The Rolling Stones announce new tour, stop at Arrowhead Stadium in June
Since early March, billboards throughout the country have been cryptically hinting at a Rolling Stones tour. The Internet has been riled up with speculation, and now, we finally have a concert date to tattoo onto our forearms. The Rolling Stones – frontman Mick Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ron Wood and drummer Charlie Watts – will be performing at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday, June 27.
This is the third time the Rolling Stones will perform at Arrowhead; the band first performed there in June 1975, then again in October 1989. (In December 1981, the band performed two back-to-back shows at Kemper Arena, and stopped there again in 1999.)
The Zip Code tour coincides with the rerelease of the Stones’ seminal 1971 album, Sticky Fingers, on May 26. Concertgoers can expect a setlist packed with classic cuts – though the rumor that the band would be playing Sticky Fingers in its entirety seems to have been just a hope and a dream. (Though you can still expect plenty of cuts from that record.)
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, April 13, at 10 a.m. Details via the Rolling Stones website.
