? You may want to buy here coffee table book then.
On a somewhat similar publishing tip, Diplo "and photographer Shane McCauley are launching the zine series Blow Your Head. Each volume will explore a different country and musical genre.
Tour diaries are hot these days. (Have you read ours with Kelly Pratt whose touring with David Byrne and St. Vincent)? Diamond Rings and Stars writing about their adventures on the road for The Huffington Post. Those adventures included a show at Webster Hall this week.
Winter is coming for everyone, it seems. Neko Case tweeted today: "Dude. I'm just gonna admit to being balls-deep in Game of Thrones on CD."
While on the subject of rock star confessions, a recent quote from Pete Townshend: "What I remember of the size of Mick Jagger's penis - I remember it as being huge and extremely tasty."

Speaking of St. Vincent, today is Annie Clark's 30th birthday. Happy Birthday, Annie! We always liked this picture of her, by Chris La Putt, from her days as a member of the Polyphonic Spree:
It's also Les Claypool of Primus' birthday, who turn 49. Catch Primus on tour this fall.
Not that surprising, but awesome -Austin just became the first Texas city to endorse marriage equality.

Mick Jagger hosts and performs on Saturday Night Live this weekend. The above screen shot is from one of the two promo videos you can watch below...
by Bill Pearis
The 37th season of Saturday Night Live comes to a close next weekend (May 19) where Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger will pull double duty as both host and musical guest. Before you plan your bathroom breaks you might be interested to learn that Mick's backing band will include both Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire. Though we're still eight days from the live telecast, Jann Wenner has already give the SNL season finale five stars.
Meanwhile, this week's SNL has Will Ferrell and Usher.
What songs Mick will do is anyone's guess, but Will (brother of Win) Butler and other members of the Arcade Fire (as Phi Slamma Jamma) may have been getting some practice with a cover of the Stones' "The Last Time" at last weekend's Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival.
Last year, Mick released the debut album by his new group SuperHeavy that also includes Joss Stone, Damian Marley and the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart. The video for SuperHeavy's single "Miracle Worker" is below.
Bruce Springsteen & Tom Morello @ MSG (BMoreSweet)
U2 closed the second night of the MSG Rock & Roll Hall of Fame shows on October 30th. At the first (10/29), it was Bruce Springsteen & Billy Joel (before one big group sing on Jackie Wilson's "Higher and Higher")...
After "Badlands" much of the drained audience began leaving and then rushed back to their seats when Billy Joel sat down at the piano and launched into "You May Be Right," "Only The Good Die Young" and "New York State Of Mind." (The pair were uniting the kindred spirits of New Jersey and Long Island, Springsteen explained.) "Higher and Higher" wrapped up the night. The official set list had the show ending at 11:36:55 (yes, they thought they had it down to the exact second), but the final notes rang out at 1:31 a.m. Six straight hours of music, and that was just the first of two nights. [Rolling Stone]Bruce was actually there both nights (one of many possibly "filling in" for Eric Clapton, who canceled last minute on the second). Those in attendence on the 30th got to see U2, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith sing together on "Because the Night." (And U2 + Mick Jagger (another unannounced guest) + Fergie + Will.i.am sing "Gimme Shelter"...). Ray Davies, Lou Reed, and Ozzy Osbourne all performed with Metallica. Many played with Stevie Wonder. Full setlists below.
HBO will be airing four hours of highlights on Thanksgiving weekend.
(November 29th at 8PM ET).
Bruce's current tour wraps up November 22nd in Buffalo. He was at Giants Stadium earlier this fall, playing the last concerts ever there. U2 also played the venue for two nights in September, and will be back in Jersey in 2010 as part of their just-announced tour.
Set lists for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame shows are below...
