The Rolling Stones announced that they will play Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Saturday, May 25, 2013 and Thursday, June 6, 2013 on their 50 and Counting Tour. The legendary rockers are celebrating fifty years in the business and if you haven’t yet seen the gents live, you might want to add this to your bucket list. I didn’t get a chance to see the Stones in concert until December 1994 on their Voodoo Lounge Tour at the Rogers Centre (then SkyDome) in Toronto and deeply regretted not seeing them on their previous tour when Bill Wyman was still with the group. Nevertheless, seeing the Stones live was my best concert experience ever due to Jagger’s unlimited source of energy and legendary dance style (given homage by Adam Levine in Maroon Five’s “Moves like Jagger”), Keith Richards’s unapologetic performance and the band’s overall synchronization. Even as these rockers enter their seventies (Mick Jagger proved at the 2011 Grammy Awards that he is as fit as ever at 69), this is a not-to-be-missed show.
The Stones have said they will play some of their classics including “Jumping Jack Flash,” “It’s Only Rock and Roll,” “Paint It Black” and “Gimme Shelter,” as well as a few covers and some newer material.
Tickets for the Rolling Stones at Air Canada Centre go on sale on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 10 a.m. and cost $166.50, $266.50, $466.50 and $624.50.
I saw the Stones years ago when they played in Montreal. I was living in Ottawa and the tickets came to me as a bolt out of the blue. My husband (then my boyfriend) called me and told me a client had given him two tickets for amazing seats to the Rolling Stones concert in Montreal. The catch was that the concert was that night and he couldn’t make it. A girlfriend and I sorted it out and enjoyed one of the most fun and energetic concerts I’ve ever attended. I’ve always been so grateful that I could seize the opportunity.
Although they have demonstrated incredible longevity, sooner or later the Stones will stop playing. So while the opportunity exists I would encourage folks to take the opportunity and have a great night of music and fun.
