Considering the upcoming tour, we look at the last tour that the Rolling Stones performed. Starting in 2012 in Paris, the Stones begun their ’50 and Counting’ tour. It was extended due to popular demand (and satisfaction!), after touring North America and Europe for 9 months, they travelled to the other side of the world and toured Asia, Oceania and eastern Europe. Every single gig had a sell-out audience, meaning throughout the 2 years of touring, they performed to approximately 1,616,880 people!
Along the tours journey, the Rolling Stones invited some very special guests onto the stage. Some supporting artists including Mary J. Blige, Bill Wyman, Mick Taylor, John Mayer, Gwen Stefani, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and the Black Keys.
Summer of 2013 was a particularly successful time for the tour. They performed Glastonbury Festival on 29th June 2013, which after 50 years of the band, was there first time performing here! On the 6th and 13th July, the Stones performed in Hyde Park. This was 44 years after the free gig they performed at Hyde Park in 1969. This corresponded with Mick Jagger’s birthday, in which he turned 70 on the 26th July.
It is expected that these tickets will be selling out fast, so make sure you go online at 9 am on March 2nd to get yours. Tickets will be available on Ticketmaster, AXS, and other reputable ticket agencies.
