Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood - the Rolling Stones - are chillin' in Dublin this week ahead of their Thursday Croke Park gig.
The Rolling Stones may be old age pensioners, but they’re still able to rock and will start their new world tour in Dublin at Croke Park on Thursday night.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood fired up their private jet and landed in Dublin on Sunday to rehearse and unwind. Not long after landing Mick took off for the lovely Dublin town of Malahide to watch Ireland’s cricket team face off against Pakistan.

Jagger, 74, even tweeted from the match. “It’s great to be back in Ireland, first stop was their inaugural cricket test match versus Pakistan #cricket #Ireland,” he – or probably more likely, one of his peeps – wrote.
The Irish Sun reports that Mick has taken residence in a suite at the Merrion Hotel, while the others will have to survive at the nearby InterContinental.
It’s going to be a packed house at Croke Park on Thursday night, with 70,000 tickets sold. That’s not surprising – the Stones last played Dublin in 2007.
