The wrinkly rockers are pencilled in for the first show in the rebuilt arena...
The ROLLING STONES look set to be the first band to play at the new WEMBLEY STADIUM on a tour scheduled for 2006.
The veteran band, who toured last year to celebrate their 40th anniversary, plan to hit the road again, and want the tour to culminate at the £750 million stadium in north-west London.
A source close to the stadium told today’s (September 22) Sun newspaper: “The Stonesare determined to tour again in 2006.
“They will warm up in Toronto and have their homecoming at Wembley. It has been planned so they will be the first band to play at the new stadium.”
“In front of 90,000 people the noise will be deafening. It will be such a special experience for the fans and the band. Their last tour was to celebrate 40 years together and they enjoyed it so much they all feel they have another left in them.
“People might joke about them being wrinkly old blokes but they are still one of the best – if not the best – rock ‘n’ roll group out there.
“The atmosphere will be electric and Mick and the boys can’t wait.”
