Despite reports that The Rolling Stones will be hitting the road this year, the band recently denied such allegations. The Stones have been tied up in a legal dispute with LiveNation chairman Michael Cohl for “Breach of Contract”, but are no longer contractually obligated to Cohl.
[photogallerylink id=1615 align=right] [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Rolling Stones[/lastfm] released a statement yesterday in London that read:
“In light of recent reports surrounding the ‘Breach of Contract’ Court Case in America between Live Nation Entertainment and former LiveNation chairman Michael Cohl, The Rolling Stones wish to clarify their position regarding representation and touring.
Following the end of the 2007 A Bigger Bang world tour, The Rolling Stones became free from any contractual arrangements or agreements with Michael Cohl. He is neither their representative nor their tour promoter.
Also, the Stones confirmed today they have no firm plans to tour at this time. The Rolling Stones have recently secured a worldwide Merchandising agreement with Bravado Inc and in 2008 signed a new global record deal with Universal Music.”
So it appears for now anyway that The Rolling Stones will not be touring anytime soon and fans of the band will have to patiently wait.
Where to next?
