The Rolling Stones are back on the lineup for the Harbour Fest. The American Chamber of Commerce, the festival organisers, announced late last night that tickets for Rolling Stones concerts on November 7 and 9 would go on sale at 10am today through the usual outlets. The announcement came after AmCham and government investment arm InvestHK held discussions with the band's management into the night in a last-ditch effort to secure the festival's headline act. The renewed negotiations followed a statement from the Stones' tour manager early yesterday saying the band was looking forward to playing at Harbour Fest - four days after the government announced the cancellation. On Friday, InvestHK director-general Mike Rowse said organisers had decided to drop the venerable British rock group from the bill after delays in signing a contract. But the Stones' representatives told British media on Monday they planned to stage two concerts in Hong Kong, saying they 'had received the deposit money from Hong Kong and the ... lawyers have a signed contract'. Earlier last night, both AmCham and InvestHK refused to comment on the negotiations, with a spokesman for AmCham chairman Jim Thompson saying Mr Thompson would not give an update on issue until later today. But at the same time, Mick Jagger's publicist, Bernard Docherty, speaking to the South China Morning Post from London, confirmed the band would be coming to Hong Kong, echoing the comments about the contract and the money. Mr Docherty said he had 'no idea' what was behind the confusion and lack of information from the festival's organisers. Legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing blasted the government's handling of the festival. She said Legco 'has sent Mike Rowse a letter asking him to come before the financial affairs panel to explain' how the Relaunch HK campaign had become such an embarrassment. 'The government gives the impression that it has totally lost control,' she said. 'Such a small matter, and they can turn it into such a mess. What kind of a government is this?'
