Rolling Stones Staples Center 2013

Legendary rock stars the Rolling Stones recently announced a small spate of North American tour dates, and, as if to atone for their lack of West Coast performances this past fall (when they only played NYC and NJ), this latest round of shows includes an appearance at LA’s Staples Center. The Cali concert is slated for next month – as in, two weeks – on May 2nd. We’ve got all the info on the gig right here, including a little history on both the locale and the venue – and most importantly, a few discount tickets!

Rolling Stones Los Angeles, CA

The City of Angels, or Los Angeles, CA, home of the Staples Center and soon-to-be host of the Rolling Stones, is the most populous city in the state of California and the second most populous city in the nation, just behind NYC. The nexus of the music and entertainment industries, LA is also renown for its diversity, and has been nationally recognized as the most diverse of the United States’ major cities (hence all that creative output). In addition to the Staples Center, LA is also home to Dodgers Stadium and the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, two of the most high-profile arenas around.

The 14-year-old Staples Center is located in downtown LA, on Figueroa Street. It’s billed as a “multi-purpose” venue, which means it annually houses a number of entertainment ventures, including concerts, sports games and other special events. Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and John Mayer have all performed there, and the arena has also notably hosted several NBA Finals series, as well as the Stanley Cup Finals.
