The Rolling Stones Add Washington D.C. Date to North American tour
Also: Have Ticket Sales Been Down for their 50 & Counting Concerts?

Fans in our nation’s capital complaining that they weren’t getting any “Satisfaction” from the Rolling Stones’ 50 & Counting Tour dates this summer will finally feel fulfilled!

The UK rockers have just announced the addition of what’s now the final concert date to their string of North American summer shows, which will land them in Washington D.C.’s Verizon Center on June 24 (though the date may change pending the NHL playoff schedule.)

Tickets for the show are set to go on sale on Monday, May 13 at 10AM EST, though Citi Card members can purchase passes as early as May 10 at CitiPrivatePass.com.

In related news, it seems as though the Stones have been having some issues selling tickets to their 2013 concerts, and have had to reduce prices in an attempt to fill the venues according to The Guardian.

With the cheapest seats going for $170 and more desirable seats reaching a whopping $635 per ticket, many fans have been making the decision to sit out the concerts altogether. One source called the tour a “total disaster” as the Stones go up against other acts such as Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty, who are charging much less for their summer shows.

Still, the band’s UK appearances earlier this year were a huge success, which is expected to be repeated when the group headlines the Glastonbury Festival in June and plays a two-date stint at Hyde Park in July.
