The Rolling Stones announce 2013 ’50 and Counting’ North American Tour

Rolling Stones 2012After much anticipation, The Rolling Stones have officially announced the first set of dates for their 2013 ’50 and Counting’ North American Tour. Fans have been in limbo since December when the band concluded the first run of it’s 50th Anniversary Tour. Now, the wait is over, and the celebration continues. The Stones ’50 and Counting’ Tour kicks off in early May in Los Angeles for a 9-date trek that concludes in my neck of the woods on June 18 in Philadelphia, PA. From there, the Stones will head back to the U.K. for the Glastonbury Festival on June 29, followed by at London’s Hyde Park on July 6 and 13. More dates could follow around the globe, as Australian dates and more U.S. dates are rumored.

In 2012, The Rolling Stones only ranked #33 out of 50 on the Top Grossing Tours list, and only pulled in 35.5 million…but they onlyRolling Stones live 2012 played 6 shows. The Stones mounted a mini-tour to celebrate their 50th anniversary as a band. The celebration kicked off in Paris with a warm-up show at the La Trabendo Night Club . Then, two shows at London’s O2 Arena in November, a stop at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, and a two-night stand at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The Stones also were a late addition to the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy, a benefit show at Madison Square Garden in New York City that also included fellow top-grossers Bruce Springsteen, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Roger Waters, and Paul McCartney. The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest recording artists of all-time. Throughout their incredible 50-year career, their music remains timeless. The band has released over 100 singles, more than 20 studio albums, and sold over 200 million records worldwide. If this is indeed the band’s final curtain call, it will surely be one for the ages. – by Matt Bishop
