Are The Rolling Stones lined up to headline Coachella Festival in 2013?
It looks as though the people that make the band’s official iPhone app may have just secretly leaked details of their plans for 2013. On Friday (December 14, 2012), the band’s app had details of a performance on April 12, 2013, at Indio, at the Coachella Festival, NME reports. Although the date was later removed, in the age of the screen grab, there’s no stopping news like that form going viral.
The last time the band performed at a festival was back in 2007, when they played at the Isle of Wight Festival and the fans of the band who have a ticket for Glastonbury Festival 2013 will probably still be holding out hope that Jagger & co. will still be announced as one of the UK festival’s main acts, too.
The Rolling Stones performed at the Prudential Center in Newark New Jersey on Sunday (December 16, 2012) and were joined on stage by Lady GaGa. The quirky pop star performed an energetic version of ‘Gimme Shelter’ as part of the band’s recent run of 50th anniversary celebrations. Dressed in a stripy catsuit and towering platform heels, she ended the performance with her arms draped around Mick Jagger’s neck. On previous dates, the honour of singing the track with the band had gone to Mary J Blige and Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine.
