The Rolling Stones jammed with Gary Clark, Jr. on a blues classic during the band’s July 7 show at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA.

Clark – who opened the evening with a solo set – returned to the stage for “Ride ‘Em On Down”, a 1930’s-era tune by Bukka White that has been covered by many artists through the years, including an appearance on the Stones’ 2016 album, “Blue & Lonesome.”

“Great to see you Gary!,” posted Keith Richards on social media alongside a backstage photo with the guitarist from earlier in the day. “Thank you for joining us on Ride’em on Down!”

The Boston-area show marked the fifth stop on the band’ No Filter tour, which sees the return of Mick Jagger to the concert stage following heart valve replacement surgery in April.

In sync with the trek’s launch in Chicago, IL on June 21, The Rolling Stones released an archival live package entitled “Bridges To Bremen.”

The project presents a complete show from the final leg of the band’s 1997-98 “Bridges To Babylon” year-long tour in support of the album, which achieved Platinum and Gold status in multiple markets upon its original release in 1997.

“Bridges To Bremen” is available in multiple packages, including digital, DVD + 2CD, Blu-ray + 2CD, triple vinyl and digital audio.
