Florence Welch Joins The Rolling Stones For “Gimme Shelter”

by (@zaragolden)

Last night, as advertised, Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine dropped in on The Rolling Stones to help at their “50 and Counting” anniversary tour stop in London. The pop powerhouse blew new wind to the song the Stones’ half-century old hit, and then blew us and Mick Jagger (who thanked her when it was done, raving also “I loved that!”) away. We’re surprised there weren’t actual sparks flying between she and Jagger when they got into a walk/wail-off at the last round of “It’s just a kiss away’s.” And fortunate for us, some camera-wielding concert goer was kind enough to upload the moment so all the rest of us might also get to enjoy it on this Friday!

The Stones’ “50 and Counting” tour lands stateside next week for shows in Brooklyn and New Jersey.
