Rock Report: Rolling Stones Rehearsing 70 Songs For Shows
The Rolling Stones have rehearsed about 70 songs for their upcoming shows.
Thursday at the London premiere of their documentary Crossfire Hurricane, Mick Jagger told reporters, “Rehearsals are going very well. I said, ‘Look, we only need to do 30 [songs], we don’t need to do 70, but now we are doing 70. I don’t know if we will do them all.” Keith Richards seemed eager to perform in London and New York, adding, You know, we are looking forward to a great time. See, it’s a two-way thing. It’s to do with all these people and it’s to do with us, we will deliver all right — one love.”
Charlie Watts and Ron Wood were also on hand at the premiere.
The Stones have four shows already set — and Jagger hints more may be added. They kick things off November 25th at the O2 Arena in London. Their first U.S. date is December 13th at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
