The Rolling Stones are set to end their five show anniversary tour at The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The historic show will be telecast live via a pay-per-view event dubbed "One More Shot". Drummer Charlie Watts joked, saying money was the motivation, but then added: SOUNDBITE: Charlie Watts, The Rolling Stones, saying (English): "It's a way of getting it to a lot of other people I suppose." Joining the guys on stage will be New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen, pop star Lady Gaga and rock band The Black Keys. Jagger says while the lineup seems random, there was a science behind the selection. SOUNDBITE: Mick Jagger, The Rolling Stones, saying (English): "They're all Americans, we're doing it from America. They all represent different phases of American music. And they all want to do it." After just a two-city, five-show tour, the rockers say they're done. Even though the name of the tour, "50 and Counting" implies there's more to come, Jagger says it is simply a tease. SOUNDBITE: Mick Jagger, The Rolling Stones, saying (English): "I don't know if we are, but we'll see, you know what I mean, we'll see. Things have gone well, this is a sort of get out clause really. Cause if we had done shows and they hadn't really been really good then we would have been like, I don't want to do that. But it's been going really well." And it sounds like Ronnie Wood is hoping to keep the Stones rolling. SOUNDBITE: Ronnie Wood, The Rolling Stones, saying (English): "Once that big wheel starts rolling, which it is, it's going to be hard to stop." The concert will air at 9pm eastern standard time on cable, satellite and online.
