Earlier today it was confirmed that one of the most legendary bands in the history of rock and roll would be returning to Australia to tour for the first time in eight years and now The Rolling Stones have officially announced they will play a special show at Adelaide Oval on Saturday, 22nd March 2014 as well as more shows in Sydney, Melbourne and elsewhere in Australia and New Zealand.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood will be returning to Australia with one of popular music’s most iconic and successful catalogues in tow, as well as Mick Taylor, a member of the Stones from 1969-1974, who will be a special guest.
Fairfax Media have also independently confirmed with a “music industry source” that Melbourne will be hosting TWO shows, with just one confirmed for Sydney so far but there is the possibility of more to be added.
Taking place at the newly revamped Adelaide Oval, this is set be the biggest stage production the fair city has ever seen, with stage design including a massive 30+ metre ramp, which extends into the audience allowing for fans to interact directly with the band.
Known for their cutting edge sets, the stage design will also feature groundbreaking video screens and special effects elements, with a view to enhancing what is bound to be an incredible experience for the crowd. Logistics will be enlisting the help of nearly 60 trucks to get the show off the ground.
“It’s great to be invited to Adelaide to open the historic Oval…we’re really looking forward to doing this gig, it will be the first time we’ve been to Adelaide in nearly 20 years, so see you there!” said iconic frontman Mick Jagger.
More Rolling Stones concerts are set for Australia and New Zealand, and are expected to be announced by Frontier Touring & AEG Live in the next few weeks. Ticket prices for the Adelaide Oval show will start at $79 for General Admission tickets, on sale 9.00am ACST Monday, 25th November.
