Stones Announce Semi-Secret Show

Petco Park hosts Rolling Stones on Sunday

    San Diego was slated to host the Rolling Stones for the opening night of their first tour in years, and while that show is still a go at Petco Park on Sunday, the band announced an extra date on Wednesday.

    The iconic rock & roll band announced Wednesday that they would be playing a club show that night in Los Angeles. While the L.A. Weekly reported that the show would be at the Fonda Theatre, that has not been confirmed by the band. However, Shakey Graves, who was slated to play the Fonda on Wednesday, announced via a press release that his show was moved to the Belasco.

    The announcement on the Stones’ website stated that the band would be playing every song from their revered 1971 album, “Sticky Fingers,” which peaked at the No. 1 spot on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

    Rumor has it that those who scored the tickets -- which sold out in minutes -- shelled out all of $5 apiece (plus a $5 service charge). For context, that’s roughly $1,995 less than some tickets for the Petco Park stadium show are going for.
