The first of the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary concerts which occurred last Sunday was a star studded event. The band was joined on stage by Mary J. Blige and guitar legend Jeff Beck as well as former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.

Now, the band's upcoming show at the London O2 on Sunday will also feature some special guests. Specifically, the band will be joined by Florence and the Machine front woman Florence Welch, as well as Eric Clapton. NME has reproduced the following from an un-named source, originally quoted in the Mirror newspaper:

"Mary J Blige did the female vocal part for the first show which blew the crowd away. But Florence is determined to raise the bar even higher. It will be an incredible moment. Eric is also taking part at some point, which will be historic too."

Last week's show saw the band being fined £200,000 for overruning a Sunday night curfew. The group arrived on stage half an hour late, ultimately dropping "Satisfaction" from their set.

    That would be cool, if Florence's voice didn't made me cringe. But actually, cool, because of Clapton.
    I would love to hear Florence do Gimme Shelter. And need I saw more about the awesomeness of clapton!
