Here’s the suggestion:
The Rolling Stones are playing in Las Vegas tonight. After, they are flying to NYC for promo new album. Club gig ?

Hmmmm, Mick’s location on his Twitter post from today adds speculation to the rumors of a private show in Boston following Vegas. He says next stop Exhibitionism in NYC, which I am guessing will be Nov 11th for the band with the opening to the public on Nov 12th. The location of the tweet today though is Boston, M.A.October 24, 2016 at 4:24 pm#55894
RUMOUR – NOTHING IS FINALISED – PROBABLY A PRIVATE SHOW -> I cannot say/post anything about this now but I can say something completely off topic.
It’s been a cloudy & rainy & sunny day up here in Muskoka. (I love it!!) I wonder what the weather is like in the Boston/NYC area? Just curious!! What’s the weather report in that area over the next few days?

Stones have just hit an all time low. Turns out this gig is probably the reason they never rescheduled the second Vegas show.
Surely they could have played two stadium shows to real fans ( as opposed to an almost empty stadium filled with a few hundred corporate couldn’t care less rich kids ) and just as easily made the same amount of profit, instead we get a tour with 2 private shows and a 3 date tour. This is sad, the greed of the man.October 25, 2016 at 6:24 am#55908
I agree with you guys above! Right from the word “cancelled” at Vegas 1 we all knew they weren’t going to redo Vegas. And this Private gig has been in place now for quite a long time. Whenever they say “cancelled” rather than “postponed” we know the plans. Now……..worse yet…….this is a PRIVATE show. I’ll be really pissed off WHEN (not “IF”) the incessant hangers-on pay to get in. This is an ‘invitation only’ event. For God’s sake, show some respect. But NOOOOOOOOOO, the hangers-on will pay/whatever to get in.
Something is very wrong with this entire scene, from the Stones even doing these kinds of shows to so-called fans showing a lack of respect.

No secret anymore:
The gory details:Secret’s out on Stones’ Kraft-y stop – Boston Herald
The Rolling Stones are in town to play a private event for the Kraft family at Gillette Stadium tonight for several hundred friends and business associates of The Kraft Group.
The super-exclusive soiree in the Optum Field Lounge will be followed by a show starring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ron Wood on the Gillette field.
A spokesman for the team said the party is “a private function.”
Invitations went out several weeks ago and the Krafts reportedly were hoping to keep the whole shindig under wraps. You know, to avoid those “why wasn’t I invited” calls. So annoying …
The Stones just did two shows in Vegas and two weekends earlier this month at Desert Trip in California. Every concert spawns chatter that it could be the band’s swan song. Jagger is 73 and Charlie Watts is 75.
But the band has a new studio album coming out in December, and it is possible that they could hit the road yet again to back it.
As for the Gillette gig, we regret to report that the Track’s invitation appears to have blown off the porch …October 25, 2016 at 1:02 pm#55918keefriffhardsParticipant
I would like to take this opportunity to personally say FUCK YOU to the Rolling Stones, you greedy bastards, what goes round comes round.October 25, 2016 at 2:18 pm#55920jasona93Participant
We’ll never know, but if Mick had been unable to go Saturday night, I think there would have been a reschedule, whether one or both depended probably on true ticket sales figures. I agree that the word cancellation rather than postponement sounded dire at the time, but it might have been a legal language issue – such as ‘AXS/the band are not liable to customers for travel expenses in the event of a cancellation’. To AXS credit, they did communicate quickly that refunds were available but recommended hanging onto tickets in the event of a reschedule. I can’t believe I’m standing up for a greedy promotion outfit, but they handled it appropriately.
And yes, the optics of taking a private gig so soon after a cancellation are bad, but it is a private gig we knew about (or at least knew of the rumor) for weeks – right down to the date and city. They simply don’t play consecutive nights or 3 out of 4. I don’t begrudge them for taking a billionaire’s easy money – especially without a promoter taking a cut. I only (selfishly) wish the momentum had turned into one of the 14 or show gig tours we have been accustomed to experiencing, so I could see them once more before they probably play Europe for a bit.October 25, 2016 at 2:38 pm#55922NikkeiParticipant
This is by definition a stadium show. And I thought they could not become any more ridiculous…October 25, 2016 at 4:06 pm#55928andrew tParticipant

Yeah that’s a joke, allright. Under a rent-a-tent in the middle of an empty, cavernous stadium for 700 friends of a billionaire.
Ironic that most fans would have to eat Kraft Dinner for a month to afford a Stones show.
Fucking cash grab, it sucks ass ass ass.
