THE ROLLING STONES have announced plans for a free concert in LOS ANGELES next year.

The band want to raise awareness for the National Resources Defence Council (NRDC) and its battle against global warming.

The concert will take place on February 6 at the Staples Centre.

The NRDC president John H Adams said the Stones “deserve a standing ovation for putting the environment on centre stage”.
