September 15 -
=> Rumours have it, that the Stones are close to a done deal for next year's Rock in Rio USA [twitter]. Well, that would be really cool! South America is still very likelay as are two more gigs in London next year. The Stones want to keep rolling, it seems, and we want them to roll, too! And hey, only 39 days left until Adelaine! Wooohooo! And of course they'll have to rehearse before then... folks, I can't wait for it!
September 9 - Keith: South America next February, more dates likely, solo record finished!
=> In an interview at Germano Studios (where he recorded his upcoming solo album), he talked with AP music writer Fekadu about the tour next year and his solo record.. He said that South America was lined up for next February, after the Australian and New Zealand gigs. This of course is also not an official Rolling Stones announcement, but it comes pretty close, I guess. He also said that after South America, Stones tours tend to get extended - that's a hint towards more possible dates maybe in 2015. He said it would sound like the band could be touring for most of next year.

September 2 - Tour Rumours stable, Get On Up
=> As we cound down the time until the new dates of the formerly postponed dates in Australia ans New Zealand finally happen, we can still hold on to hopes for more dates in 2015. That tour would start in February 2015 and will take the band to Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Peru, Costa Rica, Colombiy and Mexico until it winds up in April. The site stonesplanetbrazil mentions news concerning these plans would be announced within the next 2 or 3 weeks. Of course, all these things are 100% unofficial. But still, we sem to have reason to hope that after Australia and New Zealand, the band will go on to play selected gigs.
=> Mick Jagger, Co-Producer of the James Brown bio "Get On Up" will be in Zurich, Switzerland, for the French premiere and out of competition screening at the french filmfestival in Deauville on September 12. Here he is, together with Brian Grazer, talking about the film:

July 28 - 15 ON FIRE, 14 ON FIRE, Happy Birthday, Mick!
=> It's been a while that rumours started that the band would play on after the gigs in Australia and New Zealand this fall. Now, Bjornulf from IORR has added fuel to the fire of hopes. It's talk about several more shows to happen in South America next spring in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Uruguay, Colombia and Costa Rica! Woah! I mean, really, that is some good news, isn't it? But remember, nothing is official as of today yet. The pace ot the Stones tours definitey has slowed down during the recent tours. But if they manage to still tour on like this for some years more, I'ld be the last to complain!
=> Keith has been busy, too. We hear he's recording his own stuff some more and just beginning this month, he guested Alan Clayton and his father, Johnny Clayton at his house; Anita was there, too... you'll find more details at The Dirty Strangers FB page (thx, Buy Buy Johnny!)
=> Happy Birthday Mick! Last Saturday, Mick celebrated his 71 birthday! Thank you Mick for all that music! You're amazing!

July 20, 2011 (and for eternity) - The Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers And The Lost Photo Session
Ok, this comes a bit late. But since there are no more news about the possible gigs for Hide Park or anything like a tour in 2012 right now, I thought we could use the occasion and look back over yonder...
Recently, a treasure of photographs were discoverd after photographer Peter Webb's negatives went missing after shooting the Stones for that monster record "Sticky Fingers". Then, out of nowhere, they are re-discovered after a gap of almost 40 years. Let's have a look... oh man, have a look at Keith's eyes ...
