Rolling Stones announce 2005 World Tour

To the tune of "Start Me Up," the Rolling Stones played an energetic, three-song set on a stage outside The Juilliard School in Manhattan yesterday to announce their 2005 world tour.

The set also featured a new song, "Oh No, Not You Again" and ended with "Brown Sugar."

The year-long tour begins Aug. 21 in Boston and comes to the New York area Sept. 15 at Giants Stadium. Tickets for that show go on sale May 23 through Ticketmaster. Dates at smaller theaters and clubs are also planned. Prices will be about 10% higher than the previous tour in 2002, said tour promoter Michael Cohl, ranging from $99 to $110.

One new wrinkle: On-stage seating for about 400 people at each stadium show. Some of those seats can be won through Rolling Stones fan club contests, according to the band's website.

Yesterday's mini-performance may have been The Stones' answer to U2, which announced its recent tour with a much-publicized show under the Brooklyn Bridge. The Juilliard show marked the first time the band performed at a press event since 1975, when they played "Brown Sugar" on a flatbed truck on Fifth Avenue.

After the performance, singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, both 61, joined drummer Charlie Watts, 63, and guitarist Ron Wood, 57, to answer questions. Jagger said the band will "dig into the catalogue" for this tour and also play songs from its upcoming album.

Jagger wouldn't say whether this would be the band's final tour. "We take every tour as it comes," he said.

I saw them on their Steel Wheel(chairs)s tour back in the early 90s. They were horrid. I did like Living Colour opening for them, though.

Mick looked old then. I believe only Keith Richards can pull it off as he has been dead since 1975.

Did Mick knock up another supermodel somewhere, and needs to support that one now, too?

Mick looked old 25 years ago. It looked like his face caught on fire and they put it out with a hatchet.
