The Rolling Stones' 1967 European Tour was a concert tour by the band to promote their new album Between The Buttons and new single Lets Spend The Night Together and Ruby Tuesday. The tour commenced on 25 March and concluded on 17 April 1967. It was the last Rolling Stones concert tour to include Brian Jones, who initially formed and named the band.

This tour would also be the first time a rock band from the Western Hemisphere would play behind the Iron Curtain when on 13 April they played two shows at the Palace of Culture and Science building in Warsaw, Poland. The tickets to the concert were given out by the Communist Party, much to the bands dismay. The people who did attend were told to behave accordingly during the concert or they would be removed from the venue. After the concerts, the band drove down the streets distributing their records to fans. Visiting Soviet officials were not pleased by the Rolling Stones performance and it would be a long while before the Stones would return to the soviet-bloc nations.

"They thought the show was so awful, so decadent, that they said this would never happen in Moscow,"-- Mick Jagger.
