The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger joked that he got the subway with Jay-Z to the first of their New York gigs last night (December 8).

The singer referenced a clip, taken from Jay-Z's forthcoming documentary, of the rapper talking to an old lady while on the subway to The Barclays Arena in Brooklyn, early on in their 23-song set.

"It's great to be here in Brooklyn, in this great new arena," said Jagger. "We rode the subway here, I sat next to a guy named Jay Zed…I mean Jay-Z."

Fresh from two outstanding performances in London last month, the legendary group kicked off their gig at the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn with 'Get Off Of My Cloud' before launching into the Lennon/McCartney-penned 'I Wanna Be Your Man'.

After 'The Last Time', the band were joined onstage, just like they were on the first night of their O2 Arena gigs, by Mary J Blige who performed 'Gimme Shelter' – you can watch fan-filmed footage of the performance below.

In a hit-laden set the band were also joined by blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr during 'Going Down' and the Trinity Wall Street Choir on 'You Can't Always Get What You Want'. They finished with 'I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)'.

The Rolling Stones will perform two dates at The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on December 13 and 15. The group are also in the line-up for the Hurricane Sandy relief concert in New York.
