May 24 - Oh man, brothers & sisters
=> Can you believe it? Again, we have the pride and joy to count down the last hours before The Rolling Stones start their new tour. We've been lucky for more than 50 fuckin'years now. Really, folks, if you think about it ... I'm simply floored and I'm incedibly proud of this band! So all of you who got tickets to one of those shows to come: enjoy it and celebrate these incedible band!
=> Mick has spent the day yesterday to hike near San Diego, Keith traveled by bus and we should not forget to vote our song of choice for San Diego: we can choose from among Let's Spend The Night Together, Street Fighting Man, Get Off Of My Cloud and When The Whip Comes Down! If you have time before the show, try the Hard Rock Cafe, it will be full of Stones fans. And if you are looking for more Stones gear, check out the Lucky Brand Store at 621 5th Avenue - they play Stones music, too [thx keefgirl, sdb]. The stage has been set up [thx haukej, hairball, iorr]. If there's time in the morning or at noon, check out the stadium, you might get to hear the soundcheck! In the backstage area, all signs are ready for the band's feeling at home, wherever they are... [thx jimpietryga, sdb]

May 21 - Secret Gig Aftermath
=> Great reviews for a even bigger show: the press on yesterday's gig at the Fonda theatre! The Denver Post: Rolling Stones rock small LA club ahead of stadium tour / The NY Times: Rolling Stones Rock Small LA Club Ahead of Stadium Tour / UT San Diego: Rolling Stones soar at surprise L.A. show: The band's Wednesday gig at the intimate Fonda Theatre was a triumph of passion and musical craft. It bodes very well for the group's Sunday Petco Park show. /
May 20 - Secret Gig today! ... ok, SOLD OUT! / They play the complete Sticky Fingers and more!!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, on the first night of their American tour, will you please welcome THE ROLLING STONES!
=> Not really *THAT* surprise: some hundred tickets were online, now the Club is sold out. Tickets were available for $ 5.- apparently. Beware of the scalpers!
WHAT: LOS ANGELES CLUB SHOW, PLAYING EVERY SONG FROM STICKY FINGERS & MORE…
ONSALE: TODAY AT 12 NOON PT, ONLY AT rollingstones.com
Show time: 8 PM // Doors open at 6:30 PM // No line-ups prior to 5:30 PM
=> Yes, it's today and the re-release of Sticky Fingers will play a role! Apparently, there's a filmcrew at the theatre and maybe there is a broadcast later [thx paperposter, sdb]. That could point less to a simple warm-up gig but more to a kind of DVD production or something. The filming is done by JA Digital from London, UK. Local station announced that show without mentioning tickets [thx Fonda, sdb]. Maybe it's on invitation only, like the gig at the Beacon...
=> OPENING ACTS: Brad Paisley in NASHVILLE, Kid Rock in OHIO, St. Paul and the Broken Bones in ATLANTA and BUFFALO, Buddy Guy in MILWAUKEE, Gary Clark Jr in SAN DIEGO, Grace Potter in DALLAY [thx Chris!], Ed Sheeran in KANSAS CITY, Awolnation in PITTSBURGH, Walk The Moon in DETROIT
=> Only a few days left before the tour starts: it's about time for another surprise gig of the Rolling Stones in LA/Hollywood! Some rumors point to the Fonda Theatre, but that's not certain. In less than 24 hours, we will know for sure! I'm so much enjoying the excitement growing again just before all of this happens. Tons of good luck to all of you who are in the area and are prepared to join in the right queue! Send in some lines, post some pics, TWEET TO STONESNEWS, if possible, and let's share the fun!

July 20, 2011 (and for eternity) - The Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers And The Lost Photo Session
Ok, this comes a bit late. But since there are no more news about the possible gigs for Hide Park or anything like a tour in 2012 right now, I thought we could use the occasion and look back over yonder...
Recently, a treasure of photographs were discoverd after photographer Peter Webb's negatives went missing after shooting the Stones for that monster record "Sticky Fingers". Then, out of nowhere, they are re-discovered after a gap of almost 40 years. Let's have a look... oh man, have a look at Keith's eyes ...
