Brexit is a nightmare for the music industry. In an interview with The Sunday Times has The Rolling Stones-frontmanMick Jagger has expressed his dismay with Brexit and its impact on his professional life. “There are a lot of supply chain issues,” he said. “Many shortages, many problems due to Brexit. Brexit has not been a success for the UK touring music industry.”
Jagger continued: “I’m not saying, ‘Well, we need to join the EU again.’ Unfortunately that is all a thing of the past. But from personal experience and talking to friends who are in other companies, it’s not a success, it’s a nightmare. We’ve isolated ourselves, and that sounds good to some, but it’s more of an ideology than a practical matter.”
In the past, Jagger has also been critical of Brexit. For example, in 2017 he composed two songs “England Lost” and “Gotta Get A Grip” to express his opinion on the matter.
