If you tried to tell me the Rolling Stones were doing a show for just $20, I'd call you a liar.
And I'd be wrong.
Last week, the iconic band announced a four-date promo tour in London and the New York area. But first, according to Rolling Stone magazine, they'll be playing "a surprise warm-up gig tonight in Paris, with tickets priced at just $20." Incredible!
It's a pretty big deal, too. Not only will tonight be the Stones' first live show since 2007, but it also kicks off their 50th anniversary reunion.
Not in Paris tonight? No worries! Guitarist Keith Richards hinted that more surprise gigs may be on the way: "My experience with the Rolling Stones is that once the juggernaut starts rolling, it ain't gonna stop. So without sort of saying definitely yes – yeah. We ain't doing all this for four gigs!"
So break out your promotional lighter and get ready to rock with the Rolling Stones!
