Smartly dressed in pink, Mick Jagger smiles and waves at photographers as he steps out of his Manchester hotel – hours before his Rolling Stones performance in Liverpool. Like his bandmates, the 78-year-old rocker resides in central Manchester as the UK leg of the Stones’ European tour ‘Sixty’ kicks off to celebrate 60 glorious years of performing.
After the tour started in Madrid and Munich, Mick, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood flew their own famous jet to Manchester Airport to start the UK leg of the tour. Mick was caught enjoying the venues of Liverpool, but he and his bandmates have stayed in Manchester.

At about 3pm, Mick emerged smiling from the Stock Exchange Hotel in Manchester city center before making the short drive up East Lancs Road to Liverpool to prepare for the concert in front of 50,000 fans at Anfield stadium – the first Rolling Stones concert in Liverpool since 1971.
Mick looked cool, of course, in a pink jacket and pink baseball cap as he left the hotel, waving to fans and photographers. Obviously Keith Richards is staying at the Lowry and Ronnie Wood in Dakota hotels, both in central Manchester.
The trio of longtime rockers have been joined by drummer Steve Jordan following the death of Charlie Watts in August 2021.
Formed in London in 1962, The Stones started out playing covers before writing their own song. They became one of the best-selling bands of all time.
The tour kicked off on June 1 in Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, followed by a concert in Munich at the Olympic Stadium. They also perform two nights in London’s Hyde Park. The tour will visit ten countries and will end on July 31 with a concert at the Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
Earlier this week, Jagger shared photos of himself in Liverpool outside the Liver Building, with the statue of Cilla Black in Mathew Street and outside the Empire Theater next to Lime Street.
Alongside the photos, Mick said on Twitter: “It’s been so long since I was in Liverpool, looking forward to Anfield tomorrow night.”
