Yeah I agree with that, it's too late in the game to name an 'official' Rolling Stone. Anyway I think RONNIE will get his act together by the time the tour begins. There's enough time for a long stay at rehab, and I know RONNIE will force his ass in gear, he isnt THAT stupid!!  


Read back a few posts, E... It appears there IS no tour, according to an official announcement.

Ronnie, unfortunately, is VERY stupid.


Well I dont believe it, they just dont want to announce anything yet because it's too early! They always keep it quiet so they can make a big splashy announcement with a big Press Conf. so if it leaks out early, then it's no big news when it happens!

When was the last time any act - let alone the Stones - went to the trouble of issuing a statement to announce that they WOULDNT be touring? They usually don't announce anything at all!

You dont find it even slightly believable that recent events would indicate a possibility of some risk to a tour happening with all of the current band members ?

There are three seperate occasions in that Daily Mail story where it says that this confirmation comes from the band themselves - not the usual 'a source says' or 'according to an insider' nonsense that the media usually hide behind when theyre either making something up or twisting the words of someone who doesn't want to be named.

My gut feeling is that
a) Jagger is desperate to distance the Band from Ronnie's mess and the daily barrage of bad press.
b) Ronnie is uninsurable and won't be for a long time.


I knew they'd never replace Ronnie. It's too late in the game.
So we wait. Again.
We fucking wait knowing time is not on our side.

2011-2012 to coincide with the 50th Anniversary makes the most sense to me if this story is, indeed, true.

Fuck

Putting aside Ronnie's alcohol issues, does his admission of guilt and caution for assault impact his ability to obtain a work visa?

Oh crap Gazza, do you want me to give up? Nah, I'm still hoping for a tour announcment later this year, in spite of the 'band statements' given now, more 'band statements' can come out later. Sadly, you are usually right, but I refuse to believe it, not yet anyway!

Both of the above, plus

c) To use the great IanBillen's phrase, "the clock is ticking" and the chances of getting Woody ready to be of any use to the band in the studio or on a concert stage in 2010 is getting more remote with every successive bottle of vodka he's pouring down his throat.

Too many hurdles to jump over in too short a time. A Stones tour in 2010 was rapidly turning into a disaster waiting to happen. A fucked world economy, record sales at their lowest ever ebb and a guitarist whose short term future is at serious risk and who clearly is too much of a liability in every way at present.

Give it to 2011 and hopefully everything will be in better shape and everyone better prepared. At least the press statement only said "at the moment".

I hope for your sake and everyone on here that you ARE right. That said, I'd prefer that the band go on the road when theyre ready - no matter how long it takes. Surely none of us wants to see a trainwreck.

I'm only going by whats said in what appears to be a statement from the Stones PA people (presumably it came from Fran Curtis or Bernard Doherty). Looks convincing enough to me.

It's only a matter of time before we see a Youtube video of Ronnie slurring his speech, trying to eat a burger.

Is this true? Did I just read somewhere that Ronnie was doing lines with Ekat? Jeebus!!!

I wish him the best but the whole rehab thing has become a joke.

Well I think that might apply more to Europe than the USA. Other than on Stones fan sites you hear very little of the Ronnie mess over here and I honestly don't think it would affect ticket sales much. Probably more a matter of Ronnie just not being in shape. Too bad Keith couldn't step up and take more of a role. Either talking to Ronnie himself, suggesting a decent replacement to Mick. Or just stepping up his own playing.  Sadly it looks as though he meakly stepping aside and leaving it all up to Mick to decide. Maybe we're better off without a tour.

How come there's nothing on the official site?  Shit! Yeah, I know how we feel about RS.com, but you'd expect news like that to be on their site and not just in tabloids... Weird.

Well, if there's anything positive in this turn of events, is that my credit cards just sighed a huge breath of relief, lol  Ouch!
No, seriously, as mentioned this will coincide with their 50 years, more time for them and us to prepare, more time for a possible new album (I can still hope) and much more time for Woody to pull his act together. Every cloud has a silver lining Ronnie, so stop the  Let's go get drunk  Fuck you Gazza, Will ya?

So no tour.... doh, but I agree with Gazza we don't want a train wreck either, so at least we got each other to keep us going.

I say open the vaults, use the year to write some great new stuff, shit who am I kidding?

Happy new year to you all by the way, was really looking forward to planning a trip to MSG.  You rock!  Let's go get drunk

They didnt put the denial about Charlie on their site either, and didnt exactly keep us up to date a couple of years ago with what was happening with the Euro tour post-Fiji so thats nothing new.

If there isn't a t-shirt to commemorate it or potential for a 'No 2010 Tour Monster Truck' mailshot, then forget about it.

I suppose they could always make a killing in "Ronnie and Ekaterina Voodoo Dolls" for frustrated fans if they wanted.

All very true. A 2010-2012 trek (if thats what was planned) seemed a bit long anyway.

So all we will get will be a geriatric, war horse farewell tour.

Could we even think we'd get anything special? Nah. They've got enough money and know they cant possible handle an extensive 18 mth world tour. There's nothing to prove and i doubt even a "this is the last time" tour would generate much excitement.

And the U.S. is stuffed. They cant tour there as no one can afford to go. And you just know they wont drop prices. Without a booming U.S. tour to make a tour break even, they will not venture out of their various mansions.

Ladies and Gentlemen...they is fading away. They IS gathering moss.

Like it or not, for all intensive purposes, ABB was THE farewell tour.

Corgi my friend, if we are to be completely honest with ourselves, they have been doing that for quite some time now, haven't they? Long before ABB, one might say even before Bridges to Babylon.
