NEW YORK (AP) -- The Rolling Stones brought their 50th anniversary tour to New York City and show no signs that it's their swan song.

The Stones -- average age 68, if you're counting -- rocked the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for 2 1/2 hours last night, their first U.S. show on a mini-tour marking the mind-boggling half century milestone as a rock band.

The sense of nostalgia was heightened by projections on a huge screen of footage of the early days, when the Stones looked like teenagers. At one point, Jagger reminisced about the first time the band played New York -- in 1964.

The band also will play two shows in Newark, N.J., on Dec. 13 and 15.

And just before that, the Stones will join a veritable who's who of British rock royalty and U.S. superstars at the blockbuster 12-12-12 Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden.
