After Brooklyn native Jay-Z plays three shows in September, followed by Smashing Pumpkins and Barbra Streisand in October, the Barclays Center will welcome the British: The Rolling Stones are heavily rumored to be playing two shows in November. Good thing liquor license was secured!
A source tells Billboard the gigs will be part of a 50th anniversary tour, with two shows at the O2 Arena in London and two at the Barclays Center: "Richard Branson and Australian promoter Paul Dainty will promote, and the source says the Stones will be paid $25 million for the four shows."
Billboard also points out that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards said they wouldn't go on tour this year, but then Richards told BBC, "We're playing around with the idea and had a couple of rehearsals. We've got together, and it feels so good... There's things in the works; I think it's definitely happening. But when? I can't say yet."
