The Rolling Stones – Doom and Gloom | O2 Arena 25112012 Ageing rockers The Rolling Stones have celebrated 50 years in the industry by performing to a packed London crowd for the first time since 2007. The band, all in their 60s and 70s, took to the stage in front of 20000 screaming fans at the O2 Arena. Lead singer Sir Mick Jagger, 69, was joined by guitarists Keith Richards, 68, Ronnie Wood, 65, and drummer Charlie Watts, 71. It is the first time the band have been joined with former members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor for more than 20 years. They opened with I Want to be Your Man, with front man Jagger strutting around dressed in a silver blazer and trilby, before launching into Get Off of My Cloud. Tickets for the show, which comes ahead of a gig at the same venue on Thursday before three in the US next month, started at £106. Fans sitting in the "tongue" – the area at the foot of the lip-shaped stage – forked out an eye-watering £1140 per person. US soul diva Mary J Blige joined Jagger to sing the female lines of hit Gimme Shelter. Legendary rock guitarist Jeff Beck joined the four-piece to play Im Going Down. Tickets for both UK dates sold out within seven minutes last month.
