The French love the Rolling Stones and of course the band’s lead singer Mick Jagger. And if you didn’t know yet, it is being returned to us by the one who celebrates his 79th birthday on July 26 because he is a longtime Francophile.
The Englishman discovered France when he was a child. Eva and Basil Jagger, his parents, spent several holidays with their children Mick and Chris in the Loire Valley and on the Cote d’Azur. The rock star born in 1943 still visits these places today. And when he’s not living there, Mick Jagger is performing in the biggest stadiums in the country.
The Rolling Stones gave their 54the concert in France (and 35e Parisian) of his career at the Hippodrome de Longchamp, in Paris, on Saturday July 23rd, on the occasion of sixty years of the group’s existence. This event, which was sold out, shows that the formation born in Dartford, twenty kilometers from London, in 1962, still makes people dream, thanks in part to the charisma and energy of its leader.
But do you really know all the connections that connect Mick Jagger with France?
