The Rolling Stones announce a Los Angeles warm-up show, TONIGHT!
Holy shit! The Rolling Stones are playing the Echoplex tonight! Yes, you read that correctly — the Rolling Stones are playing one of the most underground and intimate venues in East Hollywood, in the little hood of Echo Park. This news is even hard for us to swallow.
Yesterday, the Rolling Stones Tweeted “If you’re not following @GRRRegory already, now is a good time to start! The Rolling Stones’ GRRRilla has exciting news for you.” After that, the big fat gorilla known as @GRRRegory was dropping hints all day long:
“Saturday morning and you’ll see me down the park … Bout 12 ‘o’ clock you’ll see me in the road,Telling everybody where the boys all go”
“On Saturday night she bass-a-dee…She stepping high on Frederick’s Street …Dance, dance, little sister, dance”
“Located somewhere in Los Angeles, California … And next week they’d say my prayer on the radio … And all my dreams would come true”
“Grrrreat things are brewing! Watch this space at 12.30pm PT tomorrow for some news… #Stones50″
In October, the Rolling Stones played a $20 intimate warm-up show to kick off their 50 & Counting Tour in Paris. What better way for the Rolling Stones to kick off their North American 50 & Counting tour, than with a warm-up show in Los Angeles.
Tickets to the Rolling Stones at the Echoplex will go on sale at the El Rey at noon!
