Lady Gaga recently revealed her excitement at an invitation to perform with the Rolling Stones this coming weekend in New Jersey.

She isn’t the only guest who has been asked to join the band on stage.

The Stones are on a roll with special guests at their “50 and Counting” concerts, and the list just keeps growing. The band has just announced that in addition to Gaga, Bruce Springsteen and The Black Keys will guest at the mini-tour’s final show on Saturday (December 15) at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

“We’re excited these extraordinary artists, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and the Black Keys, have agreed to help celebrate our 50th Anniversary as we share the night live with our fans all over the world,” the Stones said on their official website. “Now the fun begins of trying to figure out the best songs to perform together.”

If the band’s recent shows are any indication, Gaga could be dueting “Gimme Shelter” with Jagger, as the tour’s two other female guests – Mary J. Blige and Florence Welch – both have. As for Springsteen, he’s covered Stones songs like early single “The Last Time” in his shows, so perhaps that’s an indication of his direction. The bluesy, fuzzy swagger of the Black Keys would fit in with much of the Stones’ classic material, so that’s practically toss-up.

It’s little surprise that the Stones would nab such epic forces in the music world for the show that’s being broadcast via pay-per-view on cable/satellite worldwide starting at 9 p.m. ET. The TV special, which is also available via web/mobile streaming, is titled One More Shot and produced by GRAMMY producer Ken Ehrlich. E! will air a pre-show for the show starting at 8 p.m. ET on December 15th, live from the Prudential Center.

The band played Brooklyn’s new Barclays Center this weekend, where Jagger referred to Jay-Z as “Jay Zed.”
