… where the boys go?

Lithograph - Rolling Stones Amsterdam 2022

Hi there, folks, it’s great to be back!

I just had some time off, some holidays and was busy relaxing, visiting the northern coast and spening my time reading and riding bike…

Now that the (fantastic, btw) tour is over, it’s about time to get beack on what’s happening all around the Stones world. There should be some news (see some interesting stuff below) as well as plans for this site, too:

First, What are Mick, Keith and Ronnie doing?

Second: What’s about the new (???!!?) album, new releases or even rumours about the next tour??

Third: There are still some reviews left I want to write

Forth: We’re heading towards the 5.000.000 visitors of stonesnews.com – and that a number I’m really looking forward to.

Fifth: it’s important to make yesterday’s papers much more easily accessible, I find. The first post here was in February 2019… so I want all these posts to be at hand with one or two clicks for you. I already have two or three solutions but I want them to look as nice and navigate as easily as possible. So give some more time and they’ll be on.

And here’s some of the news that caught my eye:

  1. I guess you already came across the name Matt Lee – he doesn’t miss any Stones show and he’s almost every time the first to post his semi-pro videos on YT!
    And here’s the Rolling Stone writing about him: “Meet the Rolling Stones Superfan Who’s Spent Millions on His Collection and Attends Every Single Show – Matt Lee got into the Rolling Stones as a 12-year-old kid. His obsession grew to the point that he’s now in the Guinness Book of World Records and counts Ron Wood as a good friend

  2. Then there are rumours about the Stones would do a show in Argentina next spring. But there’s doubt about this, coming from nationworldnews.com: “Reasons why the Rolling Stones won’t come to Argentina in March

 

 

Berlin Aftermath

Rolling Stones Berlin 2022 - Setlist

Ok, as sad as it is: this tour is over!

So then, what’s next?? Well, the band would NEVER ever talk about anything like that this was last tour, show, album, etc. That is 100% invention of the press – since 1970 at least…

This band will take some downtime for holidays and then decide about the next project – album or tour.

What a splendid tour it was. There were some rollercoaster elements like Mick catching covid, but apart from that: the band was in really fine form and played really well, especially the guitars.

Do you have memories from this tour? Post ’em here, just write some comment!

The Rolling Stones: Berlin, Waldbühne

August 3, 2022 – It’s the Waldbühne again!!

Yes indeed, here we are: at the final stop of the European SIXTY Tour of the Rolling Stones!

Well, once again it can be savely said, that they blew everyone’s mind and expectations – 3 lads in their late 70ies once again defined, what Rock ‘n’ Roll is all about – sinister lyrics, mean ( and LOUD) guitars, a production on highest levels (sound, lights) but as for the music: you still hear every wrong note or misled chord in the honest and raw mix. That’s it, folks.

And that’s what we have to expect for tonight’s finale – maybe some surprise song which they haven’t done since long? But at least, we’ll get what this band stands for: hand made custom Rock’n’Roll… ALL DOWN THE LINE:

Later, Ronnie and his family went to an italian restaurant – see bz-berlin.de for this with some pictures. t-online.de reports about this, too.
