The Rolling Stones have a busy week ahead of them. 

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards will be taking some time in between NYC-area concert dates and a Hurricane Sandy benefit concert appearance to present the Top Ten List on Late Show With David Letterman on Tuesday, Dec. 11.

In a press release, CBS noted one relatively surprising detail about the appearance: It will mark the first time the pair has stopped by Late Show. They aren't the only British rock legends David Letterman will have welcomed this month for the first time. The surviving members of Led Zeppelin -- Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones -- were on Dec 3. They and Letterman had received Kennedy Center Honors the night before.

Also on Friday, the Stones were announced as an addition to the star-studded roster of a benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy relief on Dec. 12 at Madison Square Garden. They also will be performing Dec. 8 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and Dec. 13 and 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. 

The venerable rock band is currently on a 50th anniversary mini-tour, appropriately titled 50 & Counting, that was timed to the release of greatest hits compilation album GRRR!.
