THE ROLLING STONES SIGN ON FOR '12-12-12' CONCERT

12/10/2012

The Rolling Stones are the latest band to sign on to perform at Wednesday's (December 12th) 12-12-12: A Concert For Sandy Relief. The Stones join a veritable list of rock's who's who, with co-headliners Paul McCartney, the Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Billy Joel, Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, Bon Jovi, Dave Grohl, and Eddie Vedder, among others. The show, which is expected to be seen by over two billion people, comes only three days before the Stones' own pay-per-view special on December 15th, which will catch the band live in concert at Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center.

Mick Jagger feels that after playing to such enormous crowds over the Stones career, the typical 20,000-seat arenas have turned into the small scale type shows the band actually prefers: "Well, I think a stadium show has to be a massive show because you can't really see that much. You have to have the most massive video, you have to have lots of stuff and keep the whole thing going. I mean, to me, a very good arena show -- if it's a good arena -- is relatively intimate. So, you're able to hold the audience, hopefully, without any kind of gimmicks. I mean, of course, it'll be fun to have a few. It's not really about that to me."
