Are the Rolling Stones going artisanal?
After watching tickets to their four-date 50th anniversary tour sell like hotcakes, the Stones have announced that they’ll be playing an additional fifth show for fans — in Brooklyn.
According the band’s site, Mick and the boys will be playing the borough’s new Barclays Center on Dec. 8, the Saturday before their two dates at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. (The first two concerts of the band’s victory lap will take place at London’s O2 Arena.) Presale tickets for the Brooklyn show begin tomorrow at 10 a.m. EST, while general tickets will be up for grabs starting the morning of Monday, Nov. 19.
And they’re not the only Brits invading Brooklyn that month: Coldplay recently announced that they, along with Jay-Z, will be playing Barclays Center on New Year’s Eve.
