The Rolling Stones have unveiled that they will be touring the Far East and Asia in 2014 with the 14 On Fire tour. The tour kicks off with a very special one-off show in Abu Dhabi on February 21, 2014 before heading out on the road across the Far East and Asia where Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood play three shows in Tokyo and a one-off show in Macau. The rock icons will then travel to Australia and New Zealand for one-off shows in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Hanging Rock, Brisbane and Auckland. Two larger concerts in Asia will be announced soon.
Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-1974, will be a special guest for this tour.
The stage design for the indoor concerts is based on the band’s ubiquitous tongue and lips logo, which extends out into the crowd, allowing the Stones to interact directly with their audience. The exclusive ‘Tongue Pit’ GA Standing area inside the stage will give fans in this area an incomparable 360 degree concert experience. The Stones’ set design will also feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.
Primary tickets for three shows at the Tokyo Dome are now on sale.
