OTD January 15 - The Rolling Stones

CBS Television

1967: After Ed Sullivan threatens to kick The Rolling Stones off his show if they perform "Let's Spend the Night Together," the band reaches a compromise to change the lyrics to "Let's Spend Some Time Together." While lead singer Mick Jagger agreed to the change, he ostentatiously rolled his eyes at the TV camera while singing them. Years later he would say he never actually changed the lyrics, but rather just mumbled them whenever he came to them in the song.

The Rolling Stones will mount an 18-show arena tour in May and June with AEG Live at the promoter helm, sources told Pollstar shortly after the deal was sealed. The exact routing is still being confirmed but an announcement is expected in early April.

Dates are still being locked down, but Mick and the boys made it known they are interested in no more than an 18-show, two-month outing, which will happen in May and June. The number of cities isn't confirmed, other than they will be major markets and the 18 shows will include multiple-night stands.
