The Stones are now preparing for the first show on the SIXTY tour at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid next Wednesday (June 1). The tour marks the 60th anniversary of the band’s first gig, at London’s Marquee Club, on July 12, 1962, and the show will feature a brand new stage set and production. Fans can expect countless classics from their catalog as well as surprise inclusions, and as on the North American dates when they resumed the No Filter tour last fall, Steve Jordan will again take the drum seat after the death last August of Charlie Watts.

With the Live At The El Mocambo album now on release in multiple formats, June 10 will mark the release of Licked Live in NYC, another multi-format live set filmed at New York’s Madison Square Garden during the Stones’ 40th anniversary Licks tour in 2003.
