The Rolling Stones: Will a UK tour roll in?

The Rolling Stones just keep rolling! It’s been 52 years since the release of hit anthem “(I can’t get no) satisfaction” and rock royalty are still going strong with ad hoc performances.

Late last year, The Rolling Stones released a new album, Blue & Lonesome, which is exclusively made up of blues covers and was recorded over just three days in 2015. They weren’t blue and lonesome for long though, as fans clamoured to get their hands on this latest release. This unexpected addition to their full repertoire has stimulated rumours of a tour – be the first to hear about The Rolling Stones hospitality with Villiers, if and when the tour announcement drops.

The Rolling Stones have demonstrated an appreciation of blues music throughout their career, it’s where they took a great deal of inspiration from. Blue & Lonesome is their first studio album in over a decade. Featuring The Rolling Stones legends: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts, they even have old friend of the band, Eric Clapton, contributing. If they were to tour their latest album, would Eric Clapton join them on stage?

In 2012, their 50th anniversary performance was highly sought out, and they’ve made it clear they are looking to focus towards live music, having previously performed over 2,000 concerts around the world.

The last time The Rolling Stones played a UK show was in London in 2013. However, an interview with Jagger has him quoted to say that The Rolling Stones will be announcing more shows and that they will return to perform in the UK. It’s sounding promising for a 2017 or 2018 Rolling Stones tour, but when will they announce it?

Although The Rolling Stones have been around over five decades, their ability to sell out stadiums and arenas has never changed. Based on previous performances, it’s likely they would announce to perform at London’s O2 Arena, Manchester’s MEN Arena, The SSE Hydro in Glasgow and potentially the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. At Villiers, our premier access to VIP hospitality at select venues can see you cheer on these legends when they return to England.
