The "Only if needed" is hilarious, IMHO.

=> The Rolling Stones rolled into the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach Wednesday night for an encore performance at a private show,  but it was an invitation only event and only a few lucky individuals were able to go inside the Belly Up Tavern to see the show. Sources said Rancho Santa Fe resident Ralph Whitworth paid at least $2 million for the concert as a celebration for his current wife. Whitworth is the same person who paid $1 million to have Paul McCartney play at his then wife's 50th birthday a few years ago...

=> Bernard Fowler will be at the Thunderpussy Record store in Columbus at 6pm tomorrow. He'll be there and sign your copy of his new album "The Bura". (Short North, 1155 N High St, Columbus, Oh 43201) [thx Michelejagger, sdb]

=> The Tim Ries' Project with Bernard Fowler, Darryl Jones, Tim Ries, Karl Denson abd Chuck Leavell are playing in Columbus on Friday 5/29, for 20.00 per GA ticket at the Park Street Saloon (525 North Park Street, ColumbusOhio 43215).

    So tonight we’re doing something we've never done before... we used to make these things that go round & round with cardboard covers...
    We're gonna do the whole of STICKY FINGERS! In the order of the 8 track tape... The 1st one we’re gonna do is
  4. Sway
  5. Dead Flowers
    We’re gonna continue the slightly countryish feel, this one we recorded in Muscle Shoals, which I suppose is in the country...
  6. Wild Horses
    I should’ve warned you there are lots of 60s drug references in the songs. It was quite a groovy scene..I think it’s coming back around here. Here's one of them, it's called
  7. Sister Morphine
    Yes indeed, that’s a bit of a down song! And there's more to come it was a bit of a down period!

=> Click on this pic: LA Club Show May 2015

WHO: THE ROLLING STONES
WHAT: LOS ANGELES CLUB SHOW, PLAYING EVERY SONG FROM STICKY FINGERS & MORE…
WHEN: TONIGHT
ONSALE: TODAY AT 12 NOON PT, ONLY AT rollingstones.com
Show time: 8 PM // Doors open at 6:30 PM // No line-ups prior to 5:30 PM

=> Yes, it's today and the re-release of Sticky Fingers will play a role! Apparently, there's a filmcrew at the theatre and maybe there is a broadcast later [thx paperposter, sdb]. That could point less to a simple warm-up gig but more to a kind of DVD production or something. The filming is done by JA Digital from London, UK. Local station announced that show without mentioning tickets [thx Fonda, sdb]. Maybe it's on invitation only, like the gig at the Beacon...

=> OPENING ACTS: Brad Paisley in NASHVILLE, Kid Rock in OHIO, St. Paul and the Broken Bones in ATLANTA and BUFFALO, Buddy Guy in MILWAUKEE, Gary Clark Jr in SAN DIEGO, Grace Potter in DALLAY [thx Chris!], Ed Sheeran in KANSAS CITY, Awolnation in PITTSBURGH, Walk The Moon in DETROIT

=> Only a few days left before the tour starts: it's about time for another surprise gig of the Rolling Stones in LA/Hollywood! Some rumors point to the Fonda Theatre, but that's not certain. In less than 24 hours, we will know for sure! I'm so much enjoying the excitement growing again just before all of this happens. Tons of good luck to all of you who are in the area and are prepared to join in the right queue! Send in some lines, post some pics, TWEET TO STONESNEWS, if possible, and let's share the fun!

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 ...
