English rock stars, The Rolling Stones have kicked off their European tour with a performance in Madrid to mark six decades since the band was formed.

It follows the band’s “No Filter” tour, which started in 2017 but couldn’t happen in North America and had to be postponed due to the pandemic.
After a long delay, the band resumed the tour late last year, wrapping it up with a million tickets sold, although missing their drummer 80-year-old Charlie Watts who died in August.
The Rolling Stones helped define the Swinging Sixties and the hippie era with timeless hits such as “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”.
Frontman Mick Jagger, 78, and fellow band members Keith Richards, also 78 and Ronnie Wood, who turns 75 today, arrived in the Spanish capital last week.
