Rolling Stones London and New York venues, 2012 tour - The Latest Entertainment News Today


The Rolling Stones are set to play four concerts; two at London’s O2 Arena and two at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, according to Billboard!


Richard Branson and Australian Paul Dainty are said to be promoting the comeback gigs, with reports suggesting the Stones will be paid a staggering $25 million for the four shows. The aging British rockers have previously dismissed rumours about them celebrating the band’s 50th anniversary with a set of shows, but Keith Richards contradicted this by telling the BBC:

“We’re playing around with the idea and had a couple of rehearsals. We’ve got together, and it feels so good.

“There’s things in the works; I think it’s definitely happening. But when? I can’t say yet.”


Michael Cohl, who has produced many Rolling Stones tours including 1989’s Steel Wheels, also wouldn’t give anything away about a possible gig-based anniversary, saying:

“Nothing I know of.

“Not even off the record. On the record, off the record, it’s all the same. I got nothin’ today.”


It may be due to the simple fact that no-one is communicating with each other, because Don Was, who produced several Stones albums, admitted that:

“..they’re getting together, and there’s a number of plans on the table, but what they’ll do is still coming together.”


Whatever the reasons for agreeing to the gigs later this year, I would love to see them live!
