Rolling Stones: No Filter!

TourpagebannerThe Rolling Stones have announced brand new European tour dates for 2017.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts will embark on the STONES – NO FILTER tour, which will see them play thirteen shows in twelve different venues across Europe in September & October this year. https://youtu.be/V3tphkDJNVU

band-rankin-square-110712-660x660When the nascent Rolling Stones began playing gigs around London in 1962, the notion that a rock & roll band would last five years, let alone fifty, was an absurdity. After all, what could possibly be more ephemeral than rock & roll, the latest teenage fad? Besides, other factors made it unlikely that such a momentous occasion would ever come to pass. “I didn’t expect to last until fifty myself, let alone with the Stones,” Keith Richards says with a laugh. “It’s incredible, really. In that sense we’re still living on borrowed time.” Keith added: “Hey Guys, here we come. See you there!!!!”

These new dates follow their ground-breaking tour of South America on 2016, which culminated in their historic free concert in Havana, Cuba.  Mick Jagger said of the news: “I’m so excited to be touring Europe this Autumn and returning to some familiar places and some we’ve never done before.”
