The Rolling Stones' highly-anticipated U.S. tour has been delayed by one day due to the NBA Playoff schedule.
The band was supposed to kick off their 50 & Counting trek at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on May 2, but following the release of the basketball tournament details, they have pushed back the first concert until May 3.
Now the Los Angeles Lakers will take on the San Antonio Spurs at the venue, the night before the Rolling Stones take to the stage.
A statement from the band reads, "The Rolling Stones will now kick off their 50 & Counting tour in Los Angeles at Staple Center on Friday May 3. The original May 2 show was rescheduled due to the NBA Playoff schedule."
In a post on his Twitter page, frontman Mick Jagger adds, "The first date of the tour has been confirmed for May 3! Can't wait to get back on stage & hopefully see you all. Rehearsals are going great."
I saw them in 1981 in L.A, when PRINCE opened for them. the tickets were 20$ back then. The prices for these shows today ,well i`ll just wait for the DVD. But they did put on a good show then.
