Rolling Stones - The Rolling Stones To Make Comeback In London And Brooklyn

The Rolling Stones are set to play four gigs; two at London's O2 Arena and two at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, reports Billboard.
Richard Branson and Australian Paul Dainty will promote, with reports suggesting the Stones will be paid $25 million for the four shows. The aging British rockers have previously quashed rumours about them celebrating the band's 50th anniversary with a set of shows, but Keith Richards refuelled such talk when talking to the Bbc. "We're playing around with the idea and had a couple of rehearsals," he said. "We've got together, and it feels so good." The 68-year-old guitarist added: "There's things in the works; I think it's definitely happening. But when? I can't say yet." Michael Cohl who has produced many Rolling Stones tours, including 1989's Steel Wheels wouldn't give anything away about a possible gig-based anniversary. "Nothing I know of," he said. "Not even off the record. On the record, off the record, it's all the same. I got nothin' today." No one seems to be able to stick to the same story though, and Don Was, who produced several Stones albums admitted that "they're getting together, and there's a number of plans on the table, but what they'll do is still coming together."
The Rolling Stones film Crossfire Hurricane, which documents the band's career, will air on November 15th on Hbo. Director Brett Morgen said of the film, "Crossfire Hurricane invites the audience to experience first hand the Stones' nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty. This is not an academic history lesson. Crossfire Hurricane allows the viewer to experience the Stones' journey from a unique vantage point. It's an aural and visual roller coaster ride."
