June 21 – Yes, folks: today kicks off the Rolling Stones No Filter US/Canada Tour 2019 in Chicago!

OK folks: that was a triumphant tour-start, despite health issues and reschedules, the Stones are once again back and deliver all the good stuff only they can supply. Thank you all for hanging in on this party – we were really lucky for almost the complete show could be listend and watched live by several streams. In this case, all my wishes came true. Now I must get a little rest – it’s approaching 6 am over here and there was not much rest during the hours before. I LOVE IT! I’m gonna get me some nap. I’ll be back soon with the aftermath!
