The Rolling Stones are going on tour soon, so grab those Rolling Stones tickets before they are sold out! They will be performing in cities such as San Diego, Dallas, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Detroit, to name just a few. Here you can buy tickets for The Rolling Stones 2015 tour.

Now, looking back, here you have 5 smashing facts about the fabulous band:

1. They had early success with a cover of the Beatles, “I Wanna Be Your Man”, a song originally written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The Rolling Stones recorded the single first, then The Beatles produced their own version.

2. When The Rolling Stones first appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1964, Sullivan didn’t like them. After the legendary appearance, Sullivan told Stones management that the mop-topped rockers would never again appear on his show. But the band would go on to appear five more times on the CBS Sunday-night variety show.

3. The band filmed an ad in England for cereals! Hard to believe Mick and Keith once sang: “Wake up in the morning, there’s a snap around the place, wake up in the morning, there’s a crackle in your face. Wake up in the morning, there’s a pop that really says Rice Krispies for you.” 

4. Angelina Jolie starred in one of their music videos. The band’s 1997 music video for “Anybody Seen My Baby” presented the young actress as a stripper. Jolie was reported to be relentlessly pursued by Mick afterwards.

5. The Rolling Stones don’t like their psychedelic period. Jagger has called 1967’s ‘Their Satanic Majesties Request’ “a lot of rubbish,” adding that they had done too many drugs and simply had “too much time on our hands.”
