THE ROLLING STONES set to rock Adelaide Oval in 2014!

THE ROLLING STONES

SET TO ROCK AUSTRALIA AT THE BRAND NEW ADELAIDE OVAL

SATURDAY 22 MARCH 2014

#StonesAdelaide

 

Ladies and Gentleman they are back!  The most eagerly anticipated concert of years and the entertainment opening of the world class Adelaide Oval in 2014 were announced today as rock icons The Rolling Stones confirm their long awaited return to the stage in Australia with a spectacular show. The date, unveiled today, is Saturday 22 March 2014.

 

This special Adelaide show continues the exhilarating celebration of the band’s five decades, with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Woods bringing their iconic music and ground-breaking stage shows to audiences around the globe.

 

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday 25 November 2013 from 9am ACST – for further details see below.

 

Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-1974, will be a special guest for this concert.

 

The stage design for this show includes a massive ramp, over 30 metres long, which extends right into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their audience.  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.

 

This is easily going to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, stage and production Adelaide has ever seen with nearly 60 trucks required for all the staging and production. It will be the only show in Australia featuring this level of outdoor production.

 

The Rolling Stones are really looking forward to this huge concert to open this iconic new venue:

 

Mick Jagger said: “It’s great to be invited to Adelaide to open the historic Oval…we’re really looking forward to doing this gig, it will be the first time we’ve been to Adelaide in nearly 20 years, so see you there!”

 

Keith Richards said: “Hi everyone down in Adelaide, it’s been a while since we were in your back yard… see you on March 22 when we’ll take over your new stadium and make it our own, look forward to it”.

 

Tony Cochrane from iEC said “Adelaide Oval and the Government asked me to come up with the biggest night I could think of for this one off event to re-open Adelaide Oval – that made it easy – it had to be The Rolling Stones and it had to be on a massive scale! ”

 

The Rolling Stones were recently crowned the ‘Best Live Band” at the NME Awards in London, and over the past 12 months have thrilled fans with the release of a ground-breaking new documentary, ‘Crossfire Hurricane’, a greatest hits collection, ‘GRRR!’, a massive US tour and a ground-breaking, back to back, sold out set of two historic Hyde Park concerts in the UK in front of 120,000, which are chronicled in a new concert film ‘Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live’.

 

The Adelaide concert will be promoted by IEC in association with Frontier/AEG Live.

 

More Rolling Stones concerts in Australia, and one in New Zealand, will be announced by Frontier Touring & AEG Live in the next few weeks.

 

Saturday 22 March 2014

 

Pre-sale tickets will go on sale from 11.00am ACST on Thursday 21 November until 6.00pm ACST Friday 22 November (or earlier if pre-sale allocation is exhausted)

 

General public tickets will go on sale at 9.00am ACST Monday 25 November
