After recently celebrating their 50th anniversary, the Rolling Stones announced on Monday that they will embark on a new tour at the end of the year. Fans who would like to watch the famous band perform on stage again, can buy tickets to one of the four concerts that Rolling Stones will host in Newark, New Jersey and London.
Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary has made everyone nostalgic including the members of the band who announced their intentions to work on several other projects by the end of the year. However, it was only on Monday that the band released a statement expressing their plans to take part in a new tour in the last part of the year.
As usual, the good news is always followed by bad news. In this particular case, the bad news is that the legendary band will not perform all over the world; they will only host four concerts in cities like Newark, London and New Jersey.
Despite the success that Rolling Stones registered in the 70s with singles like “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, “Street Fighting Man” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, touring has been the only lucrative activity for the band in the past years. At the beginning of their career, the Rolling Stones managed to sell 200 million records, but their number diminished considerably since then. “A Bigger Bang”, their last global tour helped them cash in $500 million between 2005 and 2007. Given these circumstances, Rolling Stones decided it would be best to hold several other concerts before they withdraw from the music scene.
The dates of the concerts haven’t been released yet, but the spokesperson of the band will keep fans up to date with everything they need to know. The concerts will include some of the band’s famous songs, as well as new singles that the Rolling Stones members produced in 2012.
