    Stones' 40th Anniversary Tour Bows In Beantown

    The Rolling Stones will announce 32 dates for its year-long, 40th anniversary world tour today (May 7) at a press conference in New York's Van Cortland Park, Billboard Bulletin reports. The tour kicks off Sept. 5 at Boston's CMGI Stadium and will play a mixture of stadiums, arenas, theaters, and clubs, sometimes hitting as many as three venues in one market. Additionally, the tour will utilize three completely different productions and three unique setlists.

    Following the North American run, the Stones will play Mexico, Australia, the Far East, and Europe. The tour will end next September.

    The band lineup will be the same as 1998-99's Bridges To Babylon/No Security run: Mick Jagger (vocals), Keith Richards (guitar), Ron Wood (guitar), Charlie Watts (drums), Chuck Leavell (keyboards), and Darryl Jones (bass).

    The first small venue dates to be announced are the Orpheum Theater in Boston, the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, the Tower Theater in Philadelphia, the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, and the Roseland Ballroom in New York. Stadium tickets will be $50 and $90; arenas will be $50, $100, and $150; clubs and theaters will be $150, $125, $100, and $50.

    As first tipped here last October, Michael Cohl, under his Grand Entertainment Touring banner, will be the worldwide promoter for the trek, extending a relationship that began with 1989's Steel Wheels tour. Clear Channel Entertainment will also be on board.

    "My company will promote the tour and I'm the tour director, but Clear Channel are involved up to their elbows," Cohl says. "They will provide management and expertise for me in every market."

    The worldwide touring industry will be happy to see the Stones return to the road. The group contributed $750 million to gross touring revenues in the 1990s, selling out 307 of 333 mostly stadium shows. On its last outing, the Stones grossed $337.2 million and played to 5.6 million people.
