"It's a dream come true to be asked to open for the mighty Rolling Stones - the best Rock n Roll band EVER. "
“We are so excited to be supporting the Rolling Stones, it is a huge honour to be playing with one of our biggest influences.”
Florence + The Machine
“The Rolling Stones are one of our favourite bands. We love them so much we named a song after them. At their best they are unparalleled, and few artists will go down in history for being as good for as long. Supporting them in Hyde Park in 2013 was a career defining moment for our band and we have no doubt that playing with them in Southampton, at the stadium I visited every week as a boy, will be just as special.”
“I went to school in Gloucester & was very aware that Brian Jones was a local hero from Cheltenham although I never got to see him play. I did, however, get to go to Hyde Park for what turned out to be a memorial for him. Years later in NY, I was introduced to my guitar hero Keith Richards by Dave Jordan. Keith brought me a bag of guitar effects & I was so in awe that I couldn’t speak about all the things I wanted to - Brian, Hyde Park, how The Stones had influenced me, I couldn’t even say thank you for the effects pedals! Years later, this little black kid now gets to share the stage in what became his home town of Coventry with the legends that are The Stones! - Funny old life!!”
Lynval Golding - The Specials
"I saw The Stones at Glastonbury and it blew me away. To play with them is not just to share a stage with THE rock and roll band of all time it's to connect with everything that came before them. They are a conduit to the very roots of youth culture and rebellion. And they are a f*cking amazing band."
Guy Garvey, elbow
“I grew up listening to this band. I was lucky enough to be on the bill with them for their legendary Hyde Park show in 2013 and had the honour of Ronnie joining us on stage at Brixton Academy in 2015. This is a band key to my musical education, so it’s such a privilege to announce I’ll be opening for The Rolling Stones at Twickenham Stadium this June.”
Part two of the ‘STONES - NO FILTER’ tour, sponsored by Jeep®, sponsor of The Rolling Stones European tours since 2014, will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood back on the road, continuing on from their hugely successful sold out European tour last year.
