Exclusive: Rolling Stones Will Kick off 18 Date US Tour In Los Angeles


EXCLUSIVE: Tomorrow morning comes the official announcement of the Rolling Stones US tour. I can tell you that the tour of arenas will kick off not in Canada, as we originally thought. But the real start is at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, for possibly two shows. The exact date won’t be announced tomorrow morning pending the Staples center sports schedule. But it will be in the first week of May. Then the tour hits the 18 biggest US markets– San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, Memphis, etc. No New York dates are included since no deal has been done yet there by AEG Live. Also the Stones may have saturated that market last winter. Not announced also tomorrow are the dates I told you about at London’s Hyde Park– likely July 6th and 13th. But May and June are Stones America all the way.
