MICK JAGGER, KEITH RICHARDS IN CONFABS FOR TOUR

It’s shaping up to be a “monster” year for aging, concert-going rock music fans. Rolling Stone magazine reports that Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, Madonna and Van Halen will be touring in 2012. And Mick Jagger and  Keith Richards “met recently with their attorney to hash out details of how to mark their 50th anniversary together, weighing “ten nights in New York” and a few other big markets or “a full-fledged tour.”The somewhat younger crowd can look forward to concerts across the country by Adele, Radiohead, Lady Gaga, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Keys, Mumford & Sons and the Zac Brown Band. (You can see the Stones in person, the magazine also notes that all six episodes of the Ed Sullivan Show on which the Stones appeared, from 1964-69, are now available on two DVDs “with each lion-taming act, performance and after-shave ad intact.”)

CARDINAL-DESIGNATE TIMOTHY DOLAN GETTING POSIES FROM N.Y. MEDIA, MARSHA MASON SELLS FARM, MEMORIES OF DON GALLOP

The late attorney Don Gallop embraced the law.  He and his pop left a great legacy and personified dignity in their work.  Now, the buffed and polished members of the  Gallop, Johnson & Neuman, LLC law firm will present “A Year of Making a Difference Celebration” at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 11 at Skip Viragh Center for the Arts at Chaminade on south Lindbergh Boulevard.  Pyrotechniq of Chicago will perform.  The event will benefit local non-profit enterprises that assist people who may be impoverished, sick, disabled or looking for a second chance in life including senior citizens and military personnel. . . Now that Beffa’s is gone, where is N.Y. Cardinal-designate Tim Dolan going to have lunch with his pals when he comes here? His fans are legion and he’s attracting many more in N.Y.C.  A columnist noted that he is taking phone calls and giving blessings to people “regardless of religion or diocese.”  Sadly, members of our town’s SNAP are not so forgiving. “”We hold the former auxiliary bishop responsible for Fr. Alex Anderson’s continuing in parish ministry despite three child sex abuse allegations against him. Dolan was in charge of sex cases here when accusations against Anderson surfaced,” according to Barbara Dorris. . .Hometowner/actress/producer Marsha Mason is selling her organic farm in New Mexico. . .North American concert ticket sales were up 6.3 percent for 2011 over the previous year with $2.3 billion in gross sales.  Leading the acts – U2 with $156 million followed by Taylor Swift’s $97 million,Kenny Chesney’s $84 million and Lady Gaga’s $6.3 million.
