The Rolling Stones joined by Ukrainian choir in Vienna

The Rolling Stones were joined by a Ukrainian choir during their show at Ernst Happel Stadium in Vienna, Austria on July 15.

As Rolling Stone notes, The Dzvinochok boys choir and Vognyk girls choir traveled from Kyiv despite the ongoing war with Russia to sing the 1969 Stones classic, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”

“They came long way to be here tonight,” Mick Jagger told the audience. “They drove all the way.” (It’s a fifteen hour journey.)

“This is a very special night for the two choirs and a chance of a lifetime not to be missed,” said choirmaster Ruben Tolmachov. “I’m so glad we made it here to Vienna a night to remember for all of us.”

The Vienna event marked the 9th stop on The Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary European tour.

“A wonderful show in Vienna, thanks so much!”, shared the group on social media. “And a huge thank you to the amazing choirs that joined us all the way from Ukraine for the encore!”

The Rolling Stones will continue the 2022 tour with a July 19 stop in Lyon, France.
