NEW YORK -- The Rolling Stones brought their 50th anniversary tour to New York City and show no signs that it's their swan song.
The Stones rocked the stage in Brooklyn's Barclays Center for 2 1/2 hours Saturday night. It was their first U.S. show on a mini-tour marking the mind-boggling half century milestone as a rock band.
The sense of nostalgia was heightened by projects on a huge screen of footage of the early days, when the Stones looked like teenagers. At one point, Jagger reminisced about the first time the band played New York -- in 1964.
The will also play two shows in Newark, NJ on Dec. 13 and 15.
And just before that, the Stones will join a veritable who's who of British rock royalty and U.S. superstars at the blockbuster 12-12-12 Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden.
