Rolling Stones Is Back Home for First London Gig in 5 Years
Music

The Stones last played in the city back in 2013, when they headlined two shows at Hyde Park.

AceShowbiz - The Rolling Stones hit the stage in their native London for the first time in five years on Tuesday night, May 22, and declared it was "great to be back".

The rockers performed at the London Stadium and treated fans to a hits-packed set, including Under My Thumb and It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It).

The Stones last played in the city back in 2013, when they headlined two shows at Hyde Park, and guitarist Keith Richards was a little apprehensive about the London weather before the big show.

"Depending on the weather! It will be great, I'm sure," he told Press Association. "I mean, we started there (London), and they will probably be our most critical audience. Playing your home town makes you nervous."

"It's a joy to play with these guys, you know," he added. "And they all want to do it. I mean, who's going to be the first one of us to say 'I want to get off this bus?' Get out of here, right?"

The Rolling Stones kicked off the U.K. leg of their No Filter tour at the stadium after playing Dublin's Croke Park last week, May 17.
