Guitarist Mick Taylor rejoined the Rolling Stones onstage in Los Angeles on Monday night (20May13) as the rockers returned to the Staples Center for their final California show "for a while".

The group kicked off its 50 & Counting tour at the venue earlier this month (May13) and have been up and down the state ever since.

Before heading off to Canada for the next leg of their North American tour, Mick Jagger and his bandmates hit the home of The Los Angeles Lakers and teased fans by suggesting it would be their last California hurrah.

The frontman told devotees the show would be the band's "last gig in California" before adding, "for a while anyway", suggesting the Stones might not be planning to hang up their tour gear just yet.

Taylor, who performed with the group on their five-show 50th anniversary dates last year (12), returned to the stage with his old bandmates to perform a string of hits, including Can't You Hear Me Knocking.
