The Rolling Stones have announced details of a huge tour of UK and Ireland this summer, including dates in London, Manchester and Edinburgh.
The rock icons, who last played London’s Hyde Park in 2013, will kick off the tour with a show at Dublin’s Croke Park on 17 May.
It’s then followed by their first ever show at the London Stadium on 22 May. From there, they’ll then head to Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground on 5 June.
The tour then heads to Scotland for a show at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on 9 June, before heading to Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on 15 June.
A return to London will conclude the tour, with a show at Twickenham Stadium on June 19.Tickets are due to go on sale from Friday, 2 March 2. A presale from tomorrow (27 February) is also available for fans who have signed up to The Rolling Stones’ mailing list.
These shows form part two of the ‘Stones – No Filter’ tour, sponsored by Jeep, sponsor of The Rolling Stones European tours since 2014. They see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood continue on from their hugely successful sold out European trek in the autumn of last year.
The Rolling Stones will treat fans to a set list packed full of classics such as ‘Satisfaction’, ‘Paint It Black’, ‘Tumbling Dice’ & ‘Brown Sugar’ but each night they will include a couple of unexpected tracks and randomly selected surprises from their formidable arsenal of songs. As always when the Rolling Stones come to town they will bring a spectacular production and state of the art stage design.
Says Keith Richards: “It’s such a joy to play with this band there’s no stopping us, we’re only just getting started really.”
‘‘This part of the ‘No Filter’ tour is really special for the Stones,” Mick Jagger adds. “We are looking forward to getting back onstage in the summer and playing to fans in the UK and Ireland. It’s always exhilarating going to cities we haven’t played for quite a while and also some new venues for us like Old Trafford & The London Stadium.’’
