Mick Jagger Sparks Controversy With Comment At Sandy Relief Concert: ‘If It Rains In London, You’ve Got To Come Help Us’

NEW YORK (CBS New York/AP) – Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger irked some fans with an attempt at humor during Wednesday night’s 12-12-12 Concert For Sandy Relief at Madison Square Garden. 

During his set with The Stones, Jagger told the crowd that there should be a benefit show the next time it rains in London. 

“This has got to be the largest collection of old English musicians ever assembled in Madison Square Garden,” Jagger said. “But I’ve got to say, if it rains in London, you’ve got to come and help us, OK?”
