Rolling Stones to Gather Moss Again

Rolling Stones to Gather Moss Again
Wednesday, May 04, 2005
By Roger Friedman

Brace yourselves — they're back!

The Rolling Stones are determined to recapture the title of World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band from pretenders to the throne U2.

I'm told they will announce a new album and tour next Tuesday in New York. A press conference/concert has been booked for midtown, possibly Bryant Park.

A publicist will only say: "It's at a very accessible place."

In the past, the Stones have performed on a flatbed truck on Fifth Avenue in NYC. But they've been upstaged in recent years by U2, who took a page from the Stones' book by rolling on their own truck across the Brooklyn Bridge to announce their current tour.

The tour is set to start in late summer and hit New York in September, right before Paul McCartney's tour blows through town. Shades of the old Beatles vs. Stones rivalry!

A new Stones album may also be announced Tuesday, making it their 407th since 1964, or at least it feels that way.

But seriously, none of that matters, as long as we get a full version of "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" and maybe Billy Preston as a surprise treat.

They'll at least make U2 look like a bunch of teen-agers because they're so freaking old.

Until they release a new album, they're a nostalgia act when they tour.

They are coming to Argentina too, it seems that at least 3 River Plate stadiums are ready to go here.
In Brazil they will play on Copacabana Beach, a month ago Lenny Kravitz did a show for 150,000 people there.

Here many rumoured/probably dates for the Stones tour:

I heard they were going to play the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, as well as a smaller place - The Palladium? I can't recall. Same week U2 is due in L.A. as well... I bet the tickets (again) will be double the face value for U2, but not double the entertainment value. Think I'm biased? Hmmmm

OK. I might even go see them at the Palladium.


If I didn't have to sell a kidney for tickets.

I think they qualify as a nostalgia act anyway since any new album is incidental. The vast majority of the people going to see them in concert are there for their old songs and don't give a damn about anything new from them.

I've already seen them twice, and god knows I love me some Keef, but I just can't justify spending the cash this time.

I'm looking forward to the new album, but I doubt I'll catch them on tour...it's just so expensive. Besides, I got to see them back on the Bridges To Babylon and No Security tours, so I'm not completely deprived.

when I saw them for the steel wheels tour in 89, it was the rolling stones plus 47 other people on stage.

u2 were already the greatest rock band back then.

That's just because everything you hear is actually live. With U2, half of what you hear is pre-recorded, which is kind of cheating.
