Fun Facts

First Show: On July 12, 1962, Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Ian Stewart, Dick Taylor, and (according to Richards) Mick Avory took the stage at the Marquee Jazz Club in London for the very first time, playing blues tunes like “Kansas City”, “Dust My Broom”, and “Confessin’ the Blues”.

Most Played City: The Stones have played their hometown of London, UK, a whopping 216 times over the course of their career, due in large part to their early ‘60s jazz club days where they learned to perfect their rock and roll swagger.

Most Played Venue: Between 1962 and 1963, the Stones played London’s Ken Colyer Jazz Club (also called Studio 51) a recorded 43 times as they tried to get their start as a group. It was here that John Lennon and Paul McCartney offered them the song “I Wanna Be Your Man”, which would take the Stones to No. 12 on the UK charts.

Most Covered Song: Jagger and company have covered the rock and roll classic “Not Fade Away” by Buddy Holly & the Crickets a reported 185 times in their history, making it their 26th most played song. Other Stones favorites include Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone”, Chuck Berry’s “Little Queenie”, and Robert Johnson’s “Love in Vain”.

Largest Audience: On February 18, 2006, Copacabana Beach in Rio De Janeiro hosted the Stones’ biggest show ever, a free event which attracted approximately 1.5 million concertgoers. The show is one of the largest in history and, for those who experienced it, remains unforgettably “historic.”

Highest Grossing Tour: The Stones’ “A Bigger Bang Tour”, which spanned 144 dates between 2005 and 2007, remains their highest earner and was the highest grossing tour of all time when it concluded, bringing in an estimated $558,255,524. The tour has since been topped only by U2, Ed Sheeran, and Guns N’ Roses.
