Legendary rock and roll band, The Rolling Stones, announced Monday on their website and on YouTube that they would return to the stage this year with four concerts in Britain and the United States. The shows will be held at London’s O2 Arena on November 25 and 29 and at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on December 13 and 15.
The show will mark the band’s 50th anniversary of its first gig and the first time in five years that the Stones have performed live together. Mick Jagger exclaimed, “Everybody loves a celebration, and London and New York are two good places to do it in!”
The Stones made a name for themselves selling more than 200 million records throughout their time together. Their hits such as “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Street Fighting Man” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” have granted them endless recognition and one of the biggest fan bases of all time. In recent years, their focus has been touring. Their last global tour, “A Bigger Bang,” earned over $500 million between 2005 and 2007.
“Is everybody ready? Are you ready? Yeah, we’re ready. You must have guessed this was coming,” Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood said in the video clip. “Surely you didn’t think we weren’t gonna do this.”
Be sure to get tickets here before they’re gone.
