Stones 50th anniversary tour?

TIME IS ON THEIR SIDE: Although media reports have focused on the Rolling Stones apparently gearing up for a 50th anniversary tour next year, the band itself has denied that it is imminent (see above item). The initial speculation originated  from the legal battle being waged between the band’s longtime tour organizer Michael Cohl and Live Nation, Reuters reports. LN sued Cohl for $5.35 million for allegedly breaching the terms of an agreement made when he was forced out of the company in 2008. But in a countersuit, Cohl claims that LN first breached the contract by attempting to "interfere" and "destroy" his opportunity to procure promotional rights to the next Stones tour. Last February, Live Nation sent Cohl a letter informing him that it was going to bid against Cohl for the tour. The company followed up with an email stating that Cohl could still pursue the band's tour, but only through a joint venture. LN also wanted Cohl to detail his negotiations with the Stones, which Cohl says would give the concert power key info that could be used to undercut his own bid. (2/2a)
