Home Celebrity Exclusive: Rolling Stones Dates In New York and London

The Rolling Stones have picked their dates for four 50th anniversary shows this fall: November 26 and 27 in London at the O2 Arena and December 6 and 7 in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center. Tickets will be roughly $500 apiece to offset the $25 million the group is being paid by Sir Richard Branson.

The shows follows an HBO documentary (which this column announced some months ago) plus a huge 50th anniversary photo book that collects all the best pictures of the group going back to 1962.

The Stones are not alone celebrating their 50th anniversary this fall. Barbra Streisand will precede them into the Barclays Center in October.

The Stones shows may be the beginning of a big worldwide farewell 50th anniversary tour. There may be an album of new material too.

Branson, I am told, was convinced by Mick Jagger to get into the live promotion business with Australian Paul Dainty. Jagger rejected offers from Live Nation, AEGLive and Michael Cohl, the producer who just settled his “Spider Man” lawsuits on Broadway with Julie Taymor.

Roger Friedman began his Showbiz411 column in April 2009 after 10 years with Fox News, where he created the Fox411 column. He wrote the Intelligencer column for NY Magazine in the mid 90s, reporting on the OJ Simpson trial, as well as for the real Parade magazine (when it was owned by Conde Nast), and has written for the New York Observer, Details, Vogue, Spin, the New York Times, NY Post, Washington Post, and NY Daily News among many publications. He is the writer and co-producer of "Only the Strong Survive," a selection of the Cannes, Sundance, and Telluride Film festivals, directed by DA Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.

  1. Mick, you prissy little twit, how dare you charge $500 for a fucking ticket. I hope Keef didn’t have anything to do with this BS, say it ain’t true Keef, please say it ain’t true.
