Rolling Stones May Play Coachella
A mysterious new date just popped up on the Rolling Stones’ tour itinerary, and all clues point to the legendary rock band playing Coachella in 2013.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but the Stones’ mobile app revealed two new dates after tonight’s Newark, New Jersey, gig, which was supposed to be the final stop on their short 50th anniversary tour.
One of the dates is later this month, most likely a screening of a new documentary about the group. The other date listed was April 12, 2013, in Indio, Ca., and it’s clearly marked “Coachella 2013.”
The date disappeared from the band’s tour itinerary shortly after fans spotted the info and posted a screen grab.
The Stones played just a handful of concerts in London and New York this year to mark their 50th anniversary. It seems a bit odd that the Stones wouldn’t play more shows, especially since their tours in the past typically go on for months.
Keith Richards told ‘Rolling Stone’ in October, “Once the juggernaut starts rolling, it ain’t gonna stop. So without sort of saying definitely yes – yeah. We ain’t doing all this for four gigs.”
The Stones wrap up their official tour tonight in Newark with special guests the Black Keys, Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen.
