Fifth Stones show announced

Gigs & Festivals

The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones have added a fifth date to their upcoming 50th anniversary celebrations, and will play the Barclays Center in New York, in addition to the Prudential Center in Newark and O2 Arena in London. The new date, on 8 Dec, will precede the Newark dates, but follow the London shows.

As Mick Jagger recently justified the astronomical ticket prices for the anniversary concerts by pointing out that the cost-per-show was higher when doing just a small number of gigs rather than a full world tour, perhaps now there’s a fifth show the band could refund a few pounds to existing ticket buyers, given there must be a slight economy of scale in adding an extra date?

Plus there are rumours that additional dates could as yet be added to the 50th anniversary shindig.
