Ronnie at the Ivy

ASPIRE fundraising, Anne + Sally, Ivy Club, London, March 2023

Sally Wood and Anne Heath had invited guests to a charity event at the Ivy Club, London, last Friday.

Charity goes to “Aspire” – Aspire provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury, supporting them from injury to independence.
You can donate here!

Ronnie was there, Ben Waters, Imelda May, Chanel Hayness and others came and of course played, too. Check out the pictures at Instagram: Patricia Right and  Florian Reith – below are just 4 samples.

Then, we hear, that the new album is finished and that Mick had twisted his ankle, which caused the delay for the tour, which is going to start this autumn… but, mind you, that’s just rumors!

Mick seen at football game

Mick's own harp line

Yesterday, Mick and two of his youngest children, son Deveraux, six, and Lucas, 22, were seen at the Fulham against Arsenal football game.

What generally raised eyebrows was the cap reading DILF, that he wore. My guess is, that this was Lucas idea of a joke and Mick accepted. But we won’t know for sure how this came about.

Here’s the press with more of this and some pics, too: The Sun, Express, The Scottisch Sun

Meanwhile, reports, that The Stones are sued by some songwriter Sergio Garcia aka Angelslang over their 2020 song “Living In A Ghost Town“… the german Rolling Stone, too, has this story.





New lyric video released

A Bigger Bang

New lyric video release: Rain Fall Down

The Rolling Stones last studio album, as we all know, was A Bigger Bang.  That was released in 2005 … a whooping 18 years ago. Did I say I liked it? Oh yes, I did. And I still do. Some of the songs stood out, like Laugh I Nearly Died compared to the blues orientated Back Of My Hand.For the groovy, dancable section, there was Rain Fall Down.

And this was just released anew as a lyric video with English and Spanish language. Nice to hear and see that again! Enjoy:


Stones at ‘Lviv Aid’

Stones 2023

Are The Rolling Stones playing at a Live Aid-style concert this summer in support of Ukraine?

Quite a few sources tell of plans for such an event where The Rolling Stones, U2, The Killers and Pink have been asked to perform. Stars like Paul McCartney and Adele are also likely to be approached. Thing is, though, for one we don’t have any official confirmation and two – the date apparently would be June 24 and thus would collide with Glastonbury… but that ‘date has now been nailed down and booked at Wembley stadium‘.

Some sources for this: The Sun / Mail Online / / / / and lots more…


Meanwhile, Keith gratulates his mate Peter Wolf (JGeilsBand):

The new album with the Beatles + more …

Rolling Stones - London Hyde Park 2022

Yes, folks, it’s true – two of The Beatles, still alive, could contribute some stuff to the new album of The Rolling Stones!

As we can read at (and elsewhere), that Paul McCartney as well as Ringo Starr have been at the sessions for the yet-to-be-announced album, which by now is nearing the mixing phase. There’s no info as to whether Macca and Ringo appear on the same track or not. And even if that or those particular tracks will finally join the selection of songs to be published on the album is uncertain.

(@Steve: thanks for the link, mate. Hadn’t seen it until now; got the info via Google’s alert…)

After all those years of waiting, we will easily cope with the final days or weeks until the new album will come out. Stones fans can be very patient, hehehe …

What else?

Oh yes; there’s a nice little docu about The Rolling Stones Mobile Studio – The Stones mobile recording studio not only produced some of the band’s biggest albums but was also used to record some of the most iconic albums of the 1970s by other legendary bands such as Fleetwood Mac, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath…

And then we have a new revisit to Emotional Rescue as official lyric video!

Unofficial announcement cancelled

Stones tongue on mural

There have been expectations, that The Rolling Stones would announce their tour dates for this year, soon.

However, that won’t happen within the next days. But don’t worry…

First of all, there has not been any official announcement of a tour for this year yet. All we talk about here is rumours and latest rumours…

BUT, as rumour has it, the possible scheduled dates for early summer (see this post for the venues) were expected to be announced soon. But now we hear, that this was postponed in favour for a tour in maybe late summer or fall. We also hear, that there is no need to worry about any serious threat to the band or the tour, but that some trivial reasons caused this postponement. For example, it is very likely that there were problems with the schedule and they couldn’t book the 12 plus 2 venues within any reasonable time table for this summer, so they try again to fix dates for later this year.

So far, so good. Long live The Rolling Stones!

Some tour-infos

Some tour-infos

Some more informations – although not official – have surfaced.

Apparently, an announcement was planned for this Friday, February 17th, but was postponed. To what date is not yet known. Remind you, this was not officially either.

Similaryl to the last tours The Rolling Stones have done, we can expect about 14 dates for this summer. Maybe, the tour continues into this fall. Of the 14 rumoured dates, it’s reasonable to expect that 12 will be venues in the US and 2 of them in Canada…

There will be more news coming in during this month.

First rumoured tourdates for this summer!

Stones tongue on mural

As we had expected, we now see the first rumoured tour dates coming up.

So far, rumors tell about a tour of the Unites States of America during this summer. Start of this tour could well be around June.

As for the list of venues, so far, there’s a list of four cities: Chicago (June), Edmonton (June), Boston (July) and Cleveland (July).

Of course, we do not know how this tour is going to be called yet. There will be more dates than these four, that’s for sure.

We as well can expect, that the tour dates will leave plenty of time in between the dates; after all, we talk about folks in their 80, for chissakes! It’s a wonder, a miracle and it’s wonderful! Long live The Rolling Stones!
