dob99 The Stones might come to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, but only in 2006. It seems that the promoters in Montreal have offered many dates and they are waiing for the Stones to decide whether or not they will come here... That is what we can read in La Presse newspapers in Montreal. Here is the link and the article (in French), for those you can read it:,144,244,062005,1063658.php

Les Stones à Montréal en 2006?
Alexandre Vigneault
La Presse

Une lueur d'espoir vient de naître pour les fans des Rolling Stones. Montréal pourrait finalement figurer sur l'horaire de tournée des vénérables rockeurs britanniques. Peut-être pas dès l'automne prochain, mais sans doute quelque part en 2006. « C'est loin d'être mort, affirme Myriam Vallée, porte-parole du Groupe Spectacles Gillett. Nous sommes confiants d'avoir une date. »

Le mois dernier, Donald Tarlton, coproducteur des concerts des Stones à Ottawa et à Moncton, a affirmé que le calendrier actuel excluait toute visite à Montréal dans le cadre de la première partie de la tournée. Myriam Vallée dit aujourd'hui que le Groupe Spectacles Gillett a soumis plusieurs dates au producteur américain, dont l'une à l'automne 2005. « Il y a toujours eu beaucoup de discussions et il y en a encore beaucoup. Il s'agit maintenant de savoir s'ils veulent mettre Montréal sur leur carte », résume Myriam Vallée.

Lors du dévoilement de l'itinéraire de la première partie de leur nouvelle tournée, les Stones ont affirmé vouloir se produire dans des villes où ils n'avaient pas fait résonner leurs guitares depuis des lustres. D'où leur intérêt à se produire à Moncton le 3 septembre et à Ottawa le 28 août.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts et Ronnie Wood, dont la moyenne d'âge est de 61 ans, entreprendront le 21 août une tournée mondiale qui les mènera dans une trentaine de villes nord-américaines. Le groupe se produira également au Mexique, en Europe et en Asie du Sud-Est tout au long de l'année prochaine. L'annonce de discussions en vue d'un éventuel concert à Montréal donne toutes les raisons de croire que d'autres concerts auront lieu en Amérique du Nord dans le cadre de cette tournée.

Est-ce que le Groupe Spectacles Gillett a l'intention d'embaucher Les Trois Accords pour faire la première partie de Stones au Centre Bell, s'il obtient une date? « Je les aime beaucoup, admet Myriam Vallée, mais nous n'en sommes vraiment pas encore là! »

Lazy Bones Huh. Montreal was also the first show of the new year for the Licks Tour.

Why anyone would want to play anywhere in Canada east of Vancouver in January is beyond me...

jb Hopefully a better showing than Toronto ....thousands of stadium tickets left, despite loyalty Stones have shown this city....shameful

gimmekeef Whats so shameful about people refusing to pay $450 ea for a Monday night stadium show? 95% of all other tickets are sold with months before the show.Plus Ottawa sold 40,000 in minutes and many of those fans would normally have attended the Toronto show.Lets also not forget that 450,000 people saw the boys not long ago on a night they were less than "The Greatest" and at $20 a pop...

Stones in Montreal in 2006?
Alexandre Vigneault The Press

A glimmer of hope has just been born for the fans from Rolling Stones. Montreal could finally be reproduced on the schedule of round of the worthy British rockeurs. Perhaps not as of the nearest autumn, but undoubtedly some share in 2006. "It is far from to have died," affirms Myriam Vallée, spokesman of the Group Gillett Spectacles. "We are trustful to have a date " Last month, Donald Tarlton, coproducer in the concerts of Stones in Ottawa and Moncton, affirmed that the current calendar excluded any visit in Montreal within the framework from the first left the round. Myriam Vallée says today that the Group Gillett Spectacles submitted several dates to the American producer, of which one with autumn 2005. "There always were many discussions and there is still much of it. It is now a question of knowing if they want to put Montreal on their chart ", summarizes Myriam Vallée. At the time of the revealing of the route of the first part of their new round, Stones affirmed to want to occur in cities where they had not made resound their guitars since glosses. From where their interest to occur in Moncton on September 3 and Ottawa on August 28. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, whose average age is 61 years, will on undertake August 21 a world round which will carry out them in about thirty North-American cities. The group will also occur in Mexico, in Europe and Southeast Asia throughout the next year. The advertisement of discussions for a possible concert in Montreal gives all the reasons to believe that other concerts will take place in North America within the framework of this round. Does the Group Gillett Spectacles intend to engage the Three Agreements to make the first part of Stones in the Bell Center, if it obtains a date? "I like them much, admits Myriam Vallée, but let us really not be we yet there!"
