Jaxx Fans line up for 'secret' Rolling Stones Toronto show
Aug. 16, 2002 11:02:00

TORONTO - As secrets go, it's probably the worst kept one in town.

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger appears at a May 7 news conference in New York to announce the band's 40th anniversary world tour, including Toronto stops.

Hundreds of fans began lining up overnight for an unannounced performance by the Rolling Stones, with some coming from as far away as Maryland and Ohio to see the legendary rockers after hearing rumors about the show.

The fans were afforded quick glimpses of their idols as they slipped into the Palais Royale ballroom for the show on Friday. Some clamored for autographs from Mick Jagger, who chatted on a cell phone outside the venue.

''I drove a long way to get here today, man, for the gig,'' ''Streetkid Dave'' from Cleveland, Ohio told Canadian television.

The band has been rehearsing, under tight security, at a Toronto school for their upcoming world tour. They were previously in Toronto to rehearse for their Voodoo Lounge tour in 1994 and the Bridges to Babylon tour in 1997.

The Rolling Stones traditionally play at a small club at the end of their Toronto rehearsals and the first lucky 1,000 fans will gain entry for only $10 (Canadian) on Friday night.

The veteran British rockers' world tour - their first in three years - begins in Boston on Sept. 3. The tour is also 40 years after the band staged its first public performance at London's Marquee Club in 1962, although the band had a different line-up then.

Stones to play surprise show
Palais Royale said to be site for pre-tour concert tonight
By Katherine Harding

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger appears at a May 7 news conference in New York to announce the band's 40th anniversary world tour, including Toronto stops.

The Rolling Stones will surprise their Toronto fans today with a secret show at an historic city venue.

Sources told The Star that Mick Jagger and his bandmates would definitely be headlining an unscheduled show at Palais Royale on Lake Shore Blvd. W. tonight.

The Stones' management would not confirm the gig.

"They are going to take the stage at 10 p.m.," said a Palais Royale representative yesterday.

Built in 1922, the dance hall hosted famous bandleaders, including Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey, over the years.

The wrinkly Brit rock group is in Toronto rehearsing for the LICKS tour, which begins Sept. 3 in Boston. They will make stops at the Air Canada Centre Oct. 16 and the SkyDome Oct. 18 to promote their new album Forty Licks, a two-CD career retrospective.

The Palais Royale representative said the surprise gig would be officially announced today, starting at 6 a.m. on local radio stations, including Q107.

He added that only 1,000 tickets would be sold, for $10 apiece. He wasn't sure how fans will be able to snag one of the precious tickets.

This isn't the first time the legendary 40-year-old rock group has treated Toronto fans to a secret show. It's actually starting to become a tradition.

They played at the El Mocambo in 1977 and the RPM club in 1994.

Five years ago, the group trotted out old hits including "Honky Tonk Woman," "Under My Thumb" and "19th Nervous Breakdown," now rarely heard in concert, to an intimate audience at the Horseshoe Tavern on Queen St. W.

Since the Stones pulled into town recently, rumours have run rampant about where and when a show might be held.

Rumours are also circulating that Revival, on College St., will play host to another Stones show tomorrow night for industry insiders. The club is denying the gossip, and said its popular "Mod Night" is still sche- duled.
