Florence And The Machine's Florence Welch is reportedly set to join The Rolling Stones at their second gig at London's O2 arena tomorrow night (November 29).

According to The Mirror, Welch will perform a duet with Mick Jagger for 'Gimme Shelter' for the band's second sell-out London show, which was performed by Mary J Blige on Sunday (November 25). According to the paper, Eric Clapton will also appear onstage too.

An un-named source is quoted as saying: "Mary J Blige did the female vocal part for the first show which blew the crowd away. But Florence is determined to raise the bar even higher. It will be an incredible moment. Eric is also taking part at some point, which will be historic too."

Sunday's gig saw previously announced guests and former members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor take to the stage, with the band also joined by Mary J Blige and rocker Jeff Beck, who played guitar on 1969’s ‘I’m Going Down’. Bassist Wyman played with the Stones from 1962 until 1992 while guitarist Taylor was with them from 1969 to 1974. It was the first time the two had played with the band since that time.

The Rolling Stones will play the O2 Arena on Thursday (November 29). They will also perform at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on December 8 and at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on December 13 and 15.
