VANCOUVER (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — As the curtains came down in Vancouver, on the final date of the Rolling Stones successful 'A Bigger Bang' tour, the boys had a few words of gratitude to share with their audience, All Headline News reported.
First up was the surgical team who saved guitarist Keith Richards from a blood clot that he suffered after falling out of a tree while in Fiji this year. Why the 63 year-old musician was in a tree has not been fully revealed.
Additionally, the band thanked the fans at Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium for their patience in regards to a rescheduled concert after Mick Jagger's doctor advised him to rest his vocal chords.
The tour was fraught with problems and delays, Keith's blood clot-related brain surgery, Mick's vocal chord issues and the passing of his father this month. None of these things however, prevented the tour from being the highest grossing in history. The band played 110 dates in front of 3.5 million fans, to the tune of taking in $297 million, which easily brushed past U2's previous record of 256 million for the Vertigo tour. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
