Until 1971 they always played in Liverpool.

I thought Knebworth Festival was off.

I am so ignorant on stadiums verses arenas England in starting my sales pitch to my H,
asking if any of his relatives live by Wembley, is it the stadium or arena?
No matter, concluded best to slip into country w/out telling. Still scheming.

Remember that on some recent tours they have not sold any lucky dips.

Nate

That is true. 50 & Counting North America, 14 on Fire Europe, Zip Code 2015 & No Filter have all had them so it's highly likely though by no means guranteed.

Another possibility is : get lots of tattoos, grow a beer beely, look stupid and you'll be hired as a low-level roadie for the 2018 tour. You'll see all the shows gratis and you'll get paid! grinning smiley

Well it looks like the rumoured Knebworth festival isn't happening next year:

[www.musicweek.com]

"Music Week revealed in September that the promoter was bidding to put on a new multi-day event in Knebworth Park next summer, but it is understood this is no longer being considered for 2018. However, the duo have reiterated their wish to stage a camping event "outside of a city" in the coming years."

I'd guess on two nights at Wembley Stadium plus other regional gigs.

What's your favourite flavour?...........Cherry Red!!

It's not all about 'regions'. At least 3 other countries are likely to get gigs. Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Most of the gigs will be in England where there are the biggest populations, but by no means all of them if it's 10 shows plus. England and the UK are not interchangeable terms.

Rock am Ring / Rock im Park (it's a double festival, same weekend, same bands but on different days) is very unlikely since the Stones played three shows in Germany this year (and the site of Rock am Ring is quite close to Dusseldorf and the site for Rock im Park is relavtive close to Munich).

It's very unlikely because this is a tour of the UK we are talking about here.

Mid June to August tour dates don't bode well for me. I have family obligations to be in Germany in early May and plan on spending a few days in Paris prior and a trip to Italy afterwards. Traveling is rather difficult for me these days, major back surgery that didn't turn out too well, so I highly doubt I'll be able to make a second trip across the pond a month later. sad smiley We shall see....

To make a 12 show UK tour, I guess this is more realistic?

Scotland: Glasgow - Likely, unfortunatelysad smiley Hampden Park with its crap transport links and it's a dump. Murrayfield in Edinburgh is a much better venue.

Wales: Cardiff. Stick on cert. The Principality Stadium is excellent in all respects - sound, transport, location etc.Imho, Britain's very best big venue by a mile. Holds over 70,000.

Ireland: Dublin : 2 excellent large stadia in Croke Park and the Arriva. Slane Castle too so I reckon very likely.

Northern Ireland: Belfast - I doubt it. Biggest Stadium is 18,000 so it would need to be a field. Also Belfast is only 100 miles from Dublin with good transport links.

England: Sheffield: Very unlikely. In 1995, 1999 & 2006 they played at Don Valley Athletics stadium. It's been demolished and the 2 Football Stadia have no history of gigs to speak of.

England: Manchester - Good shout. Old Trafford is hosting concerts again and the Etihad hosts concerts most years. I reckon they might even get 2 shows, with huge populations nearby.

England: Knebworth Festival - Not happening this year, according to reports. The land is owned by wealthy aristocrats and they host concerts whenever they need some liquid cash. But I reckon they'll do a festival somewhere.

England: Isle Of Man : Not in England. Along with the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey, it's a self governing British Crown Dependency and tax haven, where the super-rich squirrel away their money to dodge billions in tax. Nowhere they could play there unless a big field.

England, Wembley (4 shows) : They've not played it since it was rebuilt so a dead cert for me. They could fill it 4 times if they cut their prices, but they won't so 2-3 shows is more likely I think. The top tier is rubbish - miles from the pitch. Easy to get to, but absolutely awful to get out of afterwards!

Another possibility is Newcastle or Sunderland - 2 excellent large stadia. Maybe even Coventry, which hosts the odd show.

It will be very interesting to see what emerges.

grezgorz67:
Stadium of Light in Sunderland would be a good choice. Bruce Springsteen and other big acts have played there in recent years I think. But St. James' Park in Newcastle is not a good alternative IMO. I know the Stones have played there before, but not after the 1998 expansion of the stadium. The Leazes End is so high and steep that the stage (if placed at the other end) would seem to be miles away.

Surprised no one has mentioned Birmingham, England's 2nd biggest city with several stadiums and indoor arenas.

Why not just play 5-6 Wembley shows spread over a cpl weekends? Everyone in the UK can attend, its only cpl hundred miles after all. One stage set up, reduce the ticket prices...

I had (gladly) to go from Perth to Sydney and Adelaide for 'recent' shows in Australia...THOUSANDS of miles.

I hear you odeam and I do hope it happens. No gig since 73 is ridiculous for a city of Brom's stature. However, too many things mitigate against it. No recent history of gigs at any of the city's 3 major football stadia and, perhaps the biggest one of all, Birmingham City Council would have to be involved in any bid for a gig. As we all know, they're skint. If it was an arena tour you'd be in with s big chance with 2 excellent venues in the NIA & NEC.

TheWorst,

Agreed on Sunderland's City of Light. It has a strong recent history of gigs - you can add 'Take That' to your list. It has easier access than St James's Park too and seems to have gazumped it as the stadium gig venue of choice in the North East.

They played it three times in the 90 s & noughties ....must have liked it.


The sound was always good because it wasn't a fully enclosed football type stadium with towering stands on all sides.

You can't compare THOUSANDS of miles travelling in Australia to getting around the UK. Australia has over 7m sq km, 24m people, to UK well under 1/2m sq km, 65m people!! So I can assure you that if we all trek to the '5 - 6 Wembley shows over a couple weekends' as you suggest, with the atrocious logistics of the place (6 hours to exit the car park?) the infrastructure of the country quite simply couldn't cope, I doubt if people would be home by Xmas!

At the VL show in '95, it was a warm, sunny evening. Only my 2nd ever Stones show. It was only built in 1990 for the World Student Games and demolished just 23 years after construction. Sheffield City Council couldn't afford to run it. Liked that venue and clearly the Stones did too as they returned twice - an absolutely scandalous waste of resources.
