The Rolling Stones will announce their tour on Wednesday.
A post on their website says, “Five days and counting,” and we have confirmed that it will be the long-awaited tour announcement. But unlike their past announcements, which have featured lavish press conferences, there will be no spectacle.
The post on their website also includes a video of them performing “Doom and Gloom” last fall during one of their five shows in London; Newark, New Jersey; and Brooklyn, New York. “Doom and Gloom” is one of the two new songs on their recent hits collection, GRRR!
The only Stones show announced so far is England’s “Glastonbury” festival on June 29th, and that show’s promoter, Michael Eavis, says they’re not being paid an exorbitant amount to appear. He explains, “There’s a…standard price for the headliner. We get headliners for a tenth of the normal price. They’re not being paid very much. Headliners are always good to us because they want to do it. They get TV and huge record sales straight after the show.”
The question is: Will there be a Detroit date on the schedule? I don’t believe a Stones tour has ever missed the Motor City so stay tuned!
