Exclusive: Rolling Stones Will Play Prudential Center in Newark


Exclusive: The Rolling Stones still have not sorted out their issues with the O2 Arena in London and Barclays Center in Brooklyn. But now I’m hearing they will play December 16th and 17th at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Weird, huh? Why not just give into Madison Square Garden. The politics of concert promotions is too much for me to figure out. It’s still with Paul Dainty of Australia and Richard Branson introducing Virgin Live. The Barclays dates of December 6 and 7 will be worked out, I am told.  It’s only rock and roll, but we like it! Hey, you know what? This will be the shortest announcement-sell through in history at this point.
