The Rolling Stones’ European Tour 1982 was a concert tour of Europe to promote the album Tattoo You. It was in effect the European continuation of their long and successful 1981 US tour, and promoted by Bill Graham. It was during the West Berlin concert on 8 June 1982 that thousands of balloons were released, inspiring a member of the audience, the guitarist Carlo Karges from the band Nena to write the song “99 Luftballons”, which became a worldwide hit.
The final show of the tour has been released as Live at Leeds; the tour was the last the Stones would conduct for seven years. In Turin, in their first show in Italy since 1970, the band had to play at 3 PM in order to allow the audience to watch the final match of the football world cup between Italy and West Germany.
