Look for an official Rolling Stones tour announcement coming up – most likely Thursday, March 19th. The legendary band will be announcing the re-issue of their classic 1971 album, Sticky Fingers, in addition to a 14-city North American trek.
Reportedly, the band will play the entire Sticky Fingers album each show. Tracks include: “Bitch,” “Wild Horses,” “Moonlight Mile,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”, “Brown Sugar,” “You Gotta Move” (video below) and “Dead Flowers.”
The tour is to kickoff on Sunday, May 24th, at San Diego’s Petco Park, and then the band will likely head up to a stop at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. For San Diego, it is likely tickets will go on sale to the general public on Monday, March 30th. There will likely be a pre-sale for American Express cardholders beginning on Thursday, March 26th, at 10:00 a.m.
Reportedly – without being officially confirmed – The Stones will play Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field on June 20th, Milwaukee on June 23rd (somewhere in town but not at the Brewers’ baseball park), the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 4th and Buffalo’s Ralph Wilson Stadium on July 11th. Other stops are said to include Red Rocks in Colorado and somewhere in NYC (but not Manhattan). There will be Canadian cities on the tour, which could include a festival.
The inside scoop is that the tour venues (not surprisingly) will be stadiums and amphitheaters. There could also be a Los Angeles promotional warm-up show of some sort in the latter half of May.
Lastly, Ron Wood is releasing a book of his 1965 tour diary in June to coincide with these upcoming show dates. Read more about Ronnie’s project here.
