The Rolling Stones announced today (May 9) they will play 13 shows in 12 different venues across Europe in September and October, and unveiled the title of the new stadium tour: Stones – No Filter. [A 14th date–their third in Paris–was added on May 17.]

The European dates follows last year’s tour of South America culminating in the historic concert in Havana, Cuba, as well as their two performances last October at the Desert Trip festival in Indio, California.

The announcement says “the Rolling Stones will treat their European fans to a set list packed full of classics such as ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘Paint It Black’, ‘Jumpin Jack Flash’, ‘Tumbling Dice’ and ‘Brown Sugar,’ but they will also include a couple of unexpected tracks each night, and randomly selected surprises from their formidable arsenal of songs. For all of the European No Filter shows listed below the Stones will be unveiling a spectacular new production and state of the art stage design.”

On May 11, they apologized to their fans in the U.K. for not scheduling any dates there…

Last December, the Stones returned to their blues roots with the release of the well-received, stripped-down Blues & Lonesome album. (Read our review here.)

Best Classic Bands reviewed the first of two Stones concerts at Desert Trip, last October, noting: “The Stones may not be the baddest band in the land anymore — despite [Mick] Jagger and [Ronnie] Wood’s efforts — but they still know how to put on a spectacle. Finishing their set with muscular versions of “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Brown Sugar” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” it was easy to tell with [Keith] Richards’ scorching guitar leading the way, that the band was cooking all night.”

When the tour begins, the members’ ages will be: Jagger (74), Richards (73), Wood (70) and Charlie Watts (76).

    Damn..any word on them playing here in the US? They’re one of the few bands I’ve never seen and I can’t afford to cross the pond to see them. That sounds really cool that they’re gonna mix things up and throw in some surprises. I’d be happy to hear the whole blues album they released though in a stadium they’re more likely to do mostly well known tunes. They should just do what Phish is doing and set up shop at MSG for 10-15 nights. At least then there’d be a halfway decent chance of scoring tix.
