60s Stars on Tour this Autumn

The below list may be the most impressive we have seen in many years of legendary artists who have been active since the 60s and are currently on tour or starting their tour soon. Although many of them are only visiting one continent for now, if you live in Europe or in the US, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to catch at least one of them this Autumn.

The Rolling Stones 

The Stones are currently on a European tour and playing in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Holland this September and October. They were unable to schedule any UK dates this year due to sporting fixtures.
