The Rolling Stones have confirmed four live dates for later this year – two in the UK and two in the US – according to Billboard.
The publication claims the Stones will make their live return in November, with a pair of gigs at the O2 Arena in London and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn reported to be the locations.
A source has apparently told Billboard Virgin boss Richard Branson and Australian promoter Paul Dainty will organise the gigs, with the band being paid $25 million (£15.8 million) for the quartet of concerts.
The rumours come after almost a year of efforts on the part of Keith Richards to get his band back out on the road as they celebrate their 50th year. Mick Jagger appears to have warmed to the plans in recent months, and was pictured leaving a Paris recording studio earlier this week, fuelling suggestions a new album is also in the works for the legendary band.
And when speaking at the opening of the Rolling Stones: 50 photo exhibition in London recently, Jagger told the Evening Standard: “You will definitely be seeing us all together soon. It’s been great fun being back together and there are a lot of memories in here. I can’t believe it’s been 50 years. We’ve been hanging out together, seeing quite a bit of each other and we want to do some gigs.”Just Published:
