Start me up! The Rolling Stones have announced a U.S. stadium tour for 2019. Dubbed the “No Filter” tour, the concerts will kick off on April 20 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, and will include 13 shows. The final show will be at Soldier Field in Chicago on June 21.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Nov. 30 at 10 a.m., though there are a number of pre-sales before that. This is the classic rock band’s first extended run of concerts in the United States since the “Zip Code” tour in 2015.
Despite the fact that they’ve been performing for more than 50 years, the band says they’re not throwing in the towel any time soon.
“No, other people have always said this could be the last one,” guitarist Keith Richards said in an interview on iHeart Radio in response to other big bands of their era going on “farewell” tours. “I never think of it that way, no. This is a ‘hello again’ tour.”
Jagger says that performing regularly keeps their energy up.
“Well, we’ve been pretty regularly on the road — we’ve not been doing long, long, long stints we’ve been doing a lot of short ones,” he explained. “Last year we did a lot in U.K. and a little bit in Europe. We’re keeping our hand in and not getting too rusty, I hope. I haven’t been to quite a few of these places in a while.”
The band is working on a new studio album, and they also have three special releases forthcoming: a remastered “Beggars Banquet” reissue, a restored version of the documentary “Sympathy for the Devil” and an expanded reissue of the “Rock and Roll Circus” video and album.
