The Rolling Stones have announced plans to close their United States tour with a closed-circuit television special, to be broadcast via satellite from a New York nightclub on Dec. 18. The name of the club has not been disclosed.
The special, to be called ''The World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Party,'' will include guest stars from rock, rhythm-and-blues and country-and-western music, and will be shown on large screens and broadcast through concert sound systems in 200 theaters and halls around the country. The sites will be decorated with balloons and other party paraphernalia.
Oh yeah, and this happened at the end of the night. Mythology after all:
Keith: "I saw nobody between him and Mick: Oh God, here we go, I'm not gonna get any more money for this (laughs)... I have no idea what this guy's gonna do. I don't know if he's gonna stab Mick, hug him, kiss him, roll over and screw him. I don't know! All I know is that he's trying to get his hands on Mick and this I have to prevent. And I do have a weapon in my hands (laughs).... I was playing 'Satisfaction' at the time. This is gonna sound terrible but the damn thing stayed in tune. And this is the greatest advert for Fender! (laughs)."
