The last time the Stones played in Madrid was at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium In 2014.
Many older Madrileños will remember their memorable concert in 1982, at the old Atletico Madrid stadium, when a deluge of rain fell, but the band kept playing, much to the crowd’s delight.
The concert will be the first without their legendary drummer, Charlie Watts, who passed away at the age of 80 last year.
Tickets for the concert are still available with official prices from 50 to 280 Euros.
