The original show had been set for January 11 in the 57,000 seat Olympic Stadium, but the rescheduled Montreal stop now calls for two shows at the comparatively intimate (for the Stones anyway) 22,000-seat Molson Centre, April 19 and 20. Also re-booked are shows April 17 at the Syracuse Carrier Dome, and April 26 at the Skydome in Toronto.
Mick Jagger's laryngitis caused the cancellation of performances in Syracuse, NY, and Toronto, Canada. The following week, the Montreal show had to be scrapped when a giant ice-storm hit the area. The concert had at first survived the massive power failures, airport and road closures, but the date was finally pulled at the last minute when ice pierced the stadium roof.
Our Lady Peace will be opening the show in Syracuse, while fellow Canadians Wide Mouth Mason have gotten the nod for the Canadian dates.
A TNA representative has declined to comment on the possibility of extra stops for the near-week long gap between Montreal and
Toronto, other than to say no other shows are scheduled at this time. The popular rumor has been that dates are being held in Chicago and Detroit for additional performances.
April had been one of the few breaks in the Stones' extensive tour. Most of March will be spent touring Japan, and the current schedule calls for the band to perform in Europe from the third week in May to the first week in September.
