At the moment, it looks like you're going to have to jump on a plane...
Here's the major gig announcement just made by the band...
This STONES – NO FILTER European tour follows last year’s ground-breaking tour of South America culminating in the historical concert in Havana, Cuba.
As always, the Rolling Stones will treat their European fans to a set list packed full of classics such as ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘Paint It Black’, ‘Jumpin Jack Flash’, ‘Tumbling Dice’ and ‘Brown Sugar’, but they will also include a couple of unexpected tracks each night, and randomly selected surprises from their formidable arsenal of songs. For all of the European No Filter shows listed below the Stones will be unveiling a spectacular new production and state of the art stage design.
The tour, produced by Concerts West, kicks off at the Stadtpark in Hamburg on Saturday September 9, and then heads for Munich (Germany), Spielberg (Austria), Zurich (Switzerland), Lucca (Italy) Barcelona (Spain), Amsterdam (Holland), Copenhagen (Denmark), Dusseldorf (Germany), Stockholm (Sweden), Arnhem (Holland) and rounds up with two shows in Paris (France), at the brand new U Arena, the first concerts to be staged at this venue.
Keith Richards commented, “Hey Guys, here we come. See you there!!!!”
Mick Jagger commented, “I’m so excited to be touring Europe this Autumn and returning to some familiar places and some we’ve never done before.”

This hugely successful album recorded in three days topped the charts in fifteen countries. They also produced a critically acclaimed documentary film ‘Olé Olé Olé!, – a trip across South America’, directed by Paul Dugdale. This film has just been released on DVD internationally by Eagle Rock.
