Stones-18 and Out for 50?
We’ve been speculating for months about what the Rolling Stones would do for a tour to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2013 after their very successful run in Brooklyn, New York and London late in 2012.
According to the latest word being whispered in industry and fan circles is that the band will be hitting the road sometime in the spring — with Examiner.com posting that the newly formed Virgin Live and Paul Dainty’s Dainty Group will handle publicizing the shows. Pollstar reported that the still-unannounced shows would reportedly be limited to 18 concerts “including multiple nights in select cities.”
Kasabian’s Sergio “Serge” Pizzorno may have given out the first clue as to where one of those shows might take place when he spoke MTV News about his band’s spot at this summer’s Glastonbury Festival: “I hope ours is the most talked about performance of the weekend, but that would be a miracle because the Rolling Stones are playing Glastonbury.” Ron Wood has gone on record as saying he’s personally pushing the band to play the annual UK festival.
