The Rolling Stones set to play Old Trafford
Just like they promised The Rolling Stones are back where they belong on home turf with a number of massive UK concerts in May and June, including Old Trafford on June 5.
The Rolling Stones will treat fans to a set list packed full of classics such as ‘Satisfaction’, ‘Paint It Black’, ‘Jumpin Jack Flash’, ‘Tumbling Dice’, ‘Doom & Gloom’ & ‘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.
“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. We are looking forward to getting back onstage in the summer and playing to fans in the UK and Ireland. Its 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.’’
Charlie Watts:“The Stones audience is the glue that keeps us together. The best and most satisfying moment is when you are reaching the end of the show and they are all going nuts.”
Ronnie Wood:“When I look out at the sea of people when we play all I can see is smiles. It’s heart-warming and I’m glad we make people happy. Music makes me happy, and it makes them happy…. its infectious”
The Rolling Stones last played in the UK in the summer of 2013 with their unforgettable Glastonbury headline show on the Pyramid Stage, followed by two sensational shows in London’s Hyde Park where they played to a sold-out crowd of 65,000 fans.
Over the past eighteen months the Rolling Stones have been on top of their game with the release of the Grammy Award winning ‘Blue & Lonesome’. They also produced a critically acclaimed documentary film focusing on their ground-breaking show in Cuba, directed by Paul Dugdale.
The UK shows go on general sale at 9am GMT on Friday 2 March and support acts will be announced at a later date.
