The Rolling Stones Have NO Firm Plan to Tour

February 03, 2011 09:26:29 GMT


A representative for The Rolling Stones insists the band has "no firm plans to tour" in the near future, after a legal battle erupted over a potential 50th anniversary trek later this year. Concert producer Michael Cohl, who has worked on many of the band's tours, was sued by bosses at promoters Live Nation in November 2010 over allegations he breached his contract at the time he left his job at the company in 2008.

He then launched a counter-suit, claiming the firm's bosses have been attempting to "interfere" and "destroy" his bid to secure the promotional rights for a tour by the legendary band later this year. The lawsuit has led to speculation the Stones will kick off a string of concerts in late 2011 in time to mark the band's 50th anniversary the following year.

Movie bosses behind "The Hurt Locker" have moved to dismiss a lawsuit from a U.S. Army bomb disposal expert who claims the Oscar-winning film is based on his own experiences. Master Sergeant Jeffrey Sarver alleges the movie's lead character, played by Jeremy Renner, is based on him but he was given no credit or compensation from the filmmakers.

He filed suit last year on the eve of the 2010 Academy Awards, at which "The Hurt Locker" scooped a massive six Oscars. The suit was filed in New Jersey, but the defendants, including director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, successfully fought to have the case transferred to California - so they can take advantage of the state's laws against stifling free speech.
