Prior to kicking off major tours, the Rolling Stones like to play an intimate club date to get a feel for an audience once again. Eleven days before the 2005 Bigger Bang tour began the rockers piled into the Phoenix Concert Theater in Toronto to play new music and test a few covers on fans. That show is now available for download at the band's archive website.
We know for certain there will be four Rolling Stones performances this year, but that doesn't mean you might not see the band playing somewhere other than London's O2 Arena or New Jersey's Prudential Center. Guitarist Ron Wood just stated that there might be some warm-up dates using one of the band's fake names.
One of the great myths in rock history is the rivalry between the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. In fact, despite their sonic differences, the groups were good friends and often timed their releases so that they wouldn't coincide with each other.
Earlier today (Oct. 15), the Rolling Stones announced that they will perform four concerts -- two in London and two in Newark, N.J. -- in the coming months. Those who are unable to make those shows can now rest easy. The final show of the '50 and Counting' mini-tour will be shown live on pay-per-view in the United States.
You gotta give it to the Rolling Stones; these guys never stop touring. And it looks like that hasn't changed, because the band's guitarist, Keith Richards, revealed that the group has a couple of live shows lined up in both London and New York.
The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year by releasing an in-depth documentary titled 'Crossfire Hurricane,' and now fans can get an early look at the film in a new trailer that's been released online.
Keith Richards has recently been allowing fans to submit questions for him to answer on his website. The audio answers provide interesting insight into the rocker's ideas and philosophies, and give fans a chance to hear stories by one of the more interesting rock voices.
Two weeks ago, we learned that the Rolling Stones were accepting pre-orders for highly collectible, limited-edition vinyl sets of 'The Brussels Affair,' a much-bootlegged show from 1973. Now the band will release two-LP/DVD/CD versions of two other concerts on Sept. 11: 'Some Girls: Live in Texas ‘78' and 'Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981.' Both have been released on DVD and CD within the past year.
The Rolling Stones‘ Mick Jagger hinted earlier this year that “autumn” would be the next time he thought we’d see the band onstage. It now looks as though that prediction is pretty spot on, as Billboard reports that the band are in the process of lining up four performances later this year.
One of my favorite Keith Richards riffs!
Every weekday around 9:30, we pull one out of the attic. In case you are new,the Attic is a mythical place where, in the 70′s, we were “enlightened” by great music…and other stuff
