On May 9th the Rolling Stones announced their 13 date European #StonesNoFilter Tour. Tickets are already on sale and going fast! No, I won't be joining my friends in Europe this time around, but wish everyone a fabulous and safe journey this Fall.
Ronnie Wood announced just yesterday, May 24, that he successfully had a lesion removed from his lung and is all clear for the Fall tour. Phew!
Keith is selling his Manhattan apartment, it's been on the market for a while at over 12 million, with no takers. He only bought the apartment a few years ago. Now he & Patti are auctioning the contents of the apartment for charities that benefit adults with developmental disabilities in their home state of Connecticut.
As for me, my days of traveling abroad are most likely over and I'm OK with that. I have seen the Stones so far 82 times in 4 different countries, and I am grateful for that. I just don't have the funds to travel abroad anymore. I have spent the last 25 months worrying about the health and welfare of my aging parents and these days there are more important things on my plate than the Rolling Stones. I still love them dearly. And if anyone wants to finance my trip to Europe, I'm all for it
For those of you who aren't aware, Ian Hunter, is my all time favorite musician next to Keith. I hold him in the same esteem as Keith. And, he is also on tour currently and I can see him about 10 times for the price of one Stones show. I just saw him 4 times, with my 5th show coming up on June 2. If you ever were a Mott The Hoople or Ian fan, you MUST go see Ian Hunter and the Rant Band, also about to begin a month log jaunt to Europe beginning early June. Ian turns 78 on June 3 and is still rocking as hard as the Stones. If you're a Stones fan, I guarantee you will love Ian Hunter and his fabulous Rant Band!
That's it from here, peace, love and rock n' roll kids! xo BL
