The British group returns to play in the city-state after 11 years.
LEGENDARY British rockers The Rolling Stones will be back in Singapore to perform at the Sands Grand Ballroom, Marina Bay Sands, on March 15.
The gig, part of their worldwide 14 ON FIRE tour, will feature the classic line-up of singer Mick Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards, drummer Charlie Watts and guitarist Ronnie Wood. All of them have played with the band since it started out in the early 1960s, except for Wood, who joined in 1975.
Guitarist Mick Taylor, who played with the band from 1969 to 1974, will also feature as a guest.
Best known for defining rock standards such as (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, Paint It Black and It’s Only Rock ’N Roll (But I Like It), the performance will be their first here since they played two nights at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in March 2003.
Ticket prices at S$250, S$400, S$550 and S$700 will go on sale on Friday at Marina Bay Sands Theatre and SkyPark Box Offices as well as through Sistic (www.sistic.com.sg). – The Straits Times, Singapore/Asia News Network
