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.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
