Following The Rolling Stones’ release of their new single, “Doom and Gloom,” from their 50th anniversary album GRRR!, the internet was abuzz with hopeful speculation about a possible tour. The band has heeded their call to action, officially stating that they plan on hitting the road once more to crank out their hits like, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Paint It Black,” and “Angie.” However, as of yet they aren’t quite preparing for a worldwide or lengthy tour. So far they have only announced four dates. Fans of the iconic UK rock quartet will have to make the trek to either London’s O2 Arena on November 25th and 29th or Newark’s Prudential Center on December 13th or 15th. Still, the ellipses in their tour’s title, “50 and Counting…” suggest a possibility of more to come. Already band members are once again getting the rumor mills churning, coyly alluding to the potential for extra dates.
The Rolling Stones is still going strong with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood. This definitely makes all the difference. Tickets to the shows are likely going to sell out quick and for lot of money. True, it’s only rock and roll, but we can’t help but like it.
