Endemol Teams with Dainty Group for Rolling Stones Tour - 15th October 2012


LONDON/AMSTERDAM: Endemol UK and Endemol Netherlands have partnered with Dainty Group to co-manage the international digital rights to The Rolling Stones' "50 and Counting" tour.

This tour will be the first time the band has performed together in a half decade. The final gig is scheduled to take place at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on December 15. Entitled One More Shot, it will be telecast live through pay per view at 9 p.m. and will be distributed by WWE.
Additional plans that will enable fans to interact with the tour experience are forthcoming.

Tim Hincks, the president of Endemol Group, commented: "We are extremely proud to be partnering with the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band and the Dainty Group. '50 and Counting' is set to be a phenomenal global celebration of The Rolling Stones and we'll soon be announcing further plans to make it an interactive experience for fans like no other."

Laurens Drillich, the managing director of Endemol Netherlands Media Group, added: "We are excited and honored to be playing a role in the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones.

WWE rolls with Stones' 'Shot' show - 15th October 2012
(Variety)

Company to produce, distribute the pay-per-view concert

WWE is going on tour with the Rolling Stones.

As part of the band's 50th anniversary, WWE will produce and distribute the live pay-per-view show "One More Shot" for the Stones' final show, performed at the Prudential Center, in Newark, N.J., on Dec. 15.

"WWE is ecstatic to bring the Rolling Stones into your living room," said WWE chairman-CEO Vince McMahon.

The tour, to take place at four arena shows in London and New York, is a partnership between Endemol, which co-manages the international digital rights to the Rolling Stones "50 and Counting" shows, and Dainty Group. The performances will see the band working once again with two longtime collaborators, set designer Mark Fisher and lighting director Patrick Woodroffe, who are designing an all-new, custom-built set, with a stage based on the band's ubiquitous and celebrated tongue and lips logo that reaches out into the crowd.

WWE was asked to participate after proving it can turn live events throughout the year, including its biggest show, "WrestleMania," into major moneymakers through PPV. "WrestleMania 28," held April 1 at Miami's Sun Life Stadium, generated a record 1.3 million buys, earning $67 million.

But WWE also has been looking to monetize its production biz further through concerts and other deals, with the Rolling Stones show one of the first high-profile pacts it's announced so far.

The Rolling Stones live shows will also mark the launch of new touring venture Virgin Live from the Dainty Group and Richard Branson's Virgin.

"In the future Virgin Live plans to make a real difference to how fans experience, interact and enjoy live events," Branson said.

Anniversary also will be feted with the release of the Rolling Stones' "GRRR!" album on Nov. 13, a greatest hits collection that includes new songs "Doom and Gloom" and "One More Shot," recorded recently in Paris, marking the first new recordings from the band since their 2005 album "A Bigger Bang."

A new film, "Crossfire Hurricane," directed by Brett Morgen and chronicling the Stones' career, will receive its worldwide premiere Oct. 18 at the London Film Festival and bow on HBO on Nov. 15. It will air on BBC Two in the U.K. the same month.

In addition, from Nov. 15-Dec. 2, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City will host "The Rolling Stones: 50 Years on Film," a comprehensive film retrospective that chronicles the band from the mid-1960s until today.

Hulk Hogan's Back Injury -- Seashell Shock - 7th September 2010
(Credit: TMZ)

We now know why Hulk Hogan was hospitalized yesterday for severe back pain -- a completely non-violent, low-impact session of ... seashell collecting.

TMZ spoke to the Hulkster -- who's currently hospitalized in Clearwater, FL -- and dude tells us he was picking up seashells this weekend with his girlfriend Jennifer ... and the constant bending over eventually got the better of him.

Hulk -- who's had multiple back surgeries in the past -- says he must have aggravated his old injuries ... because the next morning he could "barely move" and had to call an ambulance.

Hulk tells TMZ the doctors believe he suffered a tear in one of his muscles -- but they still need to run some tests to be certain.

As for when he'll leave the hospital -- Hulk says he could be holed up there for another two days ... but at least he has his Twitter account to keep him busy.

Hulk Hogan suffering back pain - 29th May 2010

Hulk Hogan is in constant agony, according to wrestling legend Ric Flair.

The grappler-and-reality TV star is suffering from a serious back injury which could mean he never competes in the ring again.

Flair - who is a member of the Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling roster with Hogan - told BANG Showbiz: 'His heart is in the ring but he has health issues and at this point in time they are overwhelming. His back has been really bad. He's got an artificial knee, an artificial hip, which don't bother him at all. But his back is causing everything to hurt.'

However, Flair - who has been in several matches with Hogan on TNA's flagship show 'iMPACT' since the two superstars joined the company in January - hopes his long-time rival will be able to carry on wrestling.

The 61-year-old former multi-time world champion added: 'Hopefully, when he gets his back fixed he'll be fine. We might still see him in the ring if his health issues get resolved.'

Although Flair has had on-screen rivalries with 56-year-old Hogan - who previously starred in reality TV show 'Hogan Knows Best' with his family, including his pop star daughter Brooke Hogan - for decades, he insists he has enormous respect for him.

He said: 'I respect him immensely but on some things we agree to disagree. It's the business.'

As long as both Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair do some of their signature moves have the in ring charisma, I think the match up is still worth paying for. There will only every be one Hulk Hogan and one Ric Flair, and both are apparently prepared to put in all on the line to entertain the fans while they still can, and make a pay day in the process, which will help go towards the massive expenses they have both endured in the past few years. I think wrestling fans owe it to the guys and themselves to pay to see the match. You also can't blame them for wanting to have a working holiday down under here in Australia, and make a pay day and party with us Australians. Enjoy the match up and take the opportunity to see both legends go at while they can. Let's also see some technical wrestlers and other entertaining talent get locked into the card. Hulk and Flair, thanks for the memories over the decades, and we look forward to seeing you do your thing in Australia. Greg Tingle, founder and director, Media Man Australia


The Sunday Telegraph - reader feedback - 20th September 2009

There will only ever be one Hulk Hogan, and one Ric Flair. I think fans owe it to see and support living legends such as The Hulk and "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair, while they can still do their thing. Hogan, Flair, Roddy Piper and the crew... thank you for the memories. New talent also have their chance to shine in the indy's, WWE feeder promotions and the WWE. Hulkamania for ever. Hulkamania has indeed run wild down under in Australia.
Bondi Beach #1 Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Roddy Piper fan. Woooo!

The Daily Telegraph - reader feedback - 22nd September 2009

Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Piper, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, and too many more to list, thank you for the memories. Hulk Hogan's legend lives on and is alive and well down under in Australia. Australian's appreciate Hulk's hard work over the years and his own comeback of the decade. The way Hulk Hogan communicates his real life story is ultra impressive, and its great to see him putting in the hard yards, pounding the pavement and jetting around Australia to let the Australian public know that this upcoming tour is the real deal. The entertainment industry has been fuelled considerably by pro wrestling over the years, and guys like Hogan, Flair and Piper carried it on their backs, with switched on promoters at the likes of WWE, WCW and NWA kicking it along. It appears that Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Jimmy Hart and Eric Bishcoff and co are putting together a great event here. For my money, having Hogan here means the show has already began. The coverage in the newspapers and Australian TV sure beats the hell out of some of the other stuff passed off as "entertainment news". Hulkamania forever. Wooooo! Just when they think they have the answers, Hogan and Flair change the questions.

A profiles section on Media Man Australia could not be complete without a bio on Hulk Hogan.

Hogan, more of an entertainment figure, than that of media tycoon, it was Hogan and Vince McMahon that got the world's media attention focused on the professional wrestling business in the mid 80's.

Together with McMahon, he made wrestling go mainstream and sold out arenas around the world.

Hogan was on the cover of wrestling and entertainment magazines, and he will forever be remembered as the wrestler who took his business to the world stage.


Bio (credit: The Professional Wrestling Online Museum)

His name is Terry Bollea, but the world knows him as "Hulk Hogan" and more than anyone else, he was responsible for the meteoric rise in the popularity of professional wrestling in the 1980's. While not the most skillful wrestler of his era, nor even the biggest, Hogan combined his enormous physical stature with an outstanding screen presence to cause the World Wrestling Federation to rocket past all other Wrestling Organizations as the top provider of wrestling entertainment on a nationwide basis.

Hogan was brought into the sport of Professional Wrestling when he was discovered while playing the bass guitar in nightclub in the early 1970's. In order to learn his new trade, Hogan trained under the tutelage of Japans great Hiro Matsuda, after which he moved from his home in Tampa to the west coast, where he began bodybuilding in Venice Beach, California, working under the name of "Sterling Golden." Later, he changed his Ring name to Terry Boulder, before settling on the name of Hulk Hogan. He was later managed by "Classy" Freddie Blassie and wrestled as a heel in a number of organizations, including the AWA and the WWF. While he gained in popularity in several regions, Hogan had not yet gained national exposure - this would happen in 1982.

In 1982, Hogan appeared in the motion picture Rocky III, starring as the enormous wrestling villain "Thunderlips." Because of the huge positive response his appearance received, Vince McMahon lured him back to the WWF and made him the focal point of that federation's ability to survive and then thrive. He defeated the Iron Sheik in 1984 to secure the WWF Heavyweight Championship and quickly became the WWF's most popular athlete. Behind Hogan's 26" arms and huge shoulders, McMahon pushed the WWF towards a national audience. Commencing with several tie ins with MTV, Hogan, the WWF and the sport of Pro Wrestling hit the big time when the Hulk appeared with actor Mr. T at the WWF's first big wrestling extravaganza, Wrestlemania I.

Wrestlemania I was not the first nationally broadcast live wrestling event, but at that time it was certainly the most important. Unbeknown to most fans, had Wrestlemania not been a big success, the WWF may have had to return to the days of operating as regional operation - or worse, it may have closed down completely. With all of the organizations hopes riding on the event, it is not surprising that Hulk Hogan was called upon to carry the burden of turning it into a colossal success. After countless appearances on popular television shows (including Saturday Night Live) in which he promoted the event, Hogan finally appeared alongside Mr. T and repelled the team of "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff and "Cowboy" Bob Orton. The success of this event saved the WWF, established the validity of a national promotion and catapulted Hogan into the realm of popularity known only to the biggest stars of entertainment and sports - but even this was not the most important event for Hulk Hogan. That event would be Wrestlemania III.

Loaded with extraordinary matches, Wrestlemania III set a indoor attendance record as more than 92,000 fans crowded the Pontiac Silverdome for the event. On that day, the Main Event, and the match which spawned the huge attention to the arena was the battle between Hulk Hogan and the previously unbeaten Andre the Giant. After suffering an injury early on, Hogan astounded viewers around the world as he not only defeated Andre, but lifted the 500 pound Frenchman off of the ground and slammed him to the Ring canvas to retain his title.

Hogan went on to defend his title in the WWF and has recently moved to the WCW where he quickly gained that organizations Championship title. Over the years, and in the future, Hulk Hogan has symbolized the growth of professional wrestling into a multi-million dollar industry - but to thousands of young fans, he has become their hero and their champion.

Hulk Hogan: Media coverage - 2003

13th October 2003

A post match press conference in Japan by Hulk Hogan turned nasty last night when TNA's Jeff Jarrett showed up to confront Hogan.

Hogan was meeting with the Japanese press following his victory over Masa Chono at the big New Japan event in the Tokyo Dome, when Jarrett arrived on to the scene and attacked Hogan.

Hogan was addressing the Japanese media about his future, and had just said "I have unfinished business here in Japan. I want to win the IWGP title again. I also have unfinished business in the United States. The only title I've never won is the NWA World Heavyweight Title." Jeff Jarrett burst on the scene in a rage and attacked Hogan and left him a crimson mess.

Jarrett taunted Hogan by saying, "I heard the rumors that you wanted to come to TNA.....well TNA just came to you."

TNA has been in contact with members of the Japanese media and will air footage of the incident on this week's episode of NWA-TNA: Total Nonstop Action.

Hogan did come to terms with NWA TNA last week, however no word if an actual contract as been signed yet though. Hogan is set to return on a special 3 hour NWA TNA event featuring Hogan vs. Jarrett in the main event.
