The Rolling Stones say they haven’t been approached by Coachella
The Rolling Stones have been a heavy favorite for Coachella 2013, especially after the Indio, CA festival was briefly listed in the Tour section of the band’s mobile app.
However, in a new interview with RollingStone.com which took place in late December, Mick Jagger claimed that the band has yet to be approached by Coachella organizers. He also swore no knowledge of why the Coachella listing appeared on their mobile app. Jagger added, “I always said that we’d see how this would go,” referring to the band’s recent string of 50th anniversary concerts, “then we’d think about doing more – or not.”
Discussing their 2013 tour plans in general, Jagger said, “There have been quite a few offers. I’m going to see what’s on the table and discuss it with everyone. We’ll announce it when we’ve figured it out.”
Coachella 2013 takes place over two weekends from April 12th-14th and April 19th-21st at Indio’s Empire Polo Grounds. Several acts have already self-confirmed appearances at the festival, including Rodriguez, Father John Misty, Paul Kalkbrenner, Kill the Noise, Hardwell, Bingo Players, Dirty Bird Plays Club.
Other likely acts (based on tour schedules) include Sigur Rós, Passion Pit, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Beach House, Tegan and Sara, Stars, and Local Natives. Stay tuned to Festival Outlook for additional updates.
