The Rolling Stones are turning 60 this year and by all accounts, it’ll be a worldwide celebration.

It all began over the weekend when the band put out a brand new version of their famous tongue logo with the hashtag #StonesSIXTY. Mick Jagger joined in on the fun with a video from his porch as he and his cat swiped through different logos until arriving at one that pleased both of them.

The tease culminated in the announcement of the band’s first tour dates of 2022. The Stones will be celebrating their 60th anniversary with their summer 2022 European SIXTY tour that’s set to kick off in Madrid on June 1st.

The tour will see the band perform a total of fourteen shows this summer including their first gig in Liverpool in over 50 years. You can find the full list of tour dates below and if you feel like making the trip across the pond, grab tickets here.

A tour isn’t the only thing the Stones have planned to celebrate the big anniversary. Keith Richards was a guest on CBS Sunday Morning over the weekend and revealed that the band has been working on songwriting together.

Alongside Jagger and drummer Steve Jordan, who toured with the group following the passing of Charlie Watts, Richards says the trio have about eight or nine new songs.

“It’ll be interesting to find out the dynamics now that Steve’s in the band,” Richards said. “It’s sort of metamorphosing into something else. I was working with Mick last week, and Steve, and we came up with some, eight or nine new pieces of material. Which is overwhelming by our standards. Other times, [it’s] like a desert.”
