LOS ANGELES — Last month, the Rolling Stones released “Hackney Diamonds,” their first album of original material in 18 years.
On Tuesday, the legendary English band announced that they will take it on tour.
Starting April 28 in Houston and concluding in Santa Clara, California on July 17, the Stones will make their way across the United States and Canada.
The tour arrives June 27 at Soldier Field.
Other stops on the 16-date trek include New Orleans, Las Vegas, Seattle, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Denver, Los Angeles and Vancouver, British Columbia, as well as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on May 2.
Fans can expect to hear the Stones’ most famous hits as well as new songs from “Hackney Diamonds”. The project’s first single, “Angry,” is nominated for a 2024 Grammy Award for Best Rock Song.
The Stones last performed in the United States in 2021 for their No Filter tour, marking the first time the band has toured without drummer Charlie Watts since 1963. Watts, the self-effacing and adamant Rolling Stones drummer who helped anchor one of rock’s greatest rhythm sections, died in August 2021. He was 80.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on December 1st ticketmaster.com.
