RUMOR: Rolling Stones to play live in November

While the Rolling Stones tease that a big announcement in on the way, Billboard is reporting a rumor that the band will play a series of concerts this fall.

A source tells the music industry magazine that the Stones will play four dates in November - two at London's O2 Arena and two at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The source claims the Stones will be paid $25 million for the four shows, which will be co-promoted by Richard Branson and Australian promoter Paul Dainty.

In the meantime, the Stones have posted a teaser on their Facebook page, saying that “On Ruby Tuesday 4th September, some news is coming.”

If the series of fall dates is announced, it would sync up with comments made earlier this year by Mick Jagger, who said the Stones would be playing “in the autumn.”

The concerts would mark the first shows of the band’s 50th Anniversary tour.
