Exclusive: Rolling Stones Concert Tix Will Go on Sale This Weekend
Showbiz 411 ^ | October 10, 2012 | Roger Friedman

Posted on 10/10/2012 6:29:54 PM PDT by WXRGina

Exclusive: The Rolling Stones will indeed play 50th anniversary concerts. And I am told they will go on sale this weekend–maybe as soon as Friday. Ticketmaster will handle the sales. All hell is going to break loose, too. What I’m told: confirmed dates are November 26 and 27 at the O2 Arena in London. December 15th and 16th are set for the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The dates for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn are coming, but not agreed to yet. This column was first to break the Prudential Center news two weeks ago. We were also first to tell you about Barclays and O2. So what’s been the delay? Money, money, money. The Stones want it. Richard Branson is putting up $25 million to make all this happen with concert promoter Paul Dainty. Once all the London-New York shows are sold, look for more dates. You know that Los Angeles and a few other big cities are guaranteed in 2013.

Never had any use for them. They’re very instrumental in making rock-n-roll look filthy. Not sure why anyone cares about them anymore. They’ve always bordered on being disgusting. That’s my opinion. So there!

Fifty years on three (sometimes) four chords.

I can't understand it.

The Kenyan must go.

Just as amazing, I was at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut last month in which Bob Dylan was giving a concert (and releasing an album of all new material).

Now Bob Dylan has also been recording since 1962 so he has been in the music business for 50 years also.

I wonder where L'il Wayne will be in 50 years.

The old stuff is awesome, especially Mick’s singing. Age won’t be denied though.

Wish they’d write some new stuff, old age has interesting facets.

Sittin’ here listening to “For No Reason At All In C” by Scott Robinson. Quiet home. Family. Cheap beer. FR. Libs in meltdown.

Paying out the wazoo for Stones tickets and experiencing public mayhem in person has no appeal on this end.

Yeah, and three and four chords are the foundation of rock and roll and blues.

The wife and I saw them last in 2006 and they were still kicking butt and enjoying themselves on stage. Quoting Bob Seger, “all Chuck’s children are playing his licks”, so crank them amps and rock on boys.

Their new single “Doom & Gloom” is coming out tomorrow morning, but, strangely enough, it will not have a B-side as I understand it. Have you ever seen a one sided 45?

Now that I'm 60, I begin to get some of those 60s lyrics, like "Go Away Dandelions" and "Sunshine Superman".

Dandelions:
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion

He's thinking about suicide (ie dandelions cover a graveyard). No secrets after death. Death gives us final knowledge. Please go away, thoughts of suicide.

Sunshine Superman:
Sunshine came softly through my a-window today
Could've tripped out easy a-but I've a-changed my ways

Suicide again. Thinking about jumping out the window over her. Sunshine gave him courage. Saved his life.

If we made the same tired ‘ageist’ jokes about B.B. King, they’d call us, and we’d call ourselves “RACIST” which is a crime graver than murder in this country in this age, don’t kid yourself!

Forgot to explain this line. He's so unsure of her feeling for him that he doesn't know whether she will laugh or cry when she gets the news.

Some stupid article about Dylan that a friend sent me a link today associated “You can’t always get what you want” phrase with Zimmy, and my old friend to my shock somehow didn’t know or forgot about the real source of it.

Re Have you ever seen a one-sided 45? I think I saw one in the last 50’s. Probably a PROMO or the guy forgot to put the label on, or I was drinking something strong.

I'm pretty sure he passed on years ago and is simply an embalmed cyborg now.

On the other hand, Gene Autry was sorry he ever met Sunshine.

Forty five years ago I would have attended for sure.But I have no interest in seeing grandfathers dancing around like clowns.R&R is to be performed by people in their 20’s and maybe 30’s,not guys pushing 70.Love the Stones of ‘65...have no use for today's Stones.

“Boy, are there some good arguments on that! :-) “

-

It was the sanctimony and hypocrisy of The Beatles that drove me nuts. That whole Maharishi phase and love,peace,love.

The Stones just let it all hang out.

> Have you ever seen a one sided 45?

Yes, many times, a lifetime ago when I worked radio. A lot of DJ copies were one-sided, or sometimes mono on one side and stereo on the other or the full-length track on one side and the edited for airplay version on the other. But...

They're going to release a record? Who even has a turntable any more?
