Taylor Swift Joins Rolling Stones Onstage in Chicago
Taylor Swift made a surprise appearance at The Rolling Stones' United Center concert in Chicago on Monday night. The country-gone-pop singer joined the rock legends on stage to perform the band's beloved ballad, “As Tears Go By.”
From the start, Mick Jagger admitted that they hadn’t played the song live in a long time and would need some special assistance. On cue, Swift sauntered onto the stage and was greeted by applause of approval. Swift’s addition certainly captured everyone’s attention, captivating an already mesmerized audience as she was twirled around the stage near Jagger.
The Rolling Stones have featured several celebrity guests on the "50 and Counting" tour, including Katy Perry, Dave Grohl and Tom Waits. Fans have also been given the opportunity to vote for song requests in advance of the show they attend.
The tour celebrates the group's 50th anniversary as a successfully functioning rock band. Monday night's show was the third and final concert in Chicago for this leg of the tour in North America.
