To mark their golden anniversary as a band, the Rolling Stones earlier today announced four — yup, just four — 50th anniversary shows, two in London and two in... Newark, N.J.? Home to Mayor Cory Booker and ... Mayor Cory Booker?
Yes, the only U.S. dates on the schedule (for now) are at Newark’s Prudential Center on December 13th and 15th. But as Rolling Stone puts it, “it seems likely the tour will continue in 2013.” The tour is called “50 Years & Counting...” after all. We’ll keep you posted if a D.C. date is confirmed.
Until then, if you’re a big enough fan to go all-in on a trip to Newark, tickets go on sale Friday at noon for between $95 and $750. Amtrak will set you back at least another $49 one way, so it might be worth waiting to see if D.C. gets its own taste of the Stones before emptying the bank account.
