Rolling Stones' '50 And Counting' Tour Sold £24 Million Worth Of Tickets
The Rolling Stones 50th anniversary mini-tour, 50 and Counting, sold 364,864 tickets for just five dates, grossing well over $38 million.
The legendary rockers played two shows at London's 02 Arena (November 25 and 29), selling 31,755 tickets for those shows. The following shows took place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center (December 8) and Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center, the latter of which was aired as a live Pay-Per-View special.
Rumor has it the band will continue touring in 2013, as guitarist Mick Taylor, speaking with Billboard, noted:
"I think everybody is having a good time on stage. It's more than just nostalgia. I think they just feel re-energized and possibly very enthusiastic about doing things in the future."
Mick Jagger added to Rolling Stone magazine that the band has not ruled anything out for 2013:
"There have been quite a few offers. I'm going to see what's on the table and discuss it with everyone. We'll announce it when we've figured it out."
