Topic: Secret Gig - Shepherds Bush Empire in two weeks Return to archive

chris According to The Sun today, the Stones are playing a gig at Shepperds Bush Empire in two weeks time !

Jaxx yeah. that teeny tiny little bit in the margin on dominic monahan's "bizarre page". hopefully there will be details released shortly to validate the claim.
07-09-02 02:01 PM
Stones July 12th is upon us, any rumours of a " Secret Gig " that night ?
07-09-02 03:22 PM
SERGEI THIS GIG WONT HAPPEN
07-09-02 03:28 PM
Gazza The article actually said "in the next FEW weeks" not "Two". ... that could literally be anytime between late july and the end of August

As they havent even started rehearsing for the tour yet, I seriously doubt they'd be ready to go near a concert stage until the start of August,even if they started rehearsing tomorrow. As theyre supposed to be in Toronto pretty soon, seems strange for them to break that midway through and jet off to London for one gig and back again (although the anniversary aspect of the show makes it feasible,its logistically quite strange!)

Dominic Mohan's usually a good source on breaking Stones stories,so it seems quite likely it'll happen.

Whether there'd be too many "proper" fans at it is another thing....

Maybe its time those idiots at the "official" fan club began to realise there are actually Stones fans living OUTSIDE the US and Canada and arranged a fan club ticket allocation for this show like they did for even the theatre shows in the US? Somehow i doubt it.

the full text of the article:

"I hear The Rolling Stones are planning a secret gig at London's Shepherds Bush Empire in the next few weeks. I dont have any more details at the moment but remember where you heard it first" (Dominic Mohan, "Bizarre" column, The Sun 9/7/02)

oska is there any way of obtaining tickets ? i will do ANYTHING !
07-09-02 03:42 PM
Honky Tonk Man Yes, this is indeed very exciting news. I hope to god its true. Maybe the Stones will be playing this gig before they head to Toronto?

Gazza Oska - "The Sun" was the ONLY source for this story. No one knows if it'll happen for sure let alone when it'll be or how we can obtain tickets. What I reprinted is all thats generally known. I hadnt even heard a whisper of this show until this morning!

I was lucky enough to get tickets for the 1999 show in the same venue. They just announced the news of the sale at Tower Records in Piccadilly the morning before the show on Virgin radio (Fortunately I'd heard about it a couple of days before and had arranged to get the first train from Sheffield that morning - where the Stones had been playing the night before).

Hopefully like the theatre shows in America,there'll be an online sale,but if its VERY short notice it may just be word of mouth,which basically means if youre not in london the day of the sale,tough shit. Ticket prices for the 1999 show were 10 cash - not bad value for the Stones PLUS Sheryl Crow as support act! As the prices for the club shows in the US have been very reasonable (around $53) I cant imagine this one being too expensive either,especially as its a warm up (the warm up show at the Double Door in Chicago in 97 only cost fans $7!!).

Gazza no problem,Oska, but the way these things are,others here might get the news and post it here before me!! I'm anxious to get to this show too,although as Im in Belfast,I'm not exactly handy to London if theres a sudden announcement about a sale going on at some record store in the capital!

Send me a private message using the private message facility or e-mail me at Gazza@stones.com
