Sixty years of career and still as much energy on stage: The Rolling Stones ended their “SIXTY” European tour on Wednesday evening with a final concert in Berlin in the form of an emotional show, reports AFP.
“This is our 118th appearance in Germany and you are still as effervescent,” Mick Jagger told the more than 22,000 spectators in German at the Waldbühne, a picturesque open-air amphitheater located in a forest west of the German capital.
The legendary British group, on a European tour to mark its 60th anniversary, dedicated its last show to Charlie Watts, the band’s drummer who died last year.
“When I got to Berlin last night, I had a drink in his honor. After five drinks, I spoke perfect German!” exclaimed the group’s 79-year-old frontman. Mick Jagger was on stage, to the applause of the public, with his colleagues, guitarists Keith Richards, 78 years old, and Ronnie Wood, 75 years old.
