Last week I had the distinct honor of photographing the Rolling Stones when they performed as a part of their No Filter Tour at Friends Arena here in Stockholm, Sweden.
Not many bands or artists can claim a career like the Stones. They formed 55 years ago in 1962. They have released 30 studio albums, 13 live albums, and a 109 singles. They are fourth highest selling band of all time. When it comes to concerts and performing live they have held over 48 tours, four of them are in the top five highest grossing of all time. The Rolling Stones have been in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame since 1989, that is almost 30 years ago on it’s own.
That’s one hell of a career and this late into it is exactly why I couldn’t pass up on going to photograph this concert for Getty/Redferns. Might not be so many more opportunities to see them live.
