Florence Welch To Sing 'Gimmie Shelter' With The Rolling Stones At London's O2 Arena?

The 'Shake It Off' singer is rumoured to be making an appearance with the rockers tomorrow night.
Florence Welch will apparently join The Rolling Stones on stage for the second night of their short O2 Arena residency in London this week.
The 'No Light No Light' singer is said to be performing the band's hit song 'Gimmie Shelter', with Eric Clapton also scheduled to be making an appearance on the night.
Mary J Blige joined the group during their first headline gig last Sunday (25th November) for a rendition of the track and the red-haired star is hoping to outdo her fellow female star, reports The Sun.
"Mary J Blige did the female vocal part for the first show which blew the crowd away," a source told the publication. "But Florence is determined to raise the bar even higher. It will be an incredible moment."
The singer is currently in the middle of a European tour with Florence & The Machine and faces a race against time to make the show.
"It is very, very tight indeed but it will definitely happen," the source added. "You would never in a million years turn down the opportunity to duet with Mick on such an iconic song."
The Rolling Stones' first show also them reunited with former members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor – the first time they've been together on stage in two decades.
The band have come under fire for the high ticket prices of the gigs – something which frontman Mick Jagger poked fun at last Sunday.
"Everybody all right there in the cheap seats? They're not really cheap though are they?" He told the 20,000 fans in attendance. "That's the trouble."
The Rolling Stones will perform the second of two shows at London's O2 Arena tomorrow (29th November) night and are strongly rumoured to be headline Glastonbury Festival 2013.
