Taylor Swift and Mick Jagger isn’t a combination that you think would work, but guess what: it does!
The Taylor Swift tour for her album 1989 stopped in Nashville, and she was joined by Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger as her surprise guest, Gossip Cop reports.
Before the legendary rocker came to the stage, Taylor, dressed in a skin-tight, black, leather jumpsuit, gave him a fitting introduction.
“He’s one of the greatest entertainers of all time. This person has been knighted for his achievements and contributions to music. The person I’m about to bring onstage has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his band the Rolling Stones … My friend Mick Jagger is here.”
Then the crowd went wild as the opening bars of “I Can’t No Satisfaction” started to play. Throughout the song, Mick and Taylor did his signature dance moves and pumped their fists in the air. When he was done slaying the concert stage, Mick gave her a kiss and left.
This Taylor Swift tour has become known for its slew of celebrity guest performances. Some of the “surprise” guests have included Fetty Wap, Selena Gomez, Julia Roberts, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette, Nick Jonas, Fifth Harmony, and many, many others.
Nashville holds a special place in her career. Years ago, whilst she lived in Nashville, Taylor Swift got her first record deal. Maybe that’s way she saved a guest performance by a legendary rock star like Mick Jagger for that city.
The night had a couple of other surprises, too. Taylor Swift and Leona Lewis joined forces on a duet. They sang Leona’s 2007 hit, “Bleeding Love.”
Mick Jagger and Taylor Swift have also recently been in the news together, but for a slightly different reason.
According to a report by industry tabulator Poll Star, the Rolling Stones’ tour grosses way more than Taylor Swift concert gigs per city. According to the report, published in the Miami Herald, Taylor Swift earns about $5 million per city, while the Rolling Stones earn about $8 million and are the highest earners. Not bad for some guys who are collectively 285 years old! Taylor Swift is 25.
The Rolling Stones aren’t the only 60s rock stars who are on the list of top earners from tours. Fleetwood Mac is in fourth place, with about $3 million per city.
Taylor Swift and her 1989 Tour show no signs of stopping– her next gig is in St Louis at the Scottrade Center.
