On April 26, 1965 the only concert the Rolling Stones played, or attempted to play, in London, Ontario was cut short by the cops.. After about 15 minutes the cops, fearing a riot, cut the power to the stage. The cops were correct, after they pulled the plug there was a riot. They said they would come back to play a makeup concert but they have yet to make it. It is my understanding that this is the only Stones show that was stopped or cancelled that was not resumed or re-scheduled.
In the mid nineties the movie Stones at the Max came to London and quickly sold old only to have the projector screw up and the show was cancelled but the promoter said they would re-schedule the show. London’s bad luck with the Stones continued as the movie has not returned for it’s make up show either.
In a 1999 letter Michael Cohl, the Stones tour manager at the time, advised that the Stones would consider playing London next time they toured but again we haven’t seen them yet.
They are now planning a World tour for 2018.
Please sign this petition to ask the Rolling Stones to keep their promise and return to London as there may not be too much time left to get them to return. They are all over 70 now and Keith may not survive falling out of another tree. It would be nice to know even the biggest rock stars keep their promises.
