60 years of Rolling Stones: After a short delay due to heavy rain, the legendary rock band really heated up the Munich audience for over two hours.

The Rolling Stones are back: on Sunday evening they gave their first of two Germany concerts in Munich’s Olympic Stadium – and frontman Mick Jagger surprised them with his amazing knowledge of Bavarian: “Servus Minga”, he greeted his audience in the national language.

Later he tells in perfect German that he was in the English Garden and had a beer there. Bikini weather was there the day before – but: “not many bikinis tonight”. The start of the concert was delayed due to a heavy thunderstorm with torrential rain. Shortly after the Brits entered the stage, even the evening sun came through a little.

The Rolling Stones started their European tour for the 60th band anniversary just a few days ago in Madrid. The concert in Munich also began with a homage to Charlie Watts, the band’s drummer, who died last year. “It’s our first European tour without Charlie,” said Jagger (78). “We miss him very much.”

Not only because of this gesture, it was a very emotional, more than two-hour show that Jagger and the guitarists Keith Richards (78) and Ronnie Wood (75) brought to the stage with many old hits like “Honky Tonk Women”, ” Jumpin’ Jack Flash» and – at the very end – «(I can’t get no) Satisfaction».

Shortly before the start of the anniversary tour, guitarist Ronnie Wood had spoken in an interview about a possible farewell to the legendary rock band from the big stage. He needs his full energy in the summer, Wood told the Spanish edition of Esquire magazine. “After all, we are facing the last tour.” When asked what he meant by that, Wood backtracked a bit. «Well, every tour is the last. You never know what’s going to happen next.”
