Rolling Stones announce North American stadium tour
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Rolling Stones are zipping across North America again.
The rock band announced a 15-city stadium tour Tuesday that will kick off May 24 at Petco Park in San Diego, California. Other stops include Columbus, Ohio; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Dallas, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; Orlando, Florida; and Nashville, Tennessee.
The so-called “Zip Code” tour will once again reunite singer Mick Jagger, drummer Charlie Watts and guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood.
The last time the Rolling Stones played North American stadiums was during their “A Bigger Bang Tour” in 2006. They opted for arena venues for their “50 & Counting” tour in 2012 and 2013.
The other lucky towns this time around? Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Kansas City, Missouri; Raleigh, North Carolina; Indianapolis, Indiana; Detroit, Michigan; Buffalo, New York; and Quebec, Canada.
But no Boston.
(To be sure graf goes here.)
To be sure, the boys did give us two memorable post-Marathon Bombing concerts in 2013. But really, how many tours do they have left in ’em?
Let’s hope at least two.
