Florence Welch Performs "Gimme Shelter" With Rolling Stones at London Gig

Florence Welch joined the Rolling Stones on stage last night during their O2 arena show in London to help the band perform their hit “Gimme Shelter,” and she was somewhat of a show-stealer.

Donning what looks like a velvet burgundy suit, Welch strutted onto stage and gets right in the face of Jagger to begin the electric performance—at one point, she even impersonates the famous Jagger strut with direction from Jagger himself. Eric Clapton made a guest appearance at the same gig.

The Rolling Stones will continue with their 50th anniversary shows in America this December, first performing in Brooklyn, N.Y., before heading Newark N.J., for their final two performances.

Watch fan footage of the performance of Welch and the Rolling Stones below.
