Stones to play four shows in 2012

GOT LIVE IF YOU WANT IT…IN 2012: The Rolling Stones will play four dates in November, two at London's O2 Arena and two at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, a source tells the bible. Richard Branson and Australian promoter Paul Dainty will promote, and the source says the Stones will be paid $25 million for the four shows. In July, Keith Richards dropped hints to the BBC about the band possibly doing some shows this year. "We're playing around with the idea and had a couple of rehearsals," he said. "We've got together, and it feels so good… There's things in the works; I think it's definitely happening. But when? I can't say yet." Said a source familiar with the deal on Rollingstone.com, “This was accomplished in a Navy SEAL-like operation. No one I knew whispered a word of this before yesterday.” (8/31a)
