The Rolling Stones have finally given fans their Satisfaction Thursday, but on a Tuesday. After teasing a tour announcement that was delayed, the Stones have announced the Zip Code Tour for 15 cities across North America this summer.
As previously reported, the Stones will kick off the tour in San Diego on May 24th at Petco Park. The tour will make stops in Columbus, Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Detroit and Buffalo before wrapping in Quebec on July 15th at Le Festival D’Été de Québec.
“We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer,” front man Mick Jagger states. “We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs.”
“We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America! I can’t wait to get back on the stage!” guitarist Keith Richards adds.
The Rolling Stones Zip Code Tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 On Fire Tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll”, as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalog.
The Rolling Stones Zip Code Tour will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007’s A Bigger Bang Tour.
Tickets go on sale April 13th for the AEG Live promoted tour. The Quebec stop goes on sale April 11th.
The Rolling Stones have also announced that they are re-releasing their classic 1971 album Sticky Fingers, along with previously unreleased material and alternative re-workings of beloved album tracks.
The album captured The Rolling Stones at the peak of their powers and features timeless tracks such as ‘Brown Sugar’, ‘Wild Horses’, ‘Bitch’, ‘Sister Morphine’ and ‘Dead Flowers’, and will be re-issued in a variety of formats on May 26th.
