Rolling Stones announce first UK tour in five years
The Rolling Stones have shared details of a massive series of dates that are set to take place of UK and Ireland this summer, as part of their ‘No Filter’ tour.
The legendary rockers last played dates on British soil five years ago when they headlined Glastonbury and London’s Hyde Park in 2013, will start the tour with a show at Dublin’s Croke Park on May 17, which is followed by their debut gig at the London stadium on May 22.
The Stones did plan on combining their UK dates with the European run last autumn, but were unable to due to a “lack of available venues because of sporting fixtures”.
Guitarist Keith Richards made this trademark statement as part of the tour announcement: “It’s such a joy to play with this band. There’s no stopping us – we’re just getting started really.”
It’s then followed by their first ever show at the London Stadium on May 22, before a trip up to Manchester for a gig at Lancashire Cricket Ground.
The tour then heads north to Scotland for a show at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on June 9, before heading to Wales for a gig at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on June 15.
The band will then return to London to finish up the run of dates, with a show at Twickenham Stadium on June 19.
Tickets will go on sale from Friday March 2 and you can buy them here. A presale from tomorrow is also available for fans who have signed up to their mailing list.
