The Rolling Stones were honored at Carnegie Hall Tuesday night with an all-star tribute show that featured nearly two dozen artists -- from Art Garfunkel to Jackson Browne and Peaches -- singing some of The Stones greatest hits from their "Hot Rocks" compilation album.

None of The Stones made the trip to Carnegie Hall, despite rumors that Keith Richards would attend.

While much of the recent focus on The Stones has been on the decades-long rift between Mick Jagger and Richards, the focus of Tuesday night's tribute show was very much on the legacy of The Stones and their music.

Marianne Faithfull took the Carnegie Hall stage to perform her breakthrough 1964 single, "As Tears Go By," which was the first song ever written by Richards and Jagger.

Italian singer Jovanotti opened the show with members of TV On The Radio and a youth choir, singing the 1969 hit "You Can't Always Get What You Want." Actress-singer Juliette Lewis gave a "sassy" rendition of "Satisfaction," Billboard reports.

The Rolling Stones' last tour together, 2005's "A Bigger Bang," was the highest-grossing tour of all time before being topped by U2's 2009-2011 tour, 360.

However, The Rolling Stones will not tour to mark their 50th anniversary this year. The anniversary tour has reportedly been pushed back to 2013.

In 2010, Jagger recorded a new version of "Plundered My Soul" for the "Exile on Main St." re-release. Of course, he also released a new album with his supergroup, SuperHeavy, last year.

Over the years, frontman Jagger has been a constant source of musical inspiration for popular and indie artists alike. Ke$ha sings about kicking her suitors "to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger," in her breakthrough hit, "Tik Tok." Meanwhile, Maroon 5's Adam Levine and pop-diva Christina Aguilera released a pop hit crooning their desire for "Moves Like Jagger."

Look back at some of Jagger's most memorable moments and career highlights with The Rolling Stones below.
