British rock legends The Rolling Stones will be performing for their fans Down Under in 2014 after all. The ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ musicians confirmed on April 4, 2014 that they will visit Australia for new tour dates in the fall, between October 25, 2014 and November 22, 2014. The announcement came after Michael Gudinski – the Australian promoter whose Frontier Touring is presenting The Rolling Stones in the country with AEG Live – had previously said that they are planning to bring the iconic band back in October 2014 or November 2014.
An official statement on the band’s website reads, “Exact dates for each city will be released as soon as the scheduling is confirmed.” The ‘Satisfaction’ musicians’ tour in Australia was canceled following the death of L’Wren Scott – the famous designer and Mick Jagger’s partner – on March 17, 2014. Once Jagger – and the rest of the band – found out the devastating news, seven dates were postponed, including a performance at the newly refurbished Adelaide Oval.
Industry sources say that The Rolling Stones, as well as other parties participating in staging the tour could be out of pocket by up to $10 million.
This will be the famous band’s seventh time visiting Australia. The ‘Wild Horses’ musicians first came to the country in 1965 and then returned for more performances in 1966. Their last concerts were held in 2006, when they played four shows in Australia and New Zealand.
