The Rolling Stones may have sadly lost drummer Charlie Watts last year but they show no sign of stopping as they toured relentlessly through their 60th anniversary year in 2022. Now Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood have today announced a special online concert event for fans in the new year.
The Rolling Stones’ immersive virtual concert celebrates the release of GRRR Live!, a star-studded show from the band’s 50th anniversary tour in 2012. The iconic performance included guest appearances by The Black Keys, Lady Gaga, Gary Clark Jr, John Mayer, Mick Taylor and Bruce Springsteen. Plus Watts on drums, of course.
Recorded during the Stones’ 50 & Counting Tour, the concert has not been available to fans since it was originally aired on pay-per-view a decade ago – until now. The concert event will take place on February 2 at 8pm GMT and tickets are now on sale.

A statement from the band added: “The GRRR Live! experience will bring this history-making concert to fans around the world on RollingStonesNewark.com via interactive video company Kiswe’s global live streaming technology. The concert features some of the greatest songs of all time including It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It), Honky Tonk Women, Start Me Up, Gimme Shelter, Sympathy For The Devil and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. Unlike viewing performances on other platforms, Kiswe Live allows the fans to be part of the experience. Fans from all over the world will be able to upload short video selfies of themselves to celebrate the band, the performances, see themselves on the screen and be seen by others across the globe, alongside the performance.”
