    The Rolling Stones "Hackney Diamonds Tour" was a legendary concert series that took place in the summer of 2012, marking the band's return to their roots in East London. Named after the borough of Hackney, known for its vibrant culture and diverse communities, the tour was a celebration of the band's rich history and enduring legacy.

    The "Hackney Diamonds Tour" was part of the Rolling Stones' larger "50 & Counting" anniversary celebrations, commemorating their 50th year as a band. Despite being well into their fifth decade as rock icons, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts showed no signs of slowing down as they embarked on this historic tour.

    The highlight of the "Hackney Diamonds Tour" was a series of intimate concerts held at the Hackney Empire, a historic theater in the heart of East London. These shows offered lucky fans the chance to see the Rolling Stones up close and personal, performing in a more intimate setting than their usual stadium shows.

    The Hackney Empire concerts featured a mix of classic hits and deep cuts from the Rolling Stones' extensive catalog, spanning their entire career. From iconic anthems like "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" and "Paint It Black" to lesser-known gems like "Monkey Man" and "Sweet Virginia," the band delivered electrifying performances that thrilled audiences and left them wanting more.

    In addition to the Hackney Empire shows, the "Hackney Diamonds Tour" also included surprise performances at various venues across East London. From impromptu gigs at local pubs to surprise appearances at street parties and festivals, the Rolling Stones delighted fans with their unannounced performances, showcasing their love for their hometown and its vibrant music scene.

    The "Hackney Diamonds Tour" was not only a celebration of the Rolling Stones' remarkable career but also a testament to the enduring power of rock 'n' roll. With their infectious energy, undeniable talent, and unbridled enthusiasm, Mick Jagger and the band proved once again why they are considered one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

    Though the "Hackney Diamonds Tour" was a relatively short-lived event, its impact was felt far beyond the streets of East London. It served as a reminder of the Rolling Stones' roots and their deep connection to the city where it all began, while also giving fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness rock history in the making.

    The Rolling Stones have announced they are going back on the road with a brand-new tour performing in 16 cities across the U.S. and Canada, stopping in East Rutherford, NJ on May 23 & 26, 2024 at MetLife Stadium. Fans can expect to experience Mick, Keith and Ronnie play their most popular hits ranging from “Start Me Up,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Satisfaction” and more, as well as fan favorite deep cuts and music from their new album HACKNEY DIAMONDS. The legendary rockers will be returning to the road following the success of their history-making and chart-topping studio album HACKNEY DIAMONDS, which has just received a Grammy nomination for the project’s lead single “Angry.” Showcasing a new stage and high energy that only the Stones can bring as one of the world’s most iconic artists ever, this tour will guarantee a show to remember.

    This past October, The Rolling Stones took over a New York City club, Racket NYC, to celebrate the release of Hackney Diamonds and turned it into a rock show, garnering rave reviews and giving the lucky audience a taste of what’s to come. Tried and tested, these songs are ready to hit the stadiums following their incredible preview…

    Hackney Diamonds is their first studio set of new material since 2005's A Bigger Bang. Since then, the Stones have continued to smash box office records on a series of global sell-out tours and released 2016's GRAMMY® Award winning Blue & Lonesome, which featured their brilliant versions of many of the blues tracks that helped shape their sound, and topped album charts around the world. Last year, they thrilled European audiences totaling nearly a quarter of a million on the anniversary Sixty tour. The Rolling Stones have sold over 250 million albums worldwide.
