The Rolling Stones ‘not signing to Madonna and Jay-Z’s label’

Band say they have had no contact with Live Nation

The Rolling Stones, whose contract with record label EMI expired in February this year, have denied that they are set to sign a multi-million pound record deal with concert promoter Live Nation.

Rumours that The Rolling Stones were set to sign with Live Nation – with whom the likes of Madonna and Jay-Z have lucrative contracts – were circulating on Sunday (June 15).

However, the band have since issued a statement denying they have had any contact with the company.

The statement read: “We are not in talks with Live Nation in connection with any record deal”.
