ROLLING STONES TO PLAY NEWARK NEW JERSEY TWO NIGHTS IN DEC. 2012. THE 13TH AND 15TH
UPDATE….20/10/2012…MICK JAGGAR SAYS IF THE FOUR SHOWS ARE GREAT THE STONES WILL ADD MORE TO THE TOUR ! YEAH BABY ! WEST COAST, VANCOUVER, B.C. I HOPE ! C’MON MICK !
The Prudential Center in Newark just outside of New York is the lucky North American destination. Two other shows are also scheduled in London’s O2 Arena Nov. 25 and 29th.
I have been lucky to have seen Mick and the boys back in 1989, Steel Wheels, 1994 Voodoo Lounge and 1998 at Bridges To Babylon Tours. After Bassist Bill Wyman left after Steel Wheels Tour, 1992. The Stones didn’t retire. More Tours and the last in 2007 made them $500 Million Dollars.
I am greatly broken hearted they can’t come to The West Coast. Their Tours are legendary and are great for local economies. The new age of concert organizers have the VIP Ticket sellers raking in the dough. The cost of these tickets will be prohibitive and the fact there are only 2 shows in North America just makes the Tickets unattainable for the middle class person. It will be The Elite. The rich and famous who will go to the shows.
Being on The West Coast, In Vancouver, B.C. makes going to the U.S. shows that much more impossible. I’m sure wealthy fans here will get their tickets , hotel, airfare and for them it would be a drop in the bucket.
So, Alas I say farewell to Mick and the boys. Congratulations on your 50th anniversary. I just wish I could celebrate it with you.
I still have Steel Wheels, Voodoo Lounge and Bridges To Babylon.
