First it was Katy Perry, then it was country mega-star Carrie Underwood, and now another female pop star has joined the legendary rock n’ roll group on their “50 and Counting” world tour.
Taylor Swift joined Mick Jagger and the rest of the crew last night at the United Center for the Stones’ third and final stop in Chicago. Swift lent her voice for “As Tears Go By,” one of the first songs ever written by Keith Richards and Jagger back in 1964. The tune became famous when Marianne Faithfull recorded it and a year later, the Stones did for their album December’s Children (And Everybody’s).
Now, Mick Jagger has reportedly been pulling for Adele to sing with him at his Hyde Park shows on the last leg of their tour this July.
Adele has not signed on yet, and she hasn’t performed since the Grammys, probably due to the birth of her son.
According to a statement in The Sun, Mick is stubborn, and sources say, “At the minute it’s 50/50 that she’ll do it, but Mick is quietly confident he can pull it off. They want to make the Hyde Park shows a highlight of their tour, and her appearing would make it really special.”
Mick does recognize that he can’t always get what he wants, as the same source says “Gaga, Paloma [Faith] and Flo would all do well in the Hyde Park shows, but Adele is the big prize this summer.”
