The Rolling Stones rocks Brooklyn
Fifty years since their first London jam sessions, the Rolling Stones kicked off the US leg of a brief anniversary tour with a vibrant show in New York on Saturday that belied their years — wrinkles and nostalgia aside.

Drummers wearing gorilla masks warmed up the crowd packed into Brooklyn’s Barclays Center as black-clad women swung their long tresses in rhythm. Mick Jagger pranced, shimmied and howled his way through the two-and-a-half hour show, pausing to reminisce about the band’s history and its first New York concert at Carnegie Hall in 1964.

The biggest controversy ahead of Saturday’s show was the price of seats — up to $800, and as much as 10 times that amount on websites offering last-minute tickets.
