STONES DUST OFF CLASSICS AND PERFORM WITH
BONNIE RAITT AND JOHN FOGERTY AT HP PAVILION
We're now three shows into the 2013 portion of the The Rolling Stones' 50 and Counting Tour and the parade of guest
stars started at last year's performances has continued into the new year. Last night in
San Jose, The Stones welcomed fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Bonnie Raitt and John
Fogerty to perform with them at HP Pavilion.
Fogerty emerged four songs into the set to join the legendary rockers on guitar and vocals
for "It's All Over Now" - a tune written by The Womacks that The Rolling Stones recorded
in 1964 and served as the band's first #1 hit. A few songs later, Raitt came out to help
out The Stones on "Let It Bleed" which hadn't been performed since the group's last tour
in 2007. Last night also saw the
tour's first performances of "Bitch" and "No Expections," while once again the San Jose
University Choraliers augmented The Stones on "You Can't Always Get What You Want."
Much has been made by Stones fans about the band's decision to use former member Mick
Taylor on just one song, "Midnight Rambler," at the first two shows of the tour. In San
Jose, Taylor sat in on "Midnight Rambler" and then emerged for the evening's finale - "(I
Can't Get No) Satisfaction" - marking the first time this year he's played more than one
song at a show and the first time Taylor has played The Stones' signature tune since 1973.
Here's the setlist from The Rolling Stones' show last night in San Jose.
