Next up: UK/Ireland tour 2018 !!!!

February 18 - More dates for mainland Europe?

=> Looks like Berlin, Marseille and Duesseldorf are added to the runoured venues! What making this concept likely is the fact that across the UK and Ireland only less than 10 dates are rumoured to happen so far - and usually, the Stones play more gigs than that number on tours lately - so there really could takle place some more dates in Europe! Let's keep our fingers crossed!

February 16 - UK-Tour 2018 is coming closer!

=> Well - do the Stones play Cardiff this year??? According to, that's quite possible. They have this very nice headline: "The Rolling Stones are looking at playing huge stadium show in Cardiff this summer" - aah, that sounds so good! Well, the crucial line in that report is this bit: "Although the details have yet to be confirmed, it is understood plans are underway to bring the rock greats to the Principality Stadium as part of a UK tour.". So we're still on a rumour-diet until the levee breakes and we get some official announcement, hehehe...
So far, we may expect these venues as likely to happen: Dublin, Southampton, Edinburgh, 2 x Manchester, 2 x London!

Ok, just to get you into the right mood... :

February 7 - State of the Rumours

=> So what's tumbling through the old rumour-mill these days? Well, things about the upcoming tour and expected announcements and the new studio album, of course. Let's have a look, in a nutshell, for the first issue, the Tour 2018 and it's announcement. We know that the band only confirms dates officially, when some 8 - 10 bookings are safe and sound - later, additional dates can be added. So far, we can hear that Croke Park in Ireland and Twickenham are mentioned as possible venues. Croke Park also is rumoured as the opening date of the tour. Also, some dates for mainland Europe are mentioned, like Germany and Belgium. Well, let's see what happens ...

=> And the new album? Well, last thing I heard was from an interview with Don Was [thanks for pointing out, Lien from IORR!], who said that this next album still is in it's "early stages". After the release of Blue & Lonesome, I had hoped they would have the basic tracks together already, but this doesn't really sound like that. The studio-pics below could be from recordings for a project by or for Buddy Guy. So in all, that's a little disappointing for me. But who knows: this here is all rumours andin the end a) you'll never know and b) the Stones will definitely put out new stuff AND go on tour, if nothing serious happens!

Febraury 2 - DUBLIN!?

=> FUCK HELL yeah! Accoring to, the Stones are TIPPED FOR A DUBLIN SHOW. So you see, we get more leaks as we are heading to ANOTHER TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

January 29 - Tour 2018! / Grammy for Blue & Lonesome / Mick & Keith in the studio / Mick in Rajastan

=> Yes, fellas, the new year is getting into gear! We can safely expect that negotiations for the venues for the upcoming tour of the UK and Ireland are going on as you read this. It's the usual procedure and as long as there are no health restricions, the band will announce the tourdates sooner or later. And even if we have not heared much about the new album, it's still in the making. It will take it's time but hopefully it will be released this year. Whether this will happen before the new tour or after, is still left open. Nevertheless, they both were in the studio in December last year, so we know that they are still working on it. See below and thanks to barkerboy2 from [sdb] for posting the pics!

=> Congrats to the Blues and The Stones! Yesterday, Blue & Lonesome won a Grammy for 'Best Traditional Blues Album', for Blue & Lonesome, at the 60th Grammy Awards in Madison Square Garden! Keith tweeted: "Fantastic! It's about fucking time!"

January 5 - Lovin Dublin expects tour announcement

=> Yup, here we go again and share the hope for an official tour announcement by thy band for this year! The site 'Lovin Dublin' calls this "It Looks Like The Rolling Stones Are Set To Announce A Dublin Stadium Gig". Refering to the already mentioned Irish Independent article below, Lovin Dublin says: "If a concert does go ahead, it's thought it will be staged at either Croke Park or the Aviva Stadium in Dublin." Whatever it is and wherever it will take place: we'll apprechiate any news like this very much and will be there. So c'mon, lads, let the announcements roll, hehehe ...

January 3 - Independent calls for irish gigs

=> Happy new year first of all!! The irish paper The Independent has opend up this year's rumour-rally about where and when the gigs this year are going to take place. They hope for Aviva Stadium or Croke Park in case the band visits Ireland. They also mention the possibility that the Stones could play Knebworth Festival again - well in any case, we would welcome any of this, don't we? :-)

December 27 - Ronnie at BBC Radio II

=> Starting very shortly: "Paint It Black with Ronnie Wood and Anneka Rice"! This radio starts today at 17:05 and will last for 1 hour, 55 minutes. So we can expect some news about Ronnie, his family, his paintings and maybe about the new tour. Are there really more dates possible in mainland Europe, besides the UK and Ireland, as rumours tell lately? Let's hope for it folks! So let's go and listen closely: The BBC tells this about about the programme: "Ronnie Wood gives us an exclusive insight into his home life and other passion, besides music...his art. Anneka Rice chats to Ronnie about his love of painting and how he is inspired. Plus he chooses some of his favourite music. Anneka gets a guided tour of his home and art studio - and discovers how important his painting is to him. She also gets to meet his family and see the side to Ronnie Wood that is very rarely showcased. His music choices include artists that his brothers introduced him too, such as Chuck Berry, Howlin' Wolf and Fats Domino, as well as some of his favourite jazz artists, another one of his passions.". There will be a podcast available shortly after the broadcast.

December 20 - Nice article!

December 14 - Again on top of the list!

=> The Stones top the list of the highest gross per gig in 2017! As reports, the band earned about $10 million per show on their recent 12-city, 14-show 'No Filter' tour, selling approximately 63,000 tickets a night at an average price of about $159. And that's about $1.7 million more than current 2nd-place holders U2, hehehe!

No Big hits, just the Blues. We'll be playing original tracks that they covered, as well as their own songs covered by Blues artists and obviously The Stones themselves doing what they do best....Playing the Blues.

July 20, 2011 (and for eternity) - The Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers And The Lost Photo Session

Ok, this comes a bit late. But since there are no more news about the possible gigs for Hide Park or anything like a tour in 2012 right now, I thought we could use the occasion and look back over yonder...

Recently, a treasure of photographs were discoverd after photographer Peter Webb's negatives went missing after shooting the Stones for that monster record "Sticky Fingers". Then, out of nowhere, they are re-discovered after a gap of almost 40 years. Let's have a look... oh man, have a look at Keith's eyes ...
