The Rolling Stones have revealed a new design of their trademark blade to celebrate their 60th anniversary and the upcoming European tour.
His band, which includes current members Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, is kicking off their SIXTY tour this summer.
To mark the anniversary and touring, award-winning British designer Mark Norton created a new version of the Stones’ famous tongue-shaped logo.
The new design uses the original tongue border, but the classic red color has been replaced with a mix of bright tones, with a pink and gold border surrounding the vibrant blue pattern.
The original tongue was created by British designer John Pasche in 1970 and has become synonymous with the band.
The new tour will include 14 shows in 10 countries across Europe, starting in Madrid on June 1.
The Stones will also return to their home turf, with a concert at Liverpool FC’s Anfield Stadium and two shows at BTS Hyde Park in London.
When the Stones take to the stage in Hyde Park on June 25, another veteran musician will perform on the world famous Pyramid stage at Glastonbury.
Sir Paul McCartney is making a splash at Worthy Farm for the second time, last performing there in 2004.
The Stones will join their SIXTY tour by Steve Jordan on drums following the death of the band’s longtime drummer Charlie Watts.
Jordan, 65, was drafted to play on the Stones’ No Filter tour last year when Watts was unable to perform due to health issues.
Watts later died on August 24, 2021 at the age of 80.
The SIXTY tour will include some classic Stones songs like Gimme Shelter, Jumpin’ Jack Flash and (I Can’t Get No) Satisatis.
The show will also feature a highly advanced production process that includes sprawling stages, advanced lighting and state-of-the-art video design.
– The Rolling Stones’ SIXTY tour will run from June 1 to July 31, 2022.
