|Mick Jagger commented: “Can't wait to reconnect with all our friends in Australia & New Zealand. It's been a while since we've played to you all, so we are looking forward to being back on stage & playing your favourite songs.”
Keith Richards added: “We all had such a ball this year and so we wanted to keep it going! The energy between the band is better than ever and we’re all looking forward to coming back Down Under. I can’t wait to get back on the stage with the boys”
The Rolling Stones will return to the road after a mammoth run of touring through the States in 2013, an exhilarating and critically acclaimed celebration of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood bringing their iconic music and ground-breaking stage shows to audiences around the globe.
Mick Taylor, who was a member of The Rolling Stones from 1969-1974, will be a special guest for this tour.
The band will treat their generations of fans to a set of classic Stones hits like “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumping Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice,” and “It’s Only Rock and Roll,” curated with lesser known gems, and a cover or two.
The stage design for the indoor concerts is based on the band’s ubiquitous tongue and lips logo, which extends out into the audience. The exclusive ‘Tongue Pit’ GA Standing area inside the stage will give a limited number of fans in this area an incomparable 360-degree concert experience. Known for their groundbreaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones show.
The Rolling Stones were last down under in 2006 on their “A Bigger Bang” World Tour, with shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington. In 2003 their “Licks” Tour saw them perform in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Adelaide and Perth last saw the band in 1995, on the “Voodoo Lounge World Tour”, which also included shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland. Their first ever tour of Australia was in 1965. The 2014 tour will be their seventh tour of our shores.
