Rolling Stones Dates Next Week?
Word has it The Rolling Stones will announce their tour at the end of the month and that it will be promoted by AEG after a deal with Australian promoter Paul Dainty and Virgin Music fell through. Billboard Biz says the deal fell apart after Dainty and Virgin failed to come to financial terms with the band on a guarantee believed to be in the ballpark of $80 million. It was Dainty and Virgin who reportedly paid the Stones $25 million for their five shows in November in London, Brooklyn and Newark, New Jersey. Those shows grossed just under $39 million.
