Rolling Stones tour delayed

WENN

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.

Bing: Stones back on the road

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."

Greatest rock n roll band in the world!  Think about it. The Beatles , broke up over 40 years ago, janise, jimmie, morrison, lennon, harrison, all dead and the stones are on the road.  Remember this, Keith can not die form natural causes! I saw them in 1978, 1981, and 1990. Greatest shows ever and I have seen em all!

 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.

Back in the early 80's when the Stone played Phoenix, I remember a guy telling a group of us teens that he had tickets and would take "whoever was nicest to him" as his date. "What a Pig!" is what I remember thinking. Now in my 50's and wishing I'd seen the Stones live just once, knowing that the price of tickets makes that impossible, I'm thinking maybe I coulda been a little bit nicer.

It's a simple case of "the Emperor having no clothes". You know they suck, and I know they suck. But the slobbering masses who think being at one of their shows is a way of rubbing elbows with royalty, and in a sick sort of way makes them feel trendy, have no clue. Nor do they want to reralize the truth. These geezers are just padding their retirement incomes while they still can. I expect one of them to drop dead during this mini tour.

              First concert 1975 @ Arrowhead Stadium age 14 , here was the running order of the bands : Rufus (featuring Chaka Khan) , The Gap Band , The Eagles , THE ROLLING STONES !!! All the bands were great ; The Stones were PHENOMENAL !!! Ron Wood had just "officialy" replaced Mick Taylor (you get a different guitar player , you don't "replace" Mick Taylor). Hotter than a June bride in a microwave down on the tarp ; a friendly 2nd generation hippie chick shared some opium dipped Thai Stick and some Annie Green Spings out of a bhoda bag with me. Ticket price : $9.00. I am crappin you negative (**** you not).
