The Rolling Stones’ Reunion Shows LIkely To Expand Beyond Brooklyn and London

The Rolling Stones may play more than four shows this year. Though the group has not officially confirmed any dates, Keith Richards has revealed that the Stones will play two shows at London’s O2 Arena this November as well as two dates at Brooklyn, NY’s Barclays Center before the year is over. These shows will be part of the group’s extended 50th anniversary celebration. The group has not performed since 2007, though they recently recorded a pair of new tracks of the hits album GRRR! and rehearsed for a few days in New Jersey this summer.

Now, Stones saxophonist Bobby Keys tells Billboard the Stones will play more than four shows this year.

“[We are] gonna do some more concerts, starting in November with two in England and then a couple here in the States, then there’s a few added concerts after that,” he says. “Keith told me a couple months ago there was something in the wind and just be ready to go. I’m waiting for them to send me the plane ticket and the information, and then I’ll go.”

The Stones’ O2 dates will take place on November 26 and 27, according to an article in Billboard. The ‘World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band’ is also rumored to play the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on December 15 and 16.
