The Rolling Stones will be hitting Singapore following heaps of concerts across the States and UK back in 2013, with this year’s leg covering Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
Chatting about the show, Mick Jagger said: “Can’t wait to be back on stage in Singapore, I am really looking forward to playing all your favourite songs and seeing you all very soon.”
Keith Richards added: “The best place in the world for me is out on that stage. Standby everyone… it’s back to where we belong: me, Mick, Charlie and Ronnie and some friends all rocking out together. The wheels are in motion and we’re on our way… see you very soon!”
Hmm… somehow we’re not convinced Keith was speaking specifically about Singers there.
Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-1974, will be a special guest for their one night in the Lion City.
The stage design for the concert at The Sands Grand Ballroom will be based around creating an intimate setup that allows all audience members to be up close to the band. The stage includes a large catwalk that extends out into the audience, and the band is famous for their use of cutting-edge technology during live sets.
The band will perform plenty of classic Stones hits such as “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumping Jack Flash”, “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll”, combined with lesser known gems, plus a couple of unexpected cover versions.
Mr. George Tanasijevich, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “Marina Bay Sands is proud to bring the legendary rock band to Singapore. The intimate setting in the Grand Ballroom will give Stones fans a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the show in a club like atmosphere.”
Credit cards at the ready folks, this one is going to sell out fast. No, even faster than that.
