French magazines “Paris Match” and “Ladepeche.fr” have some very interesting news for us:
According to the magazine, AEG, the promoter of The Rolling Stones NO FILTER 2021 North American tour, has asked european promoters to sent in their offers for The Rolling Stones to play at their european festivals in 2022! It’s $5 million per gig.
“Woah! This is GREAT NEWS! Indeed!”
Namely, the festival of Garorock in Marmande is mentioned. And the date will be the 26th of June 2022, which is a Sunday.. As for the status of negotiations, they are ‘well advanced‘, as the article reads. “Even on the verge of being signed“, according to certain sources ladepeche.fr contacted on August 4. In short, they claim that there would be only a few details left to work out and that at this point, “it is no longer a dream but a reality.“
So after the US tour we will have the EU tour, celebrating the 6th decade of live concerts of this band. Truly, this is the gratest Rock’n’Roll band on this planet.
What does this tell us?
Well, first, it tells us, that the band wishes to join us fans once more in the EU and UK once more as long it’s still possible. so we definitely can look forward to a another summer with The Rolling Stones playing live for us at festivals and stadiums. After 6 decades of playing live for us, what else could we possibly ask for?
The fact, that they still play for us (and themselves, too, of course), is a wonder in itself!
And second, on a less emotional and more business level, we again have to face the fact, that this band is heading the list of the most expensive acts you could possibly book for your party, hehehe …
“At the beginning of July the rock planet took off. When AEG announced to European promoters that the Rolling Stones had agreed to participate in the 2022 summer festivals, everyone pulled out their calculators. With a fee of 5 million dollars per concert, the Stones are the most expensive group on the market.”
