The Rolling Stones have added a second show to the closing stand of their 50 & Counting tour at the Wells Fargo Center. In addition to June 18, the Stones will also now be playing on 21. Tickets for both shows go on sale through ComcastTix.com at 10 a.m. on Monday.
To get yourself in the mood to get Stones tickets, which go for as much as $600, pick up a copy of the Sunday Inquirer for my interview with Mick Jagger, whom I talked to this week on the phone from somewhere in the West Indies, where the 69 year old singer was doing pre-tour prep work for 50 & Counting.
Here's a couple grafs that got cut out of the print edition:
The shows the Stones played in 2012 all featured Mick Taylor, a Stone from 1969-74, who will also play in Philadelphia. That period, when the band released louche, decadent masterpieces including Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main St., is considered by many the Stones greatest. Does Jagger have a favorite phase?
“Not really,” he says. “Actually, no. I can make one up for you if you want. When we started out, it was hilarious. Then it was pretty difficult. It was very hard to break out in America. Then when we did, in sort of ‘66 or so, it was really a fantastic time. … But I don’t really have a favorite.”
"Fool To Cry," from 1976, is below.
