THE ROLLING STONES 14 ON FIRE
SHOWS IN ABU DHABI, TOKYO, MACAU, PERTH, SYDNEY, MELBOURNE, HANGING ROCK, BRISBANE, AUCKLAND ANNOUNCED TODAY
Ladies and Gentlemen they are back! THE ROLLING STONES have announced today that they will kick off their 14 ON FIRE tour with a very special one-off show in Abu Dhabi on 21 February 2014, before heading out on the road across the Far East and Asia to play three shows in Tokyo and a one-off show in Macau. The rock icons will then travel to Australia and New Zealand for one-off shows in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Hanging Rock, Brisbane and Auckland. A further two big concerts in Asia will be announced soon.
The 14 ON FIRE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after a mammoth run of concerts in the U.S and the U.K in 2013, an exhilarating and critically acclaimed celebration of five decades of the Rolling Stones bringing their iconic music and groundbreaking stage shows to audiences around the globe.
Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-1974, will be a special guest for this tour.
The stage design for the indoor concerts is based on the band’s ubiquitous tongue and lips logo, which extends out into the crowd, allowing the Stones to interact directly with their audience. The exclusive ‘Tongue Pit’ GA Standing area inside the stage will give fans in this area an incomparable 360 degree concert experience. Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.
The band will treat their generations of fans to a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumping Jack Flash”, “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll”, plus a couple of unexpected cover versions.
