VIDEO: The Rolling Stones launch 50th Anniversary shows in London

The Rolling Stones kicked off their "50 & Counting" shows Sunday in their hometown of London before a packed 02 Arena crowd of 20,000 fans.

The Stones delivered a 2-hour plus set with hits taken from every decade of their career, as well as “One More Shot” and “Doom And Gloom” – two new songs from their “GRRR!” greatest hits collection.

Special guests included former bandmates Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor plus guitar hero Jeff Beck and R&B superstar Mary J. Blige.

Wyman joined the Stones for “It’s Only Rock N’ Roll” and “Honky Tonk Women”, while Taylor stepped in for “Midnight Rambler.” Beck was on stage for “Going Down” and Blige handled vocal duties on “Gimme Shelter.”

The Stones will play a second night at The O2 Arena London on Thursday, November 29 before heading across the Atlantic for three shows: New York’s Barclay Center on December 8, and the Prudential Center in Newark NJ on December 13 and 15.

The final show will be telecast live via pay-per-view at 9pm ET. The pay-per-view entitled “One More Shot” will be distributed by WWE.
