The Rolling Stones will perform with former members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor at their '50 and Counting' shows in London.
The legendary 'Brown Sugar' group will play their first comeback show at the city's The O2 venue on Sunday (25.11.12) and will welcome former guitarist Mick - who played with the band from 1968 to 1974 - and Bill, who left the group in 1993 to the stage.
The band - Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood - have promised a show packed with hits from their 50 year career, as well as "a few surprises."
Rumours they would perform with Bill have been circulating since Ronnie said he had been rehearsing with them earlier this year.
He said in July: "I saw him last week and he was in top form, rocking. We also did a rehearsal with him a few weeks ago. It's like he'd never been away."
The band will take to the stage at 8pm on Sunday, and will not have any support act. They will play a second show at The O2 next Thursday (29.11.12), before heading to the US, playing at the Barclay Center, New York City, on Saturday December 8 and the Prudential Center, New Jersey on December 13 and 15.
The group have also released a video to new track 'Doom and Gloom', taken from their recent compilation album 'GRRR!', starring Swedish actress 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' star Noomi Rapace. The clip was directed by Jonas Akerlund, who has previously made videos for Lady Gaga, Madonna and Britney Spears.
