And when the Dead reunited in 2009, also after five years, it was $95 for any seat in the house. Heads screamed and hollered about that pricing. Sure seems a lot more reasonable now, don'it? (Mmmmmm....donut)

Keith Richards hinted at more Rolling Stones shows to come in a chat with the BBC's Matt Everitt as the band continues to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
"You know I wouldn't be surprised," said Richards, when asked if the Stones would be playing more than just the four shows announced yesterday. "Nobody's actually given a heads up on that, but I don't think that this band is gonna wind up all of this for four shows. I think they want to do something for the end of the year, and I think next year probably looks like it's on."

The band is currently set to take the stage at Lodnon's O2 Arena on November 25th and 29th, while on December 13th and 15th they'll hop across the pond to play Newark's Prudential Center.
Shows next year would be even more apt, as Richards points out that the Stones consider next year the group's real 50th birthday because 1963 marks the year Charlie Watts joined the group. "This year to us is a conception," joked Richards, "next year is the birth, but everybody around the world has decided a conception's worth a celebration."

When asked about the possibility of the band playing England's famed Glastonbury festival, Richards quipped with a laugh, "On a good day if the weather's fine, that's an interesting proposition." He added, "I think the band wants to get these four gigs under their belt and think about next year after that. But anything's possible with this band, you know."

You are aware that none of the Rolling Stones are in any way shape or form hurting for cash, right?
These shows are not about any of them actually needing cash. :wink:

I wonder what they need to break even, what they will take home as profit, and who helped set the prices. I'm sure if I was their age and going out on the hard road, I'd want to make it worth my while, too.

Nope it doesn't seem reasonable now, as I didn't think it was reasonable then, and didn't pay that for any of the shows I saw that spring.

The Rolling Stones have uploaded a photo of a yellow legal pad with the titles of 22 songs written on it to their official Twitter account. It appears to be in Mick Jagger's handwriting. The band is rehearsing in Europe right now for their upcoming four-date tour, and this is clearly a list of songs they're rehearsing. Here's the list as it appears on the page, along with six things we've learned from it.

"She's So Cold"
"You Got Me Rocking"
"All Down the Line"
"Respectable"
"Tumbling Dice"
"Honky Tonk Woman"
"Beast of Burden"
"Wild Horses"
"Can't Always Get"
"It's All Over Now"
"Lady Jane"
"Rt. 66"
"Little Red Rooster"
"Miss You"
"Not Fade Away"
"She's So Cold"
"Start Me"
"Sweet Va"
"Worried About You"
"Paint It Black"
"The Last Time"
"Ruby Tuesday"
"Midnight Rambler"

twitter.com/RollingStones/…

— The Rolling Stones (@RollingStones) October 15, 2012
1. Some real deep cuts might surface on this tour. The Stones haven't performed "Lady Jane" since the Sixties, and "Route 66," "Little Red Rooster," "Not Fade Away" and "The Last Time" are also not songs they trot out very often.

2. They aren't neglecting the Eighties. That work is much better than its reputation suggests, and it's good to see they're at least considering "She's So Cold" and "Worried About You" for the tour. (They even list "She's So Cold" twice.)

3. There's no escape from "You Got Me Rocking." The track is definitely one of the better songs from 1994's Voodoo Lounge, but it's been played live an absurd number of times over the last two decades. Hey Mick, it's time to move on. Reminds us of Bob Dylan's fixation with "Silvio" during the Nineties.

4. As always, the show will be focused on the hits. Jagger says he hates to look at the audience and see blank faces, so the Stones' set lists are always chock-full of giant hits. The fact they're bothering to even rehearse "Tumbling Dice," "Honky Tonk Woman," "Miss You" and "Start Me Up" suggests those songs are very likely to surface yet again. They don't list "Satisfaction," "Jumping Jack Flash" and "It's Only Rock and Roll" here, but that's probably because they could all play those songs in their sleep.

5. This is clearly not going to be the running order of the show. It would be cool if they opened with "She's So Cold" and played it again halfway through the show, skipping many of their signature songs – but that ain't gonna happen.

6. This is a bit more pre-Beggars Banquet songs than we usually see. Often they only break out "Satisfaction," "Paint It Black" and a tiny handful more from this period, but there are six of them here. Hopefully they're trying to acknowledge their entire history here, as opposed to just 1968 to 1981.

the steel wheels show at Jones beach in 1989 was one of the most amazing shows I have ever seen in my life.

Mick actually climbed up the side scaffolding on the stage when Sympathy for the Devil started, . the whole audience was like 'Where the F is he?" (Mick) and then when we all noticed he was all the way up there, the crowd went wild...

Epic. I will never forget it. <3

The Rolling Stones announced a surprise "warm-up gig" in Paris, and within an hour the Champs Elysees was swarming with fans hoping to get satisfaction with one of the 350 tickets for the Thursday night show.

The €15 ($19.5) tickets, announced on the Rolling Stones Twitter account, came with strings attached: No more than two per person, names printed on them and IDs required at the door at the show intended as a prep for the band's 50th anniversary arena shows in London and Newark, New Jersey.

Guitarist Ronnie Wood had said in an interview with NME this week that the Stones could play several small clubs, possibly under the name the Cockroaches, an alias they've used before.

The group has not played together live in five years.

Bill and Mick Taylor will sit in with the band!!

Guitarist Mick Taylor and bassist Bill Wyman, the two surviving ex-members of The Rolling Stones, will guest with the reactivated band later this year. Keith Richards confirmed the news in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. Taylor and Wyman will each join The Rolling Stones’ current lineup for a few songs at both London’s 02 Arena and Newark, NJ’s Prudential Center. “[Current Stones bassist] Darryl Jones and Bill can talk about songs they want to step in and out of,” Richards told the magazine. The guitarist also hints that guests like Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck may join the Stones for their second Prudential Center show, which will be broadcast on pay-per-view.

Classic Stones bassist Wyman played with the group from 1963-1993. More recently, he reunited with his former band to record a tribute to founding Stones piano player Ian Stewart that was released in 2011. Taylor only played with the Stones from late 1969-1974 but he contributed to some of the band’s most successful and influential recordings. Stewart and founding guitarist Brian Jones, the band’s other two core ex-members, died in 1985 and 1969, respectively.

Members of the Stones’ longtime backing band like keyboardist Chuck Leavell and saxophonist Bobby Keys will also be part of the group’s current lineup.
