Rolling Stones Expand 50 and Counting Tour
"Normally when you announce a tour like this, you announce part of it, you leave it to be, you see what happens, you might do a date here and another date there. You don't want to be completely hand fast, so you do leave some dates in between," Mick Jagger said in an interview last week according to AP. "So we'll see what happens."
Apparently they didn't have to wait long, as the band added three North American dates to the trek already and are rumored to be adding a second date at London's Hyde Park after the 65,000 tickets for the announced show sold out in minutes.
The newly announced North American dates include two more shows at Chicago's United Center on May 31 and June 3 as well as a second concert at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto that will take place on June 6.
A UK tabloid is reporting that "a spokesman for the band confirmed they would add a second Hyde Park date, expected to be just one or two days after the first performance."
The band had additional good news for fans; they will be selling a block of tickets for under a $100. They announced that they will be offering "over a 1,000 tickets at $85 (including service charges). Some will be among the best seats in the house in the Tongue Pit, with others spread around the arena. Tickets will be sold as a pair. You will find out your seat location when you pick them up the night of the show. Other tickets range from $150- $600 (plus service charges)."
