Legendary rock and roll band, The Rolling Stones, has just finished playing a small warm up gig for their fans in Paris, France on Thursday. The event was said to “test the waters” and see how fans will respond to the group, who have been absent from the music scene since 2007. Fans who were lucky enough to be at this intimate concert said that the Stones were amazing.

The Rolling Stones band is one of the most recognizable singing groups in rock music history. The group was formed in the United Kingdom and became a monumental hit in the United States. The group’s mammoth fame is attributed to its lead singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, two incredible musicians that are the creative force behind memorable performances and iconic songs.

The Rolling Stones have sold more than 200 million records. Some of their hits include “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, and “Street Fighting Man”. The band’s greatest hits collections, “GRRR” includes two new songs: “One More Shot” and “Doom and Gloom”.

In the last decade, the group has derived so much income from touring the globe. Their last world tour between 2005 and 2007, “A Bigger Bang”, brought the group more than $500 million.

This iconic band recently announced that it is returning to the concert stage with four concerts this year. The concerts will be held at O2 Arena in London on the 25th and the 29th of November for the UK leg and on the 13th and 15th of December at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center for the U.S. leg of the tour.

The concerts are aimed to be the a crowning glory celebration of the band’s 50th Anniversary. It will also mark the first time that the group will be performing live after five years. It will be a sort of a reunion for the band’s Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts to be performing together again.

For this year’s tour to mark its 50th anniversary, tour organizers promise a new set design that will be entirely different from previous concert designs. The group does not plan to perform in a wide tour although the December 15th concert will be made available to a wider audience through pay-per view TV.

While Mick Jagger and Keith Richards had endured some testy times in their relationship, the two had appeared civil enough during the gigs that celebrated the band’s 50th anniversary. Don’t miss your chance to see the Rolling Stones live on stage. Reserve your tickets early!
