THE ROLLING STONES ANNOUNCE SURPRISE GIG
AT ECHOPLEX IN LOS ANGELES TONIGHT
Legendary rock band The Rolling Stones will kick off the 2013 portion of their 50 and
Counting Tour in earnest on May 3rd at Los Angeles, CA; but that won't be their first gig
of the year. The rockers have just announced a surprise show at Echoplex in Los
Angeles that will take place this evening.
The band has been rehearsing for the tour in LA and clearly want to dust off the cobwebs
before next weekend. Los Angeles Rolling Stones fans are in a prime location for the tour
as besides tonight's warmup, there's two upcoming shows a piece at Staples Center and
Anaheim's Honda Center.
While whenever the Stones announce a tour a big story are the exorbitant ticket prices,
you can't accuse the group of not taking care of fans tonight as face value for the
valuable ducats is only $20. A lottery was held at the El Rey Theatre this afternoon for
which attendees could only purchase one ticket a piece in an attempt to thwart scalping.
As you can imagine, tickets for the show at the tiny club sold out with a quickness.
