The Rolling Stones rock MetLife Stadium ahead of Memorial Day weekend

The Rolling Stones sure know how to throw a Jersey Memorial Day weekend party.

Jokes, topical conversations, Jersey menu talk, and nearly two hours of some of the greatest songs in rock ‘n’ roll were on stage May 23 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

The Stones – whose members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are both 80 – have found that sweet spot where they don’t seem to take themselves too seriously yet are still a serious force for music. Renditions of “Paint it Black” and “Gimme Shelter” echoed throughout MetLife with ominous beauty. It was glorious and a little scary.

Mick Jagger will perform during the Rolling Stones concert on May 23 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

Chanel Hines, who will be performing the Rolling Stones’ first live appearance on the tour, raved about the female lead on “Gimme Shelter.”

The band got stronger as the night went on. Jagger sprinted 50 yards from the catwalk to the drum kit during “Honky Tonk Women” and didn’t seem to lose his breath.
