WILD HORSES: During his recent press junket promoting Life, Keith Richards had no definitive answer to the constant questions about the Rolling Stones’ touring plans, but something was then in the process of going down, whether he knew about it (likely) or not. We’ve just learned that the Stones team is very close to finalizing a deal that would bring them to Coachella next April. According to our sources, they’ll pick up a cool $5 million for playing the date; Paul McCartney pocketed $3.5 million for playing Coachella in 2009. This is the biggest booking coup yet for Coachella kingpin Paul Tollett, whose fest has served as a launch pad for numero

Rolling Stones Not Playing Coachella 2011
11/18/2010 9:23 AM ET

(RTTNews) - Representatives for the Rolling Stones have shut down rumors that the band will headline next year's Coachella Music Festival.

The rumor first popped up on HitsDailyDouble.com, where anonymous sources said the rock legends had accepted $5 million to perform at the event. When asked by Examiner.com about the rumor, the band's publicist said: "To the best of my knowledge, the rumor is not true."

This is not the first time the Stones have been linked to the summer fest, as they were also rumored for an appearance in 2010. Next year's Coachella Music festival will take place April 15 through April 17 in Indio, California.

And though Stones fans may miss the group at Coachella next year, the band will be featured this Thanksgiving holiday on VH1, VH1 Classic, and Palladia. The three networks will show a selection of Rolling Stones documentaries for three days starting on November 24.

Rolling Stones headlining Coachella 2011: rumor 'not true,' says the band's rep

November 16th, 2010 10:22 am ET.

The Rolling Stones' publicist is denying a rumor that the band is close to signing a deal to headline the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in 2011. As previously reported, the rumor first appeared on the HitsDailyDouble website, which claimed that unnamed sources said that the Stones were in negotiations to perform at Coachella 2011 for a supposed $5 million fee. The 2011 Coachella Fest is set to take place April 15, April 16, and April 17 in Indio, California.

When I asked the Rolling Stones' publicist for a comment on this report, she told me, "To the best of my knowledge," the rumor is "not true."

It seems like every week there is a new report or rumor that the Rolling Stones will play somewhere in 2011. The Stones/Coachella rumor isn't new. A rumor started in 2009 that the Stones might be playing the 2010 edition of Coachella. (It never happened.)

In early November 2010, the band's press office issued a statement saying that there are "no concrete plans" for the band to have a new album and tour in 2011. The band's most recent studio album is 2005's Grammy-nominated "A Bigger Bang." The subsequent tour for the album lasted from 2005 to 2007.

At this point, what has been confirmed (according to what Rolling Stones guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood have said in interviews) is the Rolling Stones will hold a summit in December 2010 to discuss the band's future plans.

Given how much time and effort that the Stones put into preparing for their concerts, it would seem very rushed for them to perform at a major event like Coachella less than five months after that meeting. Wherever the Rolling Stones choose to perform their first concert since 2007, it will most likely be in a setting that is very much a Rolling Stones setting, not a festival where they are one of many acts on the bill.

They want more than $5 mil? Fuck the Rolling Stones then. Spread that money around for the undercard.

I mean, I think they would be a great choice as a headliner, even if I might not see them, but how much fucking money do those greedy old fucks really need?

Definitely. The goal of any corporation is to maximize revenue. In order to offset their own costs and still profit substantially the band asks for more money. This is basic economics. And these guys are egotistical pricks.

The band made relatively small amounts of money during the 60s and 70s due to bad deals (Allen Klein) and poor spending habits. They've only been making substantial money in the last decades because Mick has run the band as a business, which it is. And he's a shrewd motherfucker.

EDIT: In response to lurker.

The Rolling Stones have numerous 3-5 million offers on the table at any given time so any festival appearance would be part of a larger tour which probably won't be getting off the ground any earlier than next August.

Music lives in the past present and future. Why would you ever limit your self or put an expiration date on something you enjoy? It's not like he found a bunch of shitty hack musicians either. People just want to cry about that egomaniac Slash not being in the band all day. lol. Get ready though because when they tour the US next year, Duff will join for a few shows, as will Izzy and possibly even Stephen Adler. Fuck Slash, let him spend the rest of his life being a caricature of himself playing with pop stars. People are blind to it but Axl is the only one who is actually still relevant. None of these other guys are playing stadiums around the globe.

I saw that tour (with FNM as the opening act). Fortunately, I also got to see them during the "Appetite" years ('87-'88), when they were worth seeing.

Edit: that being said, this has no place anywhere near the Polo Fields.
