it’s not the first time that The War On Drugs and The Rolling Stones have crossed paths, back in 2020 The War on Drugs’ Adam Granduciel remixed Scarlet – a song from the Stones’ Goats Head Soup sessions that emerged on the 1973 album’s reissue. Scarlet also featured Led Zeppelin‘s Jimmy Page. Granuciel said at the time, ” I just re-imagined the song as if I had Mick, Keith and Jimmy in the room with me…. I’m so honored to have gotten to work on this especially since Angie was probably the first ‘rock’ song that I asked to be played on repeat when I was really young.”
it was previously announced that Echo & The Bunnymen would support the Stones at their Anfield, Liverpool date. “Two dreams in one – there’s nothing like The Rolling Stones, and there’s nowhere like Anfield,” Ian McCulloch from Echo And The Bunnymen recently said in a statement.
“I can’t explain how unbelievably happy and proud I am that my band Echo And The Bunnymen are going to be opening up for The Rolling Stones, THE Greatest Rock & Roll band in the history of time, at Anfield, the Shrine of Life and football…
“The Rolling Stones!!! And at Anfield!!! I feel honoured and blessed… Thank you God.”
