The Rolling Stones Confirm 2013 Dates, Mick Taylor Will Serve as a Special Guest

The Rolling Stones have announced a series of 2013 dates as part of their 50 & Counting tour. The group will kick off their biggest tour since 2007 this May in Los Angeles at the STAPLES Center. (Date TBA pending NBA/NHL playoff schedules.) The tour debut will be followed by performances in Oakland, San Jose, Las Vegas, Anaheim, Toronto, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and London. As previously reported, the Stones will also perform at Glastonbury Festival in June.

“50 & Counting has been pretty amazing so far,” said Mick Jagger in a statement. “We did a few shows in London and New York last year…and had such a good time that we thought…let’s do some more. It’s a good show. Lots of the classic stuff everyone wants to hear…with a few little gems tucked in here and there. The stage is shaped like lips and goes off into the venue so I get to run around in the crowd. It’s great fun to be able to get that close to the audience.”

“From day one at rehearsals it sounded so fresh. You could tell that everybody was dying to get their teeth into it. It was like…open the gates…let us out!” said Keith Richards. “Cause man, it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people.”

The Rolling Stones take their 50 & Counting tour across the USA and Canada. Tickets for Oakland, San Jose, Toronto and Chicago go on sale beginning Monday, April 8 at 10AM local time and will be available at

Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning April 5 at 10AM local time through Citi’s Private Pass Program. For complete presale details visit

Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-74, will be a special guest throughout the tour.

The Stones’ Hyde Park concert takes place almost 44 years to the day since the Stones first played the outdoor space and on the anniversary weekend of the band’s first performance. Support acts for Hyde Park are The Vaccines, The Temper Trap and Gary Clark Jr.

The Rolling Stones’ Hyde Park concert on July 5, 1969 is widely acknowledged as one of the most significant moments in modern music history. As well as seeing the live debut of Taylor, the concert became a tribute to founder member Brian Jones, who tragically passed away two days prior.

The stage design for the tour is based on the band’s ubiquitous tongue and lips logo, which extends out into the crowd, allowing the Stones to interact directly with their audience. Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.

The ticket prices for this tour will be ludicrous. See this tour on youtube and spend your money on bands that could really use the support.

Won’t be attending this how I’m more interested it another British bands tour instead of these overpriced geriatrics. Bring on the Sabbath dates, that’s the real tour of the summer.

enough already.

$623 apiece for high end seats after service fees is a tad pricey for an oldies act. Anyway, that’s my humble opinion.

Michael Couteter April 5, 2013, 21:54:17

New Orleans!!! Come on iDown…

Rojan April 8, 2013, 15:37:08

The only reason I’m going it Mick Taylor is going to be there whose chops are in decent shape -No, Mick Taylor, I wouldn’t be there.

BOC April 11, 2013, 10:54:37

Did you say $623???!!!! Wow, that is DAMN expensive! That comes with free beer and parking I assume?

I’d love to see Mick Taylor but I am not going to spend that kind of money. I’ll check out the DVD’s when they come out. The Mick Taylor era was some of the best rock ever made.

seen them 10 times best live act since 1975 to 2006 at the old meadowland sta. too old jfk in philly to the garden in ny great to have all 3 guitars better than aerosmith graet live the best band ever

I have been able to pay $1200.00 to see the Stones but I am not in that category anymore. Paying that much at the MGM and still having VIP seats in front of me, very disappointing…I have been purchasing DVD’s or Videos of the Stone live in concert and enjoying it much more at my home. Can’t wait to get the live from Hyde Park concert.
