The Rolling Stones and Wembley stadium have a special relationship and we like to think Wembley is their home away from home. With no current UK dates so far in The Rolling Stones European tour, it seems likely we will see the Rolling Stones at Wembley in 2018. Sign up to Villiers mailing list for the latest details of The Rolling Stones hospitality and VIP tickets in 2018.
The Rolling Stones at Wembley have created some of the biggest music moments in history. The music legends famously sang You Can’t Always Get What You Want but with yet another tour scheduled, it seems this time you can. Here’s an overview of The Rolling Stones concerts at Wembley.
The Rolling Stones first performed at Wembley to promote their album, Tattoo You which was critically acclaimed. The Rolling Stones 1982 European tour set list included hits such as, Black Limousine, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction and Jumpin Jack Flash. Back in 1982, it was rumoured this would be The Rolling Stones final London concert – The Rolling Stones seemed to have respectfully disagreed.
In 1990, The Rolling Stones played an incredible five nights at Wembley. Seven years after semi-retirement, The Rolling Stones payed one of their greatest ever shows to over 60,000 enthusiastic fans. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman proved time hadn’t aged them as they owned the stage. It seems this night in 1990, The Rolling Stones could get some satisfaction.
Just five years after that inspired performance, The Rolling Stones returned to Wembley Stadium. The Rolling Stones Lounge tour promoted their 22nd studio album, Voodoo Lounge. Mick Jagger famously told the crowd “once were on stage, the question is answered.” Wembley Stadium reached full capacity with 207,340 tickets sold over three dates.
The Rolling Stones stepped out once again onto Wembley Stadium’s prestigious stage. In 1999, The Rolling Stones No Security tour took them across Europe and North America. For two hours, The Rolling Stones played the hits that made them with classic hits of Gimmie Shelter and You Can’t Always Get What You Want celebrating their success in style.
Not Wembley Stadium, but close. The Rolling Stones ‘Licks tour’ took them to Wembley Arena. The Rolling Stones Licks tour celebrated their 40th anniversary compilation album. This tour became the second highest grossing tour of all time.
If there’s one thing to take away from this, it’s there is nothing like seeing The Rolling Stones at Wembley. They’re a part of the venues rich and detailed history, their songs echoing out, their energy as alive and palpable as it was in 1982. Though The Rolling Stones currently have no UK tour dates scheduled, they’ve made a statement expressing they would like to perform in the UK in 2018 at some of the largest stadiums, potentially even Wembley Stadium.
