Rolling Stones tickets 2018
The Rolling Stones will play their first UK concerts in five years this spring. Starting at the London Stadium in Stratford on 22 May, the dates make up the second leg of the No Filter tour that the four-piece began in Europe in autumn 2017. Buy Rolling Stones tickets 2018 here.
The Stones initially intended to combine their UK dates with the European run, but were unable to due to a “lack of available venues because of sporting fixtures”. The last time the Stones performed in their home country was summer 2013, when they headlined Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage and gave two concerts at London’s Hyde Park.
The pioneering British rock group have been touring for 55 years, after earning their live chops on the prosaically named British tour of 1963. Nevertheless, guitarist Keith Richards offered a characteristically tireless statement on the tour announcement: “It’s such a joy to play with this band. There’s no stopping us – we’re just getting started really.”
The Rolling Stones will perform at the London Stadium (22 May), Manchester Old Trafford (5 June), Edinburgh Murrayfield (9 June), Cardiff Principality Stadium (15 June) and London Twickenham (19 June).
Tickets for the shows go on sale on 2 March.
