Taylor Swift on The Rolling Stones: ‘It was the best moment ever’

The singer duetted with the legendary band in Chicago this month (June 3)

Taylor Swift has said that performing with The Rolling Stones was the best moment of her career.

The singer joined Mick Jagger onstage during the Chicago leg of the band’s current world tour on June 3 to sing their classic ‘As Tears Go By’.

“The whole band, they’re so welcoming and wonderful and approachable and all the things you would hope your heroes would be,” she told Access Hollywood. “It’s wonderful getting that phone call. Like, ‘Hey, would you like to go and play with The Rolling Stones?’ That is a bold, underlined, exclamation point ‘Yes’!”

She added: “[Mick and I] did this twirl in the dressing room when we were rehearsing, because we just started sorta kinda like dancing around the room and frolicking and it was really fun. So we decided to incorporate that into the actual performance… I really wanted to do the twirl – this one little twirl that we did – and that was pretty much the best moment ever.”

Earlier this week, it was revealed that The Rolling Stones will play for over two hours during their Glastonbury Festival headline set. The band, who will play Glastonbury for the first time on the Saturday of the festival, will play from 9:30pm to 11:45pm – a total of two hours and 15 minutes.

This year’s Glastonbury festival is to be live streamed for the first time with viewers able to watch different stages as they happen. The BBC will use the latest digital technology to allow viewers to choose from simultaneous live streams from all the major stages and has today (May 30) announced that over 250 hours of footage will be broadcast across the weekend.
