No satisfaction for Stones lovers

The Rolling Stones have cancelled their Phoenix Park rock concert schedule for August 18, following legal argument by a rival promoter over procedures to be followed in granting a licence to a promoter to use the public park for the pay-in concert.

The concert was to have been part of the Stone's 2006 A BIGGER BANG tour.

Instead the band will now perform in Spain on the Dublin date as part of an international tour.

The legal row may have repercussions for future concert promotions in the park.
