Rolling Stones rock MetLife Stadium before Memorial Day weekend

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

Jokes, current affairs discussions, Jersey restaurant menu discussions and nearly two hours of some of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest songs were on stage May 23 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

The Stones – whose members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are both in their 80s – have found that sweet spot where they don’t seem to take themselves too seriously while remaining a dangerous musical force. Back-to-back renditions of “Paint it Black” and “Gimme Shelter” resonated through MetLife with eerie beauty. It was beautiful and a little scary.

Mick Jagger is featured during the Rolling Stones concert May 23 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

Chanelle Haynes, making her live debut with the Rolling Stones on this tour, absolutely sizzled as the female lead in “Gimme Shelter.”

The group grew stronger as the evening progressed. Jagger walked 50 yards from the podium to the drums during “Honky Tonk Women” and didn’t seem to lose any breath.
