Rolling Stones Add Hard Rock Live Florida Underplay To Close Out Tour Nov. 23
The one and only Rolling Stones have announced an additional stop on their “No Filter” 2021 tour, with the final stop on the calendar right now coming to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood on Nov. 23. The show at Hard Rock Live will be The Rolling Stones’ most intimate show in more than a decade, according to the announcement.
In celebration of the announcement, the 450-foot Guitar Hotel façade at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood will featured The Rolling Stones’ iconic logo today, Oct. 14, from 8 p.m.to midnight.
Tickets go on sale Monday, Oct. 18.
“With deep appreciation for the hard work of AEG Presents and the Stones’ management, we are honored to have the privilege of hosting perhaps the most iconic rock band of all-time on the final date of their North American tour,” said Keith Sheldon, President of Entertainment for Hard Rock International and Seminole Gaming. “With what will be by far the most intimate performance on the No Filter Tour, we know this will be an incredibly special evening at our 6,500 seat Hard Rock Live venue.”
The show is a massive underplay for the Stones, obviously, with Hard Rock Live hosting recent sellouts from performers including comedian Sebastian Maniscalco (three nights), Brandi Carlile and also comedian Jo Koy. For comparison, the Stones played Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens in 2019, selling 40,768 tickets and grossing just shy of $10 million.
AEG Presents’ Concerts West is the promoter of The Rolling Stones “No Filter” 2021 North American tour.
The Stones, of course, are a live industry juggernaut, and recently kicked off their 2021 tour in St. Louis on Sept. 26 following the passing of drummer Charlie Watts a month earlier.
The tour is also added a second show at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, although lost its New Orleans Jazz Fest gig when the festival was postponed.
No Stones tour slips through the cracks or sneaks up on the concert industry. When the iconic band plans a tour or is on the road, the live entertainment world feels the impact of it. Pollstar’s boxoffice archives certainly reflect as much since we have tracked their enduring and impressive history as a concert headliner for four decades, beginning when Pollstar was founded in 1981. The first tour stored in our database was their U.S. tour that fall.
Overall, the group has grossed over $2.2 billion from 21.8 million sold tickets at 563 concerts, according to reported sales figures since that 1981 tour. They have played many arenas and a few smaller venues, but most of their concerts have been held in stadiums, as evidenced by boxoffice averages per show. During the past 40 years, they have an average gross of $3.9 million from 38,828 sold seats – most definitely stadium numbers.
