Just like they promised The Rolling Stones are back where they belong, on the road! The Stones – No Filter tour, kicks off in Dublin on May 17.
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 and 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.
Keith Richards – “It's such a joy to play with this band there's no stopping us, we're only just getting started really.”
Mick Jagger – “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. It's always exhilarating going to cities we haven't played for quite a while.”
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… it's infectious.”
