The Rolling Stones asked a high school band to perform with them on stage for their show in Las Vegas last night, although apparently not all of the Green Valley High School choir members who performed were entirely sure who Mick Jagger and company were.
The band, who are on their 50 And Counting world tour, got the choir to back them on the classic You Can’t Always Get What You Want on stage at MGM Grand Garden Arena. KLAS-TV reports that choir director Kim Ritzer thought the request was a joke until she found out a friend had recommended them, saying, “When I announced it to the kids, I think their parents were more excited than they were because some of them didn’t even know who The Rolling Stones were.”
Choir member Kyle Sorenson said, “I called my dad. He was screaming at me over the phone and said, ‘Are you kidding me?’. It was funny, and my mom told me – she said, ‘You better get an extra ticket or else I’ll come with a chaperone’. They’re beyond excited, and so am I.”
Senior Alex Miller has been cashing in on the cool points, saying, “It’s cool, like, a lot of my friends that are into The Rolling Stones are, like, ‘Can you get me tickets?’ And I’m like, ‘No. sorry. It’s an exclusive thing.’”
The Rolling Stones continue their world tour, but still are yet to announce any plans to come Down Under.
