    Default Stones - Glastonbury 2013 and a handful of shows in UK & USA

    Forgive me if already posted ...Had a look but couldn't find anything re this

    Rolling Stones plan farewell gig at Glastonbury festival

    Jun 17 2012 By Dean Piper

    The Rolling Stones together ahead of 50-years tour

    THE Rolling Stones are ready to bow out in spectacular style – with a farewell gig at Glastonbury next year.

    The band, whose four members have a combined age of 272, are set to play the Sunday night headline slot on the Pyramid stage after talks with festival organisers Michael and Emily Eavis.

    It will be their first and only performance at the famous Somerset event which attracts 175,000 fans.

    Sources close to the band indicate the appearance is expected to be the final date in a “handful” of shows in Britain and America in 2013 – which they see as their true 50th anniversary – before they finally retire from the live arena.

    One insider said: “All four members have agreed that next year is the right time to have one final hurrah.

    “Glastonbury is the most important festival on the circuit. Everybody’s incredibly excited.”

    The band – whose song The Last Time hit No.1 in 1965 – are said to be reluctant to start another world tour.

    Mick Jagger, 68, doesn’t want to be away from his family and Keith Richards, also 68, has given up the hellraising lifestyle that was a big part of his life on the road. Charlie Watts, 71, has never been a fan of touring anyway.

    But Ronnie Wood, 65, gave a strong hint that the band were preparing a comeback, saying: “It looks like we are going to be doing more stuff.”

    Although the band played their first gig in July 1962, Keith said: “The Stones considered ’63 to be 50 years because Charlie didn’t join until January.”He also hinted ex-bassist Bill Wyman, who left in 1992, might join in.

    Getting them to play twice wouldn't happen.

    From what I understand they are very into getting every penny out of every show they can...if you paid them enough they would do it.

    Yeah right. They could charge $300 per ticket and still sell out any major stadium in the US.

    Yes but with Coachella they have far less overhead costs. Doing it twice cuts down on the overhead costs even more. McCartney can sell out any stadium in the world with too, and he still managed to do Coachella for $3.5 million. Same with Waters, same with Prince. Remember how Prince just did 20 straight shows at the Forum?

    My only point is it's not impossible they'd do Coachella. Especially if they have already announced they're doing festivals.

    stones make too much money off of their own shows to play a festival set. no way that kind of money is in a festivals budget when you have to book the rest of the weekend.

    and word is they are doing one festival. a very prestigious festival in their home country to cap off their career where it's not about the money since headliners don't get paid much traditionally at glasto.

    You think the Stones make that much more money per performance than Roger Waters or Paul McCartney?

    I'm not saying they are playing Coachella, I'm saying there's a better than 0% chance. And for the record, I don't want them to play...I don't like the Stones.

    But they're playing Glastonbury. It says so.

    If they did Coachella, I'd expect that there'd be a string of Staples dates around the same time, too.

    Hey the good news is that they're talking at the same time that Coachella is booking. Coachella definitely is the closest North American equivalent to Glastonbury in terms of the prestige and financial resources necessary to make this possible in a festival setting.

    Yeah, their headliners get £200,000.

    I would think Goldenvoice will try their damnedest to get The Rolling Stones. However, to make that work I guarantee they would have to let them do one or more of their own shows in the LA market. No way they'd do the farewell show in that area just at Coachella alone and call it good, a festival that's almost already sold out. I'd imagine they'd wanna give fans a fair chance to see them one more time.

    So I say Coachella w/ LA shows or no Coachella at all.

    I'm okay with this, just don't make the LA shows during weekend one

    I feel like Rolling Stones are more likely to pull a Coldplay and book 3 Hollywood Bowl shows or wherever. Just seems like something that is more convenient touring wise

    I've changed my mind, if this is "the last hurrah" as they say I would love for them to be at Coachella. I'd prefer to see them outside in a stadium or festival setting anyway - missed their last round of stadium shows in the 00's and wouldn't be terribly excited w/ a Stones arena show for some reason. Go big or go home.

    pretty much this i would think. im too lazy to do a fake poster but it would much just say THE ROLLING STONES for one of the days, and all the undercard would be people like the guy you see at the hollywood bowl singing with the dog puppet since they couldnt afford anyone else

    why would the stones play 3 shows at the bowl when they could play 3 shows at the coliseum?

    GV have made no mention or even hinted at the number of tickets sold a few weeks ago. If they actually sold all 185,000 passes they would have been screaming from the rooftops, nor would relatively affordable hotel packages still be available.

    BTW, Stones have already issued a denial on this news story, though the Glasto part says "won't confirm or deny" which I interpret as a strong likelihood.
