Rolling Stones Exhibitionism Heads To Sydney Because Mick Jagger’s Mum Was From Marrickville

Mick Jagger is half-Australian. His mother Eva was born in Marrickville so it stands to reason the Rolling Stones Exhibitionism was destined for Sydney over any other Australian city.

Jagger’s grandparents Gertrude and Alfred Scutts emigrated to Australia in 1912. Gertrude and Alfred settled in the inner Sydney suburb of Marrickville. Alfred worked as a boat builder on Garden Island in Sydney Harbour. Eva was born in Marrickville in 1913.

Four years later the family decided to return to England. Gertrude left with her fours boys and daughter Eva. Alfred was not allowed to leave because it was wartime. He was meant to come back later. He never did.

Years later, one of the boys, Percy (Eva’s brother), decided to return to Australia to live with his father. Percy started Mick’s current Australian lineage. Sydney is full of Jagger cousins. Mick recognises his Australian family. On the last Stones tour, over 100 Jagger family and friends guests attended the Sydney concert.

The Rolling Stones Exhibitionism is currently on display in Las Vegas.

Exhibition in Sydney is scheduled for November 2018. That most likely means a Stones show while happen in 2018 in Australia as well. Stones scouts were out searching for a suitable location for a 2018 Australian show in November. However, it is most likely that the show will be at Hanging Rock in Victoria.

Hanging Rock is the only place in 50 years where the Stones have cancelled twice. The first time was when the Australian tour was postponed following the death of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L’Wren Scott. The second, on the rescheduled tour, was also cancelled after Mick came down with a throat infection mid-tour.

With all of the Stones members planning on coming to Australia for Exhibition is Sydney, it is now highly likely that the Hanging Rock no-shows will finally be rectified, especially with the late 2017 scout activity.

The Rolling Stones do not currently have any dates for 2018 confirmed.
