Rolling Stones 2012 Tour Tickets on Sale This Weekend?
The Rolling Stones are performing select dates in 2012 in celebration of their 50th anniversary, and tickets for several of the concerts will reportedly go on sale beginning this weekend.
Showbiz411 broke the news, reporting that the Stones will perform at London’s 02 Arena on Nov. 26 and 27, and the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. on Dec. 15 and 16. There are also dates pending for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., but the site reports that negotiations over money between the Stones, Richard Branson and concert promoter Paul Dainty have delayed announcing those dates.
Guitarist Keith Richards talked about the group’s rehearsal process in a recent interview. “Everybody relies upon their instincts,” he said. “Especially once you start working regularly together again. Because it pulls all the bits and pieces together, which when you’re not working and playing with the guys, dissipates, obviously; you’re not having that immediate contact.”
The legendary musicians should have no shortage of material to draw from for the upcoming shows; in addition to their decades of classics, the Rolling Stones are set to release two new songs as part of a greatest hits package titled ‘Grrr!’ on Nov. 13. They released a new single titled ‘Doom and Gloom‘ today (Oct. 11) via iTunes after premiering it on BBC Radio. The collection also features a new track titled ‘One More Shot.’
