JAGGER AND SWIFT DUET ON TOUR'S FIRST
"AS TEARS GO BY" IN CHICAGO
The Rolling Stones' 50 and Counting Tour continued last night at the
United Center for their third of three shows at the Chicago venue. Special guests included
Taylor Swift, who emerged seven songs into the Stones' set for the tour debut of "As Tears
Go By" and Mick Taylor who sat in on the tour's second version of "Sway" and his nightly
performances of "Midnight Rambler" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."
The Stones are getting a bit more adventurous with their guest spot song selections as
last night's "As Tears Go By" was the first version of the tune they've played since a
November 1, 2006 show at the Beacon Theatre in NYC. "As Tears Go By," which was written by
Jagger/Richards and former Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham, was originally recorded by
Marianne Faithfull in 1964 before The Stones put their on spin on it the following year.
Taylor's got pipes and did a nice job on the tune.
