On the heels of their big 50th Anniversary shows, it would make sense for the Rolling Stones to cash in a little (more), while they are in fighting shape, or whatever you call the shape they are in. And aside from being well timed, rumors of the Stones headlining Coachella are not new. You may remember last month when their mobile app briefly listed a Coachella show for 4/12, before said listing disappeared, leaving everyone from Jagger down denying knowledge of how that accidental listing ever happened. Tricksy rock legends, tricksy tricksy rock legends.
Well the denial game is ending, and it’s looking like all the principals are ready to enter the official promotional phase: From Coachella’s Facebook page, that photo above is being pointed to by various outlets as proof that Coachella’s 2012 is all about the Stones. Because it is a photo of a stone! At the Empire Polo Grounds. This either makes your more or less likely to attend, depending largely on the year you were born/whether you had HD during that 12/12/12 concert. Do tell! It’s also worth noting that Coachella will be two weekends again this year, which frankly still isn’t enough to contain all the Stones’ hits, but it’ll do.
