The Rolling Stones kick off their run of American gigs

The Rolling Stones played the first of their three American shows on Saturday (December 8).

Fresh from two outstanding performances in London last month, the legendary group kicked off their gig at the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn with "Get Off Of My Cloud" before launching into the Lennon/McCartney-penned "I Wanna Be Your Man".

After "Last Time", the band were joined onstage, just like they were on the first night of their O2 Arena gigs, by Mary J Blige who performed "Gimme Shelter" – you can watch fan-filmed footage of the performance below.

In a hit-laden set, which was different from their gigs in London, the band were also joined by blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr during "Going Down" and the Trinity Wall Street Choir on "You Can't Always Get What You Want". They finished their rapturously-received set with "I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)".

The Rolling Stones will perform two dates at The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on December 13 and 15. The group are also in the line-up for the Hurricane Sandy relief concert in New York.
