Mick Jagger said in a statement, “Can’t wait to reconnect with all our friends in Australia & New Zealand. It’s been a while since we’ve played to you all, so we are looking forward to being back on stage & playing your favourite songs.”
“We all had such a ball this year and so we wanted to keep it going,” added Keith Richards. “The energy between the band is better than ever and we’re all looking forward to coming back Down Under. I can’t wait to get back on the stage with the boys.”
Fans will also have an option for a limited selection of “lucky dip” seats for $99. The Lucky Dip seats could be anywhere at the show including the most expensive seats.
The tour will be presented by Michael Gudisnki’s Frontier Touring. “It’s been a life long ambition of mine to bring the legendary Stones back down under and I cannot say how excited I am about their 2014 tour,” he said. “With just one night only confirmed for each city plus a very special one-off concert at Hanging Rock, this tour will be talked about for decades to come.”
The Rolling Stones last toured Australia in 2006 for the A Bigger Bang tour.
