It was rave reviews all round last week as the Rolling Stones kicked off their 2005/06 World Tour in Boston’s Fenway Park baseball stadium.
According to the man from the Boston Herald: “Riotous whooping and howling ensued at the beginning of each song. From the start it was clear that mellowing with age just isn’t in the cards for these British dinosaurs.
"The seemingly bottomless well of energy spewing forth from the strutting-cock Jagger has become something of a phenomenon, and tonight was no exception.”
The States, South America, Japan, New Zealand and Australia conquered, the veteran rockers will hit Europe in May with a Dublin Croke Park date mooted for mid to late June.
Referring to it as “a done deal”, a well-placed source says that tickets are likely to go on sale at the end of September.
