Gary Clark Jr. to join The Rolling Stones in Boston

, Staff

Gary Clark Jr. will join The Rolling Stones tonight at the TD Garden in Boston as part of the legendary rockers’ “50 & Counting” tour stop. The band, who has hosted a special guest on almost every show this tour, made the announcement on Twitter yesterday.

Tonight will mark Clark’s third time playing with The Rolling Stones. Last December, the Texas-bred guitar virtuoso joined the band on Freddie King’s “Going Down” at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and again with John Mayer on the same song at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The band has reportedly been fans of Clark since frontman Mick Jagger first heard him perform at the White House last year.

The Rolling Stones have invited an eclectic array of special guests to join them on stage for this tour, from Tom Waits to Taylor Swift, Bonnie Raitt to Dave Grohl and most recently Arcade Fire’s Win Butler in Montreal. See the full lists of guest appearances below.

A limited number of tickets for tonight’s show, as well as Friday’s at the TD Garden, remain available through Ticketmaster and range in price from $85 to $597.50.
