The Stones back in the day
Rolling Stones

Remember how we said that The Rolling Stones were rumored to play London's O2 Arena and Brooklyn's Barclays Center this November? Well, it didn't exactly come true, but close enough. The Rolling Stones will in fact play London's O2 Arena in November, and in December they'll come just outside of NYC to play The Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on December 13 and 15. Presale begins Saturday (10/20) at noon for VIP hospitality packages and on Monday, October 22 an AmEx presale and a Stones Archive presale begin at noon. Tickets (ranging from $95 to $750) go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 26 at noon.

These shows take place just after the Rolling Stones film exhibit, which will be open at MoMA from November 15 to December 2.

A list of all Rolling Stones dates, a trailer video for the shows, and a stream of their new single, "Doom and Gloom," off of their upcoming greatest hits album, GRRR!, are below.

Back in the day indeed. Great caption, no further specification necessary.

Fact: $750 can feed a British senior citizen for over 2 and a half years.

Will they be playing Bitter Sweet Symphony?

Umm last time I saw the Stones at Giants Stadium I paid $50..what happened?

You're all complaining like you actually have a shot at getting tickets LOL

I give mad respect to Springsteen who maintains a top ticket price of $100 and plays a 3 hour show...screw the stones

I love the service charge on the $753 ticket...$63!!!!

Man I hope the play a Bigger Bang front to back..love to see everyones expression!

ge the cheapest tix on the floor, they always have the moving stage, there's a better chance at seeing them up close than people sitting in the front sections

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 9:11 AM

9:04 if you try for 1 ticket you can get in easy at the onsale..

Why see The Rolling Stones when you can see Passion Pit

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 9:18 AM

Did the city of Newark pay off the Stones? Now I have to trek to that shithole if I want to see them -_-

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 9:20 AM

that venue is very close to the train station, and in all fairness, sound is better than MSG
and if you are going to bring up the violent issue after the RHCP show, it can happen anywhere

The Stones are quite meh but not very hummus-like.

What would be the Stones version of the Beach Boy's 'Kokomo'? You know the song you can't stand, but all the assholes around you want to hear.

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 9:51 AM

So...the only 2 shows in the US are going to be in...NEWARK. So fans from all over the country are going to be trying for this show? Not just you little vegan bitches trying to make a quick buck flipping tickets to buy more hummus?

What happened to anonymous who said there would be precious Brooklyn dates?? Man oh man. Anonymous let me down again!!

scalping pays off, at least for this show

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 9:55 AM

I'd rather see the stones in Newark in a nice arena with good sound. MSG is a dump.

From Wiki:The show There were five different ticket options at each concert in the USA: Gold Seating $100, Diamond Seating $350, Premium Seating $175, General Admission $100 and Side Seating $50. In the United Kingdom, the price levels were £40, £60, £90, £150 and £340.

Scalpers will lose. 9:55 at least if you buy the $750 tickets those will drop BIG TIME!

in case the Stones didn't notice the economy sucks.

To 9:53, that may have been Suprefan who talked about Brooklyn dates. He lives in the LA area.

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 10:38 AM

if they are only playing two shows in the East Coast, i think the guy who commented on scalping is totally right
people will pay for these, and we all know those attending can afford it

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 10:42 AM

They are also playing shows at Barclay's. This will be announced after Newark sells out in about 1/16th of a second.

Like someone said above, stop bitching cause the chances of any of you getting a ticket is slim at best and that includes the ones saying they will only get 1. Unless you are planning on buying the most expensive tickets you pretty much don't stand a chance in hell of seeing this show.

Saying Newark has better sound than MSG is pretty fucking funny. How can you possibly tell the difference between 2 pieces of shit? Good sound and these 2 arenas are not in harmony so please shut up you clueless deaf shit heads.

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 10:45 AM

9:22, sound is better than MSG?
You must be joking...
That venue is fine and not too hard to get to, def better than izod shithole, but no arena in the country has better sound than MSG nowdays.

Posted by ME | October 15, 2012 10:53 AM

They want to make sure only Romney supporters attend these shows.

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 10:55 AM

i bet all you people are bitching because you cannot afford the ticket price, or just because you got the day off at Uniqlo?

Forget the Stones TANLINES ARE PLAYING!

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 11:16 AM

Wow, an open date on 12.4 - Wonder what they are going to do with that free day?!

Also, when are they announcing the multiple nights @ Yankee Stadium?

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 11:36 AM

"Wow, an open date on 12.4 - Wonder what they are going to do with that free day?!"

I think you mean an open date on 12/14. You want to know what they are going to be doing on that date? They are old men so the answer is resting.

Oh and Yankee Stadium dates Dec 21 ans 22 in the outdoor freezing cold. Watch for it ya fucking dummy.

Rolling Stones at Maxwells for the 8 nights of Hannukah. They are taking over for Yo La Tengo..you heard it here first!

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 12:08 PM

There will be NO tix available on the general onsale, and nothing under $200 available in either pre-sale. Plan for disappointment.

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 12:25 PM

I doubt it's just 2 shows....

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 12:41 PM

NY Daily News is reporting that the Stones nixed Barclays because they want the final show to be on PPV and Barclays could not accommodate.......

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2012 12:49 PM

@11:41 - No, 12.14 they are adding another Prudential show.

And you are the fucking idiot who thinks they are only playing four shows. Do us all a favor and go play in traffic you fuck.

It's for old rich white people. The same lawyer folks that have front row seats at a Bob Dylan show that look at their Blackberry phone the whole show.

Plus they need the money for their daughters coke funds too. Those shows with fund their future fake jobs (Dj,fashion designer,restaurant owner)

Prudential Ctr is "just outside of NYC" like the Stones of 2012 are "just outside of" the Stones of 1972.

Once in a lifetime show for sure, worth quite a bit for anyone.

wow finally, a show by the stones, a band that can really "rock".

They're now living up to their name... considering they're now as old as most stones.

Very interesting article, I look forward to more research coming out regarding the remaining two thirds

The Stones today at their age are a million times better than any of the crappy younger bands out today.

lol not really

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2012 10:03 AM

^great ok when was the last good Stones Album?

Have you seen them live? I have twice..and their live show is ok..not great

You need to get out more..if you said the stones in the 1970's where a million times better then ok.

After 1980 WOWZA Awful! how much would you pay to see a stones concert of their 80-2012 output..

9:02 > Anyone who mentions Titus Andronicus within 20 miles of the Rolling Stones needs to have their head examined.

Theres about maybe 10 interesting metal bands who have been around for a while out 10,000 or so that pop up every 5 mins lately.
