Reports: The Rolling Stones to tour the U.S. first half of this year
'Fewer than 20' dates are planned
The rumor mill has been buzzing with reports of a possible Rolling Stones tour in 2013 and now it looks like that tour is indeed going to happen, and it's going to happen soon.
According to Rolling Stone and Billboard magazines, the rock icons will perform "fewer than 20" shows in the United States during the first half of this year. The tour dates and venues have yet to be announced (as has the actual tour) but news of the Stones touring is not a surprise.
Last year the band played a handful of shows in New York and a few gigs in London as part of their 50th anniversary. Billboard reports the band's five 2012 concerts grossed a total of $38,687,010 and sold 73,702 tickets. The financial success of the shows almost guaranteed the band's return to the road.
Whenever The Stones are mentioned, the most popular response is.. their old age, nursing home tours sponsored by Geritol, they need to quit.. you get the picture. But, whenever the old Blues guys like B.B. King and Buddy Guy are mentioned, the response is.. it's really great that they are still out there performing shows. The Rolling Stones took their name from the Muddy Waters song "Rollin' Stone" as a blues band in the beginning. The Stones keep rolling. It's in their DNA.. if you don't know why, after 50 years, they still do it.. you'll never get it.

This is not an ad I need help from people. Can I get , news coverage? My name is Daniel R. Waters and my award ($250,000 for uncontrollable seizures and Tardive dyskinesia) from Seroquel/Astra Zeneca law suit was stolen from me by my lawyer who represented me. I wrote the Texas Bar who said he's done nothing wrong by taking my money then I wrote to the Texas Gov. to complain of the Bar, and he never wrote back then I called the cops to file a crim. suit for theft over $10,000 (Felony in Texas) but they said "it's civil, we can't help" that was a lie!. Then I called my lawyers ins. Co. and they said "We'll look into it", never heard from them. Then I asked the D.A. of Corpus Christy, TX. to help and all she said was you don't have enough evidence, even though I have a signed consent form, 2 years of Verizon phone bills, and emails of use talking about when I would get the award and two witness's and I don't have enough evidence? How is that? I know my story can actually help people with important things. Anyone who would like to help me can write to (imoldschool72 @ hotmail.com)
Saw them 4 years ago. Still Rockin Hard and Still Given what you want. How many bands are there that can say weve been here together doing it right? Not many. When it comes to Rock n Roll Legends they are at the top. They are already considered to be one of the best and will influence music in the years to come. When we are old (maybe there already) and gettin ready to hit it we will be hearing new musicians say how much the Stones influenced them. If I have the chance I'll be there, in the front row, with my kids and grandkids rockin hard and showing them what true Rock n Roll is all about.
