The Rolling Stones are rolling into London!

On November 25 and 29th, 2012 a Rolling Stones concert will take place at the O2 Arena in London, UK. The Rolling Stones are playing as part of their 50th Anniversary Celebrations, a historic concert for rock and rollers of any generation.

Tickets went fast upon initial release, selling out it merely 7 minutes, leaving many fans out of luck. However, sometimes additional numbers of tickets are released; so you should double-check to see if there are any Rolling Stones London tickets available. If so, you can be in attendance alongside a packed house of other screaming Rolling Stone fans.

The Rolling Stones are a timeless act. Fifty years strong and still just as popular as ever, they continue to bring excitement wherever they go. London, the where the band began in 1962, is one of only 2 locations to be chosen to host this historic concert, and the only location in the UK.

The Stones couldn’t have picked a more gorgeous and historical venue to host the concert; the O2 Arena is responsible for housing the 2012 Summer Olympics, so it knows how to entertain. The O2 Arena is the 2nd largest arena in the entire UK, and also one of the biggest arenas in all of Europe. In 2008, the O2 Arena grasped the title of “World’s Busiest Music Arena” , making it the most logical choice for the Rolling Stones to host this special concert event.

Though the Rolling Stones have expressed interest in continuing touring, even after this 50th anniversary concert special, it’s still easily one of the biggest events of the year in pop culture. The Stones are responsible for producing a total of 8 #1 hits in the UK alone, to go along with 8 #1 hits in the U.S. In 1989, the Rolling Stones were welcomed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They were also chosen as the #4 Greatest Artist of all time in Rolling Stone’s magazine “Top 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.”

Among the popularity of this great band continues to be front man Mick Jagger. He still rocks hard enough to please the ears of any rock enthusiast! Keith Richards still rocks the house on the guitar, with his iconic style.

Fifty historic years of iconic music, 50 years of hit after hit, 50 years of iconic style, and 50 years of concerts have all led up to this single event.
