Rolling Stones to Offer a Few More $85 Seats

rolling-stones-announce-north-american-tour-datesAfter whipping Los Angeles into a frenzy over the weekend by playing a “surprise” club show at the Echoplex on Saturday, today the Rolling Stones announced that a small number of the hard to come by $85 tickets may become available for some venues after production sets up the show. If you are interested in trying to obtain these tickets, which are only available in pairs and must be picked up in person with a valid I.D., register here to be notified if any become available.

For those of us who couldn’t get into Saturday’s show, take a look at Getty Images Photographer Kevin Mazur’s coverage of the rare club gig here. Celebrity guests in attendance included Johnny Depp, No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani, Bruce Willis, Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen and star of the CBS hit show, NCIS, actor Mark Harmon.

The Stones kick off their 50 & Counting Tour this Friday, May 3rd at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Saturday night’s setlist included the following songs. I’m sure fans of the band can expect to hear these along with many other great songs rotated into the set as the tour gets under way. The only special guest the band have confirmed to date is guitarist Mick Taylor.

You Got Me Rocking
Respectable
She’s So Cold
Live With Me
Street Fighting Man
That’s How Strong My Love Is
Little Queenie
Just My Imagination
Miss You
Love In Vain (with Mick Taylor)

Grrr! is available now via the Rolling Stones store in a variety of formats including the standard, deluxe and super deluxe editions, t-shirts and digitally via iTunes for those who need immediate “Satisfaction”. Check for concert tickets for your city here

The Rolling Stones Ready to Kick Off 50 & Counting Tour; Depeche Mode Announce Surprise FREE Show at Troubadour

It’s a great time for fans of iconic rock bands like the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Depeche Mode all of whom are set to launch tours in the next couple weeks.

The Rolling Stones have set up shop in Los Angeles where they began rehearsals for their “50 & Counting” North American Tour last week. The tour is scheduled to kick-off May 2nd* at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles (*date tentative due NHL playoff scheduling).

Speculation of a “surprise” nightclub show in the Los Angeles area have Rolling Stones fans running rabid at the mouth as they try to plot the iconic bands next moves. The Rolling Stones have traditionally done a “surprise warm-up” show at a large nightclub or small theater before they kick off a tour. Excitement is high as the Stones have rarely kicked off a North American Tour on the West Coast.

The Rolling Stones 2013 Tour Dates can be found here along with links to purchase tickets. Don’t miss your chance to be part of music history! Grab your tickets before they are gone.

“GRRR!”, the latest from the Rolling Stones featuring two new songs titled “Doom and Gloom” and “One More Shot” is available now on iTunes.

Legendary English 80’s band, Depeche Mode, have kicked off the week with the announcement of a FREE show this Friday, April 26, 2013 at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA. The ONLY way in to this tiny, tiny show is to win tickets from Los Angeles radio station, the world-famous KROQ 106.7. Depeche Mode will be playing to an audience of just 400 people, the most smallest show they have ever played in Los Angeles. This will be their surprise warm up show before they launch their world tour on May 4th in France. Don’t fret (well not too much anyway) if you don’t win tickets to see them this week because they will return to Los Angeles at the end of September for three shows at the Staples Center. A full list of tour dates can be found on the Depeche Mode site. Their latest album, “Delta Machine” is out on iTunes now.

Sir Paul McCartney is also in Los Angeles rehearsing for his “Out There” tour which also kicks off May 4th in South America before heading to North America for a tour along with a handful of scheduled European dates. Stop by his site for more information.

The 2013 concert season is shaping up to be a hell of a good ride with so many rock legends hitting the road this year. Now if we could just get our hands on the winning lotto numbers so we could check out all of these amazing artists touring this year we’d be set. Check back as Life On The Scene hopes to bring you coverage of some of these great shows this year!

Who are you most excited to see this year on the concert trail? Let us know in the comments below. We’d love to hear from you.

Billy Idol To Play KLOS Christmas Show

Billy Idol

There may still be a handful of tickets left for these upcoming Billy Idol shows across California! Why not treat someone to an early holiday gift or great night out?

Tickets are on sale now for all shows via Ticketmaster/Live Nation.

Singer Billy Idol will headline Mark & Brian’s annual Christmas Show for classic rock station KLOS 95.5 on December 16, 2010 at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

The KLOS pre-sale begins on Thursday, November 4th with the public on sale beginning on Saturday, November 6th via Ticketmaster. A portion of the proceeds will go to support the Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center.

Mark & Brian will open the show with their all-star band including Paul Rodgers, Steve Lukather, Peter Frampton, John Waite, Michael Anthony and Jason Bonham. Comedian Ron White will get the evening started. Tune in to Mark & Brian on KLOS 95.5 every morning as they are sure to have an interview with Billy Idol before the big Christmas show and likely to give away some great concert tickets to the event.

Billy Idol will close out 2010 with a handful of Holiday shows in mid December around California including:

  • Wed 12/15 San Diego, CA: House of Blues 
  • Thurs 12/16 Los Angeles, CA : Nokia Theater
  • Sat 12/18 Ventura, CA: Ventura Theater
  • Mon 12/20 San Francisco, CA: Fillmore
  • Tues 12/21 San Francisco, CA: Fillmore

Tickets are on sale now for all shows via Ticketmaster/Live Nation.

Billy Idol also has his self-penned memoir, Dancing With Myself, in the works which is due out from Touchstone, a division of Simon & Schuster in late 2011 or early 2012. Idol has never shied away from the truth of his rock & roll lifestyle so this is likely to be a great tell all unlike many of the glossed over auto-biographies we tend to see.

Idol also debuted several new tracks during his summer 2010 tour including one called Love Is Strange. Expect a new album & tour by the end of next year as well.
