India Not Into Stones

THE ROLLING STONES have failed to sell out their first concerts in India - because Indian kids aren't interested.

The band are due to play in Bangalore on Friday (4APR03) and Bombay (Mumbai) on Monday (6APR03) as part of their LICKS WORLD TOUR.

They have brought forward their Indian tour by almost a week after cancelling concerts in Hong Kong because of the SARS illness sweeping the Far East.

Despite initial reports of great excitement about the Indian concerts and sold-out tours of Australia and America, large numbers of tickets for both shows remain unsold.

AVINASH, a singer-guitarist with a rock band called ANGELDUST, says audiences were not keen on Stones songs.

He says, "They only want to hear music by METALLICA, DEEP PURPLE, THE DOORS and DIRE STRAITS.

"I do not possess a single cassette of Rolling Stones and do not know any of their songs."
