Concerts West/AEG PresentsSome more details have been unveiled about the just-announced 2018 leg of The Rolling Stones‘ No Filter Tour, which includes the band’s first shows in their U.K. homeland since 2013. All four of the group’s core members have issued statements commenting about the trek.

Guitarist Keith Richards says, “It’s such a joy to play with this band. There’s no stopping us, we’re only just getting started, really.”

Mick Jagger adds, “This part of the No Filter tour is really special for The Stones. We are looking forward to getting back onstage in the summer and playing to fans in the U.K. and Ireland. It’s always exhilarating going to cities we haven’t played for quite a while and also some new venues for us like Old Trafford & The London Stadium.'”

Drummer Charlie Watts notes, “The Stones audience is the glue that keeps us together. The best and most satisfying moment is when you are reaching the end of the show and they are all going nuts.”

And guitarist Ronnie Wood says, “When I look out at the sea of people when we play, all I can see is smiles. It’s heart-warming and I’m glad we make people happy. Music makes me happy, and it makes them happy…it’s infectious.”

The tour starts in Dublin, Ireland, on May 17 and wraps up July 8 in Warsaw, Poland. It’ll also stop at London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff in the U.K.; as well as Berlin; Marseille, France; Stuttgart, Germany; and Prague.
