Eric Clapton and Florence Welch join the Rolling Stones in concert

The Rolling Stones were joined onstage by Florence Welch and Eric Clapton on Thursday in the second of two London shows celebrating the band's 50th anniversary.

Bing: Rolling Stones fined for breaking curfew

A video featuring Johnny Depp, the Who guitarist Pete Townshend and Iggy Pop talking about the rockers kicked off the show at the O2 Arena. Pop joked of the band, "We'd never seen people with teeth like that. And skin like that. Ugh! ... The sound of Keith's guitar, it was like being hit with a dead mackerel."

Frontman Mick Jagger referenced the fact that their set broke a local curfew during their first London show last Sunday, costing the band $160,000 in fines. He also took the opportunity to joke about the astronomical ticket prices some fans paid to attend the concert, telling the crowd, "We're more relaxed tonight. We'll get to play the whole thing. We had to pay 100,000 pounds because we went on too long. That's like ... 10 seats!"

Florence + the Machine frontwoman Welch joined Jagger for "Gimme Shelter," and guitar legend Eric Clapton also took to the stage, playing blues guitar on the song "Champagne and Reefer."

Beck the first night, then Clapton. Great guests! Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman....great they are back. The whole thing is a good tribute, but not relevant for current music. Way too much for tickets too.
