The Rolling Stones have confirmed four arena shows in London and New York
As part of their 50th anniversary celebrations, the rock icons will play at London’s O2 Arena on November 25 and 29.
The band will then sail across the pond to perform at Prudential Center, Newark, near New York on December 13 and 15.
“Everybody loves a celebration, and London and New York are two good places to do it in,” said Mick Jagger.
Keith Richards added, ”Sorry to keep you all hanging around but the waiting is over. I've always said the best place for rock and roll is on the stage and the same is true for the Stones. I'm here with Mick, Charlie and Ronnie and everything is rocking. See you very soon!"
The 2012 concerts will mark the first time that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have performed together as a band since three acclaimed nights at London’s O2 Arena, in 2007.
Fans can look forward to an all-new, custom-built set design, with a stage based on the band’s ubiquitous and celebrated tongue and lips logo, which will reach out into the crowd.
