-- Ronnie Wood will be teaming up with the guitarist he replaced in The Rolling Stones, Mick Taylor, for a series of intimate club shows in New York City next month. A rep for The Cutting Room, a venue co-owned by Law and Order and Sex in the City star Chris Noth, tells ABC News Radio that the two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will be performing there on three nights -- November 7, 8 and 9.
The rep also reveals that Wood and Taylor will be backed by a band of local musicians that the club is helping put together. The gigs will take place several days after the rockers join forces for the finale of the 2013 edition of London's BluesFest. That concert, which is scheduled for November 1 at the famed Royal Albert Hall, will be a tribute to influential American blues artist Jimmy Reed.
In addition, the Cutting Room shows will happen just a few days before the November 11 arrival of The Rolling Stones' Sweet Summer Sun -- Hyde Park Live CD, DVD and Blu-ray. The releases feature performances from the band's two July 2013 concerts at the London Park. Wood and Taylor, of course, both played with The Stones at the shows.
