SET TO ROCK THE SHANGHAI MERCEDES-BENZ ARENA - 12 MARCH 2014
The Rolling Stones have announced today that they will play a one off show at the Shanghai Mercedes-Benz Arena on 12 March 2014 as part of their 14 ON FIRE tour presented by Prudential and Eastspring Investments.
The 14 ON FIRE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road across Asia, Australia and New Zealand following a mammoth run of concerts in the U.S and the U.K in 2013, bringing their iconic music and groundbreaking stage shows to audiences around the globe.
Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-1974, will be a special guest for this tour.
The stage design for the Shanghai concert is based on the band’s ubiquitous tongue and lips logo, which extends out into the audience. Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.
The Rolling Stones were recently crowned the ‘Best Live Band” at the NME Awards in London, and over the past 12 months have thrilled fans with the release of a ground-breaking new documentary, ‘Crossfire Hurricane’, a greatest hits collection, ‘GRRR!’, a massive US tour and a ground-breaking, back to back, sold out set of two historic Hyde Park concerts in the UK in front of 120,000, which are chronicled in a new concert film ‘Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live’.
Tickets go on sale on Monday 20th January at 5pm, Beijing time, and are available fromwww.RollingStones.com/tickets
