Fans of The Rolling Stones were pleased to hear that the rockers were back in business and took to the stage again last spring - the first time they had played in the UK for five years.

The band, who have been chart-toppers since they formed in 1962, performed in the UK as part of their Stones - No Filter tour.

They kicked off the British leg on May 17th when Mick Jagger, 76, Keith Richards, 76, Charlie Watts, 78 and Ronnie Wood, 72, played at Dublin's Croke Park. They also performed at the London Stadium, Old Trafford Football Stadium in Manchester, BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, Twickenham Stadium, and Principality Stadium in Cardiff, before heading to Europe.

Jagger said performing in Britain is "really special" for the group, having not played here since 2013.

"We are looking forward to getting back onstage in the summer and playing to fans in the UK and Ireland. It's always exhilarating going to cities we haven't played for quite a while and also some new venues for us," the veteran rocker stated.

Despite the members being in their 70s, the group did not let age get in their way, with Richards saying: "We're just getting started really."

Before the UK tour, The Rolling Stones won a Grammy award for their latest album Blue & Lonesome, with their new material.

Tickets for the gigs went on sale (March 2nd 2018), and were snapped up straight away due to the band's popularity. Indeed, they were likely to require strong crowd barriers at their shows to make sure their fans stayed safe.
