October 15, 2012 Leave a CommentThe Rolling Stones are beginning their 50th anniversary celebration with two concerts in London and two in New Jersey. And frontman Mick Jagger says there could be more to come.
The Stones will play the O2 Arena in London on Nov. 25 and 29, before crossing the Atlantic to perform at the Prudential Center in Newark, on Dec. 13 and 15.
“Sorry to keep you all hanging around but the waiting is over,” guitarist Keith Richards said in a statement, referring to months of rumors and gossip in the music press about an anniversary tour.
“I’ve always said the best place for rock and roll is on the stage and the same is true for the Stones,” he added.
The group will perform on a stage designed around the band’s trademark tongue and lips logo, and organizers have promised a high-tech live experience.
During an interview on the BBC shortly before the concerts were confirmed, Jagger suggested that the four dates could be a prelude to a longer tour.

The Rolling Stones have released their first new song in seven years. It’s titled Doom and Gloom, and it’s one of the two new tracks from their new album, GRRR! Greatest Hits, due for release a month from now.
The BBC premiered the hard-rocking tune this morning. It’s reminiscent of Jumping Jack Flash and Gimme Shelter with a 21st century theme:
Doom and Gloom was recorded in Paris a few months ago, along with a second new song, One More Shot, which hasn’t been released.
Earlier this week, guitarist Keith Richards revealed the Stones have been booked for concerts in New York or London, though he didn’t say when. The band’s sax player, Bobby Keys, says the shows will take place next month. But there’s been no official confirmation.

The hints are now flowing at a steady pace – the Rolling Stones are advising fans to stand by for some big news… perhaps a new record and/or a 50th anniversary concert.
The latest teaser appears on the group’s Facebook page and points to a mobile phone app. It pictures a growling cat whose eyes blink, with “Start Me Up” playing and the message “Keep Your Eyes Peeled.”
At that time, Jagger told a British newspaper the Stones would perform live together this fall. And just before that, Keith Richards told Rolling Stone magazine that he was looking forward to writing songs again with Jagger and returning to the studio.
So stay tuned…
