So far, The Rolling Stones has thirteen dates scheduled for their 2019 US No Filter Tour. I live in the Orlando area. Twice, The Rolling Stones played in Orlando. Yet, for the No Filter Tour, Miami and Jacksonville are the only Florida cities scheduled.
Even tho I like their music, I was never a hardcore Rolling Stones fan. Yet, my late mother loved Mick Jagger.
Still, I do appreciate The Rolling Stones business sense. According to a 2002 Fortune article, from 1989 to 2002, the band raked in 1.5 billion dollars. This included record sales, touring, song rights and merchandise. During the No Filter Tour across the pond, the band made $10 million dollars a night.
Currently, band members are in their seventies. In the past years, folks question The Rolling Stones’ age. Are they too old to rock ‘n’ roll? I’m not answering that. Yet, if folks are still paying to see them onstage, why quit?
