Continuing its unprecedented partnership with the Rolling Stones, Days of our Lives has taped scenes featuring four of its core characters attending the November 4th Rolling Stones concert in Anaheim, California. Footage of the Days characters at the Stones concert will air December 16, 19 and 20.  On November 4, Days of our Lives sent four of its most popular actors to Anaheim, California for the Rolling Stones concert. The Days characters were prominently featured in the audience at the concert and shown on the big screen behind stage as The Stones performed.  "Having Days of our Lives actors attend the Rolling Stones concert was an amazing opportunity to take this partnership to the next level," said Annamarie Kostura, Vice President, NBC Daytime Programs. "Fan reaction to the Rolling Stones video premiere and the reception that the Days actors received at the concert illustrate the show's continued relevance in pop culture in this, its fortieth year."  Randy Miller, Virgin Records' Executive Vice President, Marketing, noted, "with Days of our Lives celebrating its 40th anniversary and its continued popularity as the #1 daytime drama amongst women 18-34, the show was the perfect vehicle for continuing to promote the Rolling Stones' new CD A Bigger Bang."  Rolling Stones concerts notwithstanding, Austin continues in his corporate takeover plan.  Chelsea has an accident, and what Christmas in Salem would be complete without the annual tree trimming at Alice’s home?  Certainly not this one, so get your hankies ready for another tender and touching Christmas with the Hortons.
