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 Berlin concert on 8 June 1982 that thousands of balloons were released, inspiring a member of the audience, the guitarist Carlo Karges from the Nena (band) to write the song 99 Luftballons, which became a worldwide hit. The tour was the last Stones would conduct for seven years.
