THE ROLLING STONES: Starting up again with their 'No Filter' tour
The Rolling Stones start the next leg of their No Filter tour tonight (Thursday) in Dublin, Ireland.
Having last played in October (in Germany), they begin again in Europe. Regardless of where they are performing, it's all home sweet home for Keith Richards, as he recently said in an interview with BBC Radio 4.
Keith Richards talked about touring:
"You know, I get this weird feeling that I'm at home when I get up there. I mean after so long it's the home away from home. And as Ronnie [Wood] and I go up there, we say, 'C'mon, let's go and get some peace and quiet, you know."
The 14-date tour stays in the British Isles through a London show on June 19th and then heads to Germany, France, the Czech Republic and winds up in Warsaw, Poland on July 8th.
