THE ROLLING STONES ANNOUNCE FOUR ARENA SHOWS
The Rolling Stones have confirmed their long-awaited return to the stage with four arena shows in London and New Jersey. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood at last revealed their return to live work via a video message today (see below). Click here for tickets.
The legendary rockers 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, New Jersey, on December 13 and 15.
For these new shows, the band is promising an all-new, custom-built set design, with a stage based on the band’s tongue and lips logo, which will reach out into the crowd, 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 final Stones show, staged at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on December 15, telecast live via pay-per-view at 9pm EST. The pay-per-view entitled “One More Shot” will be distributed by WWE, the world’s pre-eminent provider of pay-per-view programming.
