The Rolling Stones at Anfield: Everything you need to know about this week’s gig

06/06/2022

The Rolling Stones are celebrating 60 special years together with live dates across Europe – and they’re coming to Liverpool this week.

So if want to get satisfaction and see one of the world’s greatest and most well-known rock bands this summer, here’s everything you need to know?

When are The Rolling Stones performing in Liverpool?

They are in the city on Thursday, June 9.

Where are they performing?

Bandmates Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood will be performing at the home of Liverpool Football Club – Anfield.

Are tickets still available – and if so how much are they?

Tickets are still available. Standard seating ranges from £90.45-£324.95 with VIP packages up for grabs too.

Where can I buy tickets?

General tickets are available from www.liverpoolfc.com/therollingstones and Ticketmaster.

Who is supporting The Rolling Stones at Anfield?

They’ll be supported by Liverpool’s own Echo & The Bunnymen. Lead singer Ian McCulloch has described it as two dreams in one – supporting the Stones AND playing at Anfield. He said: “I can’t explain how unbelievably happy and proud I am that my band, Echo & The Bunnymen, are going to be opening up for The Rolling Stones, the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the history of time, at Anfield, the shrine of life and football. I feel honoured and blessed.”

Have the Stones performed in Liverpool before?

They have but it’s been a while. This will be the first time the Stones have played in the city since 1971, and it kicks off the UK leg of their new SIXTY tour.

What time will doors open?

Doors will open at 4pm and the Stones are scheduled to be on stage at 8.45pm.

What songs can I expect them to sing?

The most recent setlist in Munich was Street Fighting Man, 19th Nervous Breakdown, Rocks Off, Tumbling Dice, Out of Time, Ruby Tuesday, You Can’t Always Get What You Want, Living in a Ghost Town, Honky Tonk Women, Connection, Slipping Away, Miss You, Midnight Rambler, Start Me Up, Paint It Black, Sympathy for the Devil, and Jumpin’ Jack Flash. Encore: Gimme Shelter and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.

Will I be able to park?

There is no parking at the stadium (other than coach parking). There are a number of small car parks close to the ground but you’ll probably find it easier to use public transport.

* Merseyrail will be operating concert buses between Sandhills Station and Anfield before and after the concert. Buses will start operating from Sandhills Station at 16:30. The last bus will leave 15 minutes before the start of the concert. Return buses to Sandhills Station will operate for 1.5 hours after the end of the concert.

* For people coming from outside the city centre, Lime Street Station is the nearest mainline station, and just two miles from Anfield.

* By bus – from Liverpool City Centre, take the 26 from Liverpool ONE bus station, 17 from Queen Square Bus Station or the 917 from St Johns Lane, directly to the ground. The 68/168, which operates between Bootle and Aigburth, and the 14 and 19 (from Queen Square) stop a short walk away from the ground.

Is there anything else I should know?

One thing worth noting is that Anfield operates a no bag policy at the stadium, so do NOT bring bags (and there is no bag storage facility). The stadium also has a strict no smoking policy and there are no dedicated smoking facilities on site.
