Rolling Stones Talk Tour Preparations
April 23, 2013


The Rolling Stones
With The Rolling Stones' 50 and Counting tour kickoff set to take place in Los Angeles on May 2, the veteran band is well into their rehearsal regimen. "Personally, I start preparing about two months before the tour starts," Mick Jagger said in an interview with CBS television. "So I have to up my fitness level and I have to start singing everyday, doing practices and a bit of dancing. I practice in front of mirrors, if I can, at a dance studio."

Drummer
Charlie Watts also noted how the band has to prepare double the material for these special 50th anniversary shows, which requires twice as much stamina. "The process we go through for a tour is six weeks rehearsal usually," said Watts, "to have twice as many numbers ready to play, and to be twice as fit as you need to be for two hours."

The North American run will hit Los Angeles, Oakland, San Jose, Las Vegas, Anaheim, Toronto, Chicago, Montreal and Boston before wrapping in Philadelphia on June 21. The rockers will then head to the Glastonbury Festival in England for a headlining set on June 29, as well as two July show in London's Hyde Park, which will be their first in that location since 1969.

As previously reported, The Rolling Stones documentary film Crossfire Hurricane will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray as of May 21. Bonus features on the DVD and Blu-Ray edition include previously unreleased concert footage -- Live in Germany '65 -- a new interview with director Brett Morgen, footage from The Arthur Haynes Show in 1964, and the theatrical trailer.
