The Rolling Stones just won't quit. International tour promoter SFX Entertainment
expects to mount a tour by the group in 2001.
While there are no definitive details at the moment, SFX chairman Robert F.X. Sillerman
made this revelation to financial managers and stockholders upon the issuance of SFX's
first quarterly earnings report for 2000.
Kings at the box office, the Rolling Stones have repeatedly taken the No. 1-grossing
spot for each successive tour they've launched since 1989 with Steel Wheels ($98 million),
1994 with Voodoo Lounge ($119 million), 1997 with Bridges to
Babylon ($89.5 million), and 1999 with No Security ($64.7 million), an all-arena tour.
