The Rolling Stones announced on Monday that they’ll be playing a few shows for their 50th anniversary, titling the tour 50 & Counting…The Rolling Stones Live. This is the first time that the full band has played together since a three night stand at London’s O2 Arena in 2007. They will return to the O2 arena for two nights on November 25th and 29th, then travel to the Newark Prudential Center in Newark, NJ for the remaining two on December 13th & 15th. The tour closely follows the release of their compilation album GRRR!, scheduled to be released November 12th. GRRR! will also feature two new songs, “Doom and Gloom” and “One More Shot”.
The Stones will have an exciting new stage that will stretch into the crow, featuring the famous tongue and lips logo. Their website adds that there will be “integral video screens and effects enhancing the sort of high-octane adventure for which the band’s concerts have been famous for decades.” The band is also working with Virgin Live and Richard Branson for the live performance, who first started working with them decades ago, in an attempt to “[put] the fan’s experience right at the heart of every show they promote.”
Although the shows will be highly priced, the Stones always seem to make it worth it. Mick Jagger hints at “maybe a few friends joining” as well, in case you weren’t excited enough.
