Rolling Stones won't play in Israel for Yom HaAtzma'ut

There was a story doing the rounds a couple of months ago that the Stones were playing Israel for Yom HaAtzma'ut (Independence Day). It was covered by many major media, but in fact was a Purim joke. (All of the mainstream online media have subsequently removed their articles about the Stones' tour, so I can't link to them. But believe me that they were there)

So, since you can't see them live, here are the Stones on youtube (and if you watch it while in Israel you could say that you saw the Stones in Israel on Yom HaAtzma'ut). So here are 6 decades of the Rolling Stones in concert:

From 1964, a group of young people from London


Stones in 1971 Live in the Marquee Club, London


Rolling Stones in 1981 in Houston


1998 in Bremen (without Bill Wyman)


In Boston in 2005


London 02 Arena 2012


Next year in Jerusalem!

And finally, the best mute Stones impersonation I've seen today, by Noel Fielding on Never Mind the Buzzcocks (which is a British game show with two teams of mildly famous people doing silly things with rock music). Make sure you watch to the end when Phil Jupitus does his Brian Jones impersonation too)
