Get some 'Satisfaction' this Canada Day with The Rolling Stones

Dave Hogan

If you like rock performed by absolute legends who have been entertaining crowds for some 50 years, you're in luck. 

The Rolling Stones are coming to Canada for the final stop of the North American leg of their No Filter tour. Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie are hitting the Burl’s Creek Event Grounds, an hour north of Toronto and the location of the annual Boots and Hearts festival, for “Canada Rocks with The Rolling Stones” and you’re invited (assuming you purchase tickets, of course).

The Stones have already played sold-out stadiums across Europe on this tour and though their stop doesn't fall on Canada Day (it’s actually June 29th) we’re willing to make an exception and celebrate like it's July 1.

Ahead of the official announcement on Monday, observent Stones fans had speculated there might be something afoot after installments of the iconic tongue logo with the June 29 date and hashtag #StonesNoFilter were spotted around Toronto.

Plenty of History With Canada

The wild boys of rock have been playing show in the Great White North since they were young hearthrobs causing their frenzied fans to pass out thanks to overexcitement. They've played venues small(ish) and massive and even came to Toronto's rescue over 15 years ago.

In 2003, the band headlined the SARS Benefit Concert (aka SARSfest) in to reinvigorate tourism in the city after the two-year SARS outbreak made visitors nervous to spend time in the city. The band, along with other acts like Rush, Justin Timberlake and AC/DC, played to a crowd of almost 500,000 at Downsview Park in the north of the City. The Rolling Stones were most recently in Canada in 2015 for their Zip Code tour which they concluded in Quebec City.
