Rolling Stones Mania Gathers Pace Online With Surge In Ticket Searches

LONDON, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

- Legendary rock foursome to play their first show at Hyde Park in 44 years

- Interest in Rolling Stones tickets surges with each big concert announcement

- Stones tickets available on online ticket marketplace StubHub.co.uk

The Stones are on a roll. After a wildly successful run of shows celebrating their 50 th anniversary at the tail end of 2012, including two dates at London's massive O2 Arena, rock titans The Rolling Stones are soldiering on with a major comeback. Come summer 2013 (6 July), Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Co. will play their first gig at Hyde Park in 44 years, news which immediately inspiredfervour among Stones fans and journalists alike. The news was yet another in a parade of massive announcements from the band, who have also been booked to headline the 2013 Glastonbury Festival.

After 50 years of writing and performing together, the Stones are, quite clearly, still a hot entertainment property. As search interest in Rolling Stones tickets over the past few months proves, Jagger and his cohorts are well beloved by fans - searches for 'Rolling Stones' tickets spiked by 100 percent just prior to their 2012 London gigs, with a similar jump in March around the time of the Glastonbury announcement.

The search figures underline the fact that the Stones are, without a doubt, still one of the most relevant and influential bands in the history of rock music. In November of 2012, the foursome released Grrr!, a three-disc compilation featuring 50 of their best tracks, in addition to two new songs. Its release coincided with their shows at the O2 and two dates on the East Coast of the US. Rumours about a possible headlining slot at Glastonbury swirled around the same time, only to be confirmed last month. Online ticketing marketplaces such as StubHub.co.uk saw an uptick in Rolling Stones ticket queries parallel to these news announcements.

The official sale for the Rolling Stones Hyde Park concert begins on Friday, 5 April at 9:00 a.m.BST. Interest in securing access to the show is sure to be high, but fans can check StubHub.co.uk's dedicated Rolling Stones page for additional information about ticket availability.
