IS EVERYBODY READY?
LADIES & GENTLEMEN…THE ROLLING STONES RETURN TO LIVE ACTION WITH SPECTACULAR ARENA SHOWS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC

Ladies and Gentlemen they are back! The most eagerly anticipated concerts of 2012 are announced today as the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band, The Rolling Stones, confirm their long awaited return to the stage with four spectacular arena shows in London and New York. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood at last revealed their return to live work via a video message today at www.youtube.com/user/therollingstones.

As the crowning glory of their on-going 50th anniversary celebrations, the rock icons will play to thousands of fans at London’s O2 Arena on November 25 and 29, and then across the ocean to perform at the Prudential Center, Newark, near New York, on December 13 and 15.

All ticketing information is available at www.rollingstones.com.

These sensational live shows will be the first opportunity for audiences to see the Rolling Stones perform on stage for more than five years. They will treat their generations of fans in a must-see, heart-pumping celebration of era-defining tracks such as Gimme Shelter, Paint It Black, Jumping Jack Flash, Tumbling Dice, It’s Only Rock and Roll, plus a few surprises and countless other classics from GRRR!, the multi-format compilation RS50 album coming out in November marking the Stones’ astonishing five decades at the top.

Mick Jagger commented, “Everybody loves a celebration, and London and New York are two good places to do it in!”

Keith Richards said, ”Sorry to keep you all hanging around but the waiting is over. I’ve always said the best place for rock and roll is on the stage and the same is true for the Stones. I’m here with Mick, Charlie and Ronnie and everything is rocking. See you very soon!"

The Rolling Stones have always been at the forefront of technical innovation in their live appearances, and these dates will reaffirm their place on the cutting edge of concert technology. These 50th anniversary performances will see the band working once again with their acclaimed, long time collaborators, set designer Mark Fisher and lighting director Patrick Woodroffe.

The new shows will be another groundbreaking visual landmark in Stones history. Fans can look forward to an all-new, custom-built set design, with a stage based on the band’s ubiquitous and celebrated tongue and lips logo, which will reach out into the crowd and become a truly must see and hear experience, with integral video screens and effects enhancing the sort of high-octane adventure for which the band’s concerts have been famous for decades. The 2012 concerts will mark the first time that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have performed together as a band since three acclaimed nights at London’s O2 Arena, in 2007.

The Rolling Stones live shows will also mark the launch of a new venture in global touring - Virgin Live. Virgin Live sees the coming together of two globally respected brands - Dainty Group and Virgin Group - and promises to shake up live touring by putting the fan’s experience right at the heart of every show they promote. Richard Branson and Paul Dainty’s history with the Rolling Stones spans five decades - so it is apt that these shows, which celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary - marks them joining forces for the first time as Virgin Live to promote the greatest band there has ever been.

Paul Dainty said “I’ve worked with the Rolling Stones for many years and I still get a buzz every time I see them live, these four shows are without doubt a must-see event. I am extremely excited about this collaboration with Virgin. There will be a lot more to say about Virgin Live soon but, for now, it’s all about the Stones…”

Richard Branson added: "Today marks the beginning of Virgin Live and what a beginning! In the future Virgin Live plans to make a real difference to how fans experience, interact and enjoy live events - Virgin Live gigs will be truly people driven. It’s great to join forces with Dainty Group to launch Virgin Live with the Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary shows. Who would have believed, that a relationship with the band that started in the Sixties, would still be going strong five decades later with us working together again on these amazing shows."

In celebration of five decades, The Rolling Stones will release the GRRR! album on 12 / 13 November, a Greatest Hits collection which includes two new songs ‘Doom and Gloom’ and ‘One More Shot’, recorded recently in Paris, marking the first new recordings from the band since their 2005 album A Bigger Bang. A new film, ‘Crossfire Hurricane’, directed by Brett Morgen, chronicling the key periods of the Stones’ career, will receive its worldwide premiere on 18 October at the London Film Festival and will be simultaneously screened in 250 cinemas across UK and Ireland. Crossfire Hurricane will premiere in the U.S. at the HBO Premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York on 13 November. Crossfire Hurricane will air on HBO in the U.S on 15 November, and broadcast on BBC Two in the UK the same month. Additionally, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City will host “The Rolling Stones: 50 Years on Film,” a comprehensive film retrospective that chronicles the band from the mid-1960s until today. This exhibition will be open 15 November through 2 December.
Also partnering with Dainty Group is global production company Endemol who will co-manage the international digital rights to the Rolling Stones “50 and Counting” shows.

Tim Hincks, President of Endemol Group said: "We are extremely proud to be partnering with the world’s greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll band and with the Dainty Group. "50 and Counting" is set to be a phenomenal global celebration of the Rolling Stones and we’ll soon be announcing further plans to make it an interactive experience for fans like no other."

This partnership between Endemol and Dainty Group will see the final Stones show, staged at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on December 15, telecast live via pay-per-view at 9pm ET. The pay-per-view entitled “One More Shot” will be distributed by WWE, the world’s pre-eminent provider of pay-per-view programming. Further details of the partnership will be revealed shortly.

WWE Chairman/CEO Vince McMahon said: "WWE is ecstatic to bring The Rolling Stones into your living room, live on Pay-Per-View for "One More Shot," the last date of their 50th anniversary shows."

Very disappointed to see this going to Prudential Center. Parking in that area sucks, and the arena isnt all that. As of last week they said they were still in negotiations with the Barclays Center, but I'm not hearing any mention of that now. Guess its not happening. No way theyre expanding the tour either. The fact that this is actually happening in their 50th anniversary year is a miracle. They dont want to do extensive touring anymore.

Either way, none of you are getting in unless you know someone. I dont even think I'm gonna attempt to buy these, theyre gonna sell out so fast (going off of past Stones onsale dates).

There's a large parking gage right behind the Pru, and the area is teaming with cops after shows, and Newark Penn Station is a very short and safe walk.

That said the ticket prices will keep me out.

Yes I know. I've been there, which is why I know the parking situation. On-the-street parking is impossible to find and the garages are a disaster to get out of.

Disappointed to not see Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman involved in some capacity. I was holding out hope that with the 50th Anniversary (and Taylor's involvement in finishing the bonus track for the Exile anniversary CD release) that they might be part of it, even if they didn't replace any of the other core 4.

In the video promo for the shows Jagger says "maybe a few friends joing us". Could be Taylor or Wyman.

I do love the Stones but, having seen them 6 times, will pass. Great band but I will enjoy the CDs and the memories and save my $100-plus for a shOw that offers more jamming and less greatest hits...

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards says the band have no intention of charging “over the bloody top” for their reunion gig tickets – even though prices range up to £950 per pass.

The band confirmed their long-anticipated 50th anniversary shows in London and New Jersey, revealing a string of access costs starting at £90 plus booking fee, making the cheapest entry £106. The price of a standard seat is £406. Once surcharges are added to the top-flight VIP hospitality package it will cost £1140.

Members of the Stones’ fan club will be offered cheaper tickets, the band have confirmed – but only standing spaces will be sold.

It’s been suggested the Stones will pocket £16m when they play London’s O2 Arena on November 25 and 26, followed by New Jersey’s Prudential Center on December 13 and 15. That could mean each of the four bandmates receiving £1m each per show.

But while he insists he wants costs to be kept low, Richards admits he doesn’t know what kind of figures that might entail.

He tells the BBC: “I haven’t looked at the figures. Numbers can get greatly exaggerated. But £16m sounds about right to us.

“I’m a bit out of the loop with showbiz – I just want to do some shows and I don’t want to charge over the bloody top.”

The guitarist is convinced there’s more to come after the Stones appear to support new greatest-hits compilation Grrr!, which also includes new track Doom and Gloom and One More Shot. But he hints that, after the anniversary project is complete, the band will bow out.

“Nobody has given us a heads-up,” says Richards, “But this band isn’t going to wind up with four shows. Next year looks like it’s on.”

They’ve been rumoured to have been booked for the 2013 Glastonbury festival. The guitarist comments: “On a good day, if the weather’s fine, that’s an interesting proposition.

“The band wants to get these four gigs under their belt, then think about next year after that. Anything is possible with this band.”

Are these guys worth their price of admission? Never seen the Stones live so I'm curious if the prices they've charged for the past decade or two are worth the price it. Are they tight and crisp live? Any improv occur at a Stones show? Do they play 3-3.5 hour shows? Just wondering.

They dont improv and they dont play 3 hour shows. Typically play 19-song sets, it's a couple of hours.

Thanks for the reply....Seems like a lot of dough for a couple hour show. But if they're good and you're a Stones fan what are you to do? I guess I would hope that since these guys certainly don't need the money that they'd keep the prices more affordable. But this is show biz and the promoters need to make money too....But around 5 million per show seems a bit extreme to me.

They were real good when I saw them a decade ago but I thought they were overpriced then so there is no way I would pony up for this. Probably won't even do the pay per view unless it's really inexpensive which I doubt.
