Rolling Stones Joined By Keith Urban And Gwen Stefani At Tour Kick Off

(Radio.com) The Rolling Stones rocked Los Angeles' Staples Center on Friday (May 3) with superstar guests and enduring hits at the opening U.S. date of the band's 50th anniversary tour, 50 and Counting.

As the opening guitar strains of "Wild Horses" played, No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani strolled onstage. While some older concert goers relied on their younger counterparts to identify the singer with the long blond tresses and classic Stones tour t-shirt, Stefani and Jagger connected for the classic tune from the Stones' 1971 album, Sticky Fingers.

The show didn't lag for a moment, as country star Keith Urban appeared onstage to add blistering guitar licks to "Respectable" from the Stones' 1978 full-length Some Girls while drummer Charlie Watts' rock-solid beat set the pace.

The cavalcade of special guests continued. Former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor joined the band for an extended version of "Midnight Rambler," with Taylor slipped into an easy groove as Richards and lead guitarist Ron Wood exchanged fiery solos and big smiles between them. more on this story
