Exclusive Update: Rolling Stones Concert Tix Will Go on Sale Next Week
Exclusive UPDATE: The Rolling Stones will indeed play a few 50th anniversary concerts. And I am told they will go on sale next week— a press release will go out on Monday I am told. Ticketmaster will handle the sales. All hell is going to break loose, too. This is an update from my earlier post about sales this weekend. What’s the hold up? “Not everything is done,” my source says. Even the documentary, “Crossfire Hurricane,” is not completely ready for the London Film Festival debut next week. So be patient.

What I’m told: confirmed dates are the last week of November at the O2 Arena in London. Approximately December 15th and 16th– or thereabouts– are set for the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The dates for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn are coming, but not agreed to yet.
This column was first to break the Prudential Center news two weeks ago. We were also first to tell you about Barclays and O2.
So what’s been the delay? Money, money, money. The Stones want it. Richard Branson is putting up $25 million to make all this happen with the concert promoter Paul Dainty.
Once all the London-New York shows are sold, look for more dates. You know that Los Angeles and a few other big cities are guaranteed in 2013. It’s only rock and roll, but we like it!
Meantime, HBO has a premiere scheduled for the Stones documentary “Crossfire Hurricane” by Brett Morgan set for November 13th in New York.
Keep refreshing, stay tuned…And PS, everyone is very healthy…
I HAVE SEEN THE STONES EVERY TIME THEY CAME AROUND SINCE 1981. I AM FROM NJ AND EVEN FLEW TO VEGAS TO SEE THEM. IN 199 I HAD AN INTERCRANIAL HEMORRAGE 5 DAYS AFTER CHILDBIRTH & WAS IN A COMA FOR 57 DAYS. MY HUSBAND PLAYED STONES MUSIC TO ME EVERY DAY. ONE DAY I WOKE UP OUT OF MY COMA SINGING A STONES SONG. THIS IS A TRUE STORY!!!
I AM PARALYZED AND WHEELCHAIR BOUND & I HOPE I CAN GET TICKETS TO THIS SHOW. THE STONES ARE THE BEST. THEY ARE THE WORLD’S GREATEST ROCK & ROLL BAND. I HAVE HEIR LOGO TATOOED ON MY CHEST!!!
Anyone that would say anytjhing derogatory has not seen the Stones perform. They were are still the greated rock and roll band in history. I would like to see other prople their age still rock and enjoy life as they do!
1981 would have been the Tatto You tour, Steel Wheels was around 1989. Look guys, I saw them three times on the last tour and if they still got it, why question it? They still sellout every venue when they tour so the naysayers here can have their opinions (although skewed). the fact remians…..the Stones are still relevant and loved the world over, obviously!
As for teenage music…..HARDLY! The BS coming out of the music industry today has a shelf life of maybe 6 months…. at best and in no way can compare to the talent and record of the Rolling Stones!!. The Stones music is still played on radios and included on movie soundtracks everyday. Gimme Shelter is the music on the trailer for the new Denzel Washington movie “Flight”.
Ain’t nuttin’ like a Stones show, period! End of story!
I have seen the best of the best, and the Stones still blow all away!
The fact that Mick is in better shape than most 20-year-old Americans says it all……..yes, they can still do it! I was amazed on the last tour to see Keef crouched on the stage with his acoustic guitar, sounding great, with osteoarthritic fingers and all………..simply, amazing!! Charlie……impeccable! Ronnie and his slide…….you got me rockin’!! Would love to see Bill again…….hope it happens……and the potentiality of Mick Taylor sittin’ in on the tour, etc…….WOW!!!!!!! Supreme, consumate performers. To all of you puttin’ these boys down……………well, needless to say, you are clueless!! Go see a show! It is worth the investment!!
I assure you this is not true. Keith looks great, his health is terrific. He’s great. Don’t know where you heard this.
It doesn’t matter that the Stones are playing songs they wrote when younger. None of their songs were silly pop songs. In fact, songs like “Satisfaction” and “The Last Time,” their first original singles, are amazingly mature and, well, cynical. Before that they played mostly blues, which isn’t exactly know as “teenager music.” Everything they did from Beggar’s Banquet” on out is clearly the work of mature men and it’s mostly what they play on tour. No one criticized Muddy Waters for playing blues in his ’60s so why should the Stone’s be criticized for doing essentially the same thing? They are the best rock n rll band of all time and still put out great songs now and again. Keep on rocking Mick, Keef, aned Charlie, the three original Stones. And Ronnie Wood too, who has been with them longer than Brian Jones and Mick taylor combined.
This tour is pretty “iffy” for Keith. He is in bad health, regardless of the PR, his health is a great concern, and many around him think he will not do well on this tour. Special precautions are being taken to ensure his travel condition and Mick took months to convince those around him that Keith would be well taken care of. Lets hope for the best, this is going to be the last tour for sure.
I love these old guys. Listening to them hit a few licks on acoustic would be just like sitting beside highway US 965 and hearing those 18 wheelers drag broken debris, drop loads of scrap iron and small rodents scurrying through the attic on a cold winter evening.
Yup, some old dudes who spent all they made and now are desperate for funds to continue their debauchery at a rather slower pace. Why would they abuse their fans with crap?
Were they ever artists, or just addicts?
Alright! Been a fan since the 70s and like many others am really looking forward to seeing them again. Keep on rolling!
I went to see them in 1981 on their “Steel Wheels” tour because they said it was going to be their last…
Rockers with walkers tour
“Gotta be Rock n Roll Music, If ya want to dance with me..”
Rock hard, live fast, and leave a beautiful corpse. Well two out of three ain’t bad.
cant the rest of the band tell mick NO? omg grow a pair
[…] to Showbiz 411, the Rolling Stones will do concerts […]
@jimmy figueroa: what a dumb comment. the greatest rock n roll band of all time and their songs are teenager songs?? wow,I guess you gotta keep listening to your raeggeton and bachata.
NOTHING is wrong with this picture. They STILL will rock, the set will be fabulous and the energy will be high as always. Give it to them, they deserve it..and they are all still fit and look like rock stars. Rock on Mick and the ‘boys’!
Why the old pic of them looking “youthful”?…Why not show them how they REALLY look today? No bias against aging seniors here…right?
Never too old for the Stones! They can still kick it and at my age of 63, I love them! They can still pack a concert hall and that’s all that matters!
@Jimmy…actually teenagers dont listen to the stones …try lady(iwanna)gag or justin bieber. It seems culturally ok when a blues or jazz artist plays there teenage songs at 70 but to you its taboo if the rock world does it. Double standards!
Besides your not going find many teenagers at that show, just 40+ folks respecting and enjoying there once “rock gods” before they fade into the history books.
Your normalcy bias against older men playing guitars is pathetic and you sound very jealous.You would have to live to 1000yrs old to get the p#ssy they have had in there career. BTW,have you slept with these guys? how do you know there manhood doesnt function?
Old men playing rock & roll; HOW BORING. WILL THEY HAVE TO CARRY KEITH RICHARDS OFF STAGE AGAIN ON A STRETCHER?
If BB Kind and Muddy Waters can play into their 70’s, then the Stones can certainly rock us into theirs. Jagger looks up to the task and the rest of the band can still deliver. Why not? I think it’s great.
It’s only rock & roll, but like it, love it, YES, we do!
isnt mick getting big social security checks?
If they can still rock at 70, power to’ em. It’s not the age but the fact that they haven’t made a truly memorable album since ’71’s Sticky Fingers. They will sell tickets but now they are an “event” rather than “the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band”. STROLLING BONES, indeed! For my money, I’d rather see the Led Zeppelin reunion, and will gladly settle for the blu-ray when it comes out. I just hope the audio is 7.1.
Yes!!! The Rolling Stones I love you! From the 1960’s to being in our 60’s-Let’s never stop! Rock And Roll!
Lets see.. seventy year old men…playing guitars and singing teenager songs…does anyone think that there is something wrong with this picture?
They would be great in ads for AARP, and viagra, lots of viagra and forest lawn
Guess I’ma-gunna have to ‘greaze-up’ the Ol’ wheelchair…. one last time? ;o)
