On February 26th, The Rolling Stones announced their first tour of the UK since 2013. That’s right… it’s been five years! The band last played a show in the UK back in 2013 at London’s Hyde Park. The Rolling Stone’s tour will kick off in Dublin at Croke’s Park on May 17th, 2018.
The band shared the news on Twitter on February 25th:
“We haven’t finished yet. It’s still too early to talk about the Stones’ legacy. There’s one thing that we haven’t yet achieved and that’s to really find out how long you can do this. It’s still such a joy to play with this band that you can’t really let go of it.” @officialKeef pic.twitter.com/I4C3UA9KIL
