The Rolling Stones at the Barclays Center

MYFOXNY.COM -

Rock and roll legends the Rolling Stones are in Brooklyn Saturday night performing at the Barclays Center. 

So many excited fans came out Saturday night of all ages from all over the country and although the average age is about 68 years old, they probably won't be retiring anytime soon. 

They may be as old as most grandfathers, but the Rolling Stones still have more moves than guys half their ages.

Tonight the Rolling Stones hit Brooklyn's Barclays Center for their first of three U.S. shows on their "50 and counting" mini tour. 

That's right -- they've been playing for a mind boggling half century. 

"We're here for the Stones baby!" said one excited fan outside the Barclays Center. 

Thousands of fans of all ages came out Saturday night from the tri-state area and all over the country. Many of them have seen the rockers multiple times and they say it never gets old. 

Seeing the Stones cost fans some big bucks. An average ticket will cost you hundreds of dollars. 

"They were $800 a piece, I mean c'mon the Stones are worth it right?" added another fan displaying his pricey ticket.

Critics have said that members Mick, Keith, Ronnie, and Charlie should just retire already, but fans say they Stones still got it. 

One fan was asked if Mick Jagger was still hot?  

"Oh yeah! He's always, always hot!" said a happy fan.  

Clearly the stones are also hot commodities. Their last tour, Bigger Bang, raked in more than $500 million. They've sold more than 200 million records thanks to mega hits fans love to this day. 

The Stones perform in Brooklyn and then two shows in Newark at the Prudential Center on December 13th and 15th, aren't the only big dates on the agenda. Next week the Stones 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.

    Taxis come in yellow, green, black, and now... hot pink? They're called SheTaxis and they are from a cab service for women by women. (The cabs aren't actually pink, but drivers will carry pink pashminas.)The service is coming to New York this week. You could almost think of it as an all-female Uber.

    You've probably seen Airbnb commercials extolling the benefits of homeowners renting out their houses or apartments to out-of-town guests for a fee. Sharing is caring feel-good commercials.But housing activists say Airbnb is reducing available housing in New York City's increasingly expensive and shrinking housing market. They argue Airbnb is pushing thousands of apartments toward use as illegal hotels instead of affordable housing.
