Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and the Black Keys will appear with the Rolling Stones December 15th at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, as part of a concert that will be telecast live on pay-per-view as "One More Shot."

Inside the Rolling Stones' Reunion

"We're excited these extraordinary artists, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and the Black Keys, had agreed to help celebrate our 50th anniversary as we share the night live with our fans all over the world," the Stones said in a statement on the band's official app. "Now the fun begins of trying to figure out the best songs to perform together."

Gaga apparently didn't take much convincing: "He had me at 'Hello, it's Mick,'" she tweeted.

The show is the last of the band's three U.S. "50 and Counting" performances this month, following a pair of shows in London in November where guests included Jeff Beck and Mary J. Blige, and Eric Clapton and Florence Welch, respectively. The Stones performed this past Saturday with Blige and Gary Clark Jr. at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and the group also plays December 13th in Newark. There's been no word on special guests for that show. The Stones will also perform this week as part of the "12-12-12" concert to raise money for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
