There has been much speculation the last few months as to when the Rolling Stones are going to announce a new US tour. Fans can rejoice as they announced a summer tour on back March 31. If the announcement was done on April 1, then things may have been very different.
The Rolling Stones “Zip Code” Tour will begin in San Diego and progress through 15 cities starting on May 14. This tour hits some of the largest venues in the country. One of the largest venues is Indianapolis Motor Speedway. There will be a stage extension for them to interact with fans during every show. Another bonus for fans is video screens and special effects will be in use at shows to enhance the concertgoer experience.
The Rolling Stones have not been on tour in the United States since their “50 and Counting” tour. The ticket prices at the time sold for about $463. The members of the band are just as excited as fans to be performing in the United States again and playing all their favorite songs.
One interesting development is the band is considering playing the entirety of “Sticky Fingers.” This includes playing the song “You Gotta Move” which they haven’t performed since 1976. A few of of their songs have not been played since the 90s. The only concern Mick Jagger has about the performance of Sticky Fingers is there are a few songs that are slow. Performing too many slow songs might be a problem in stadiums.
Sticky Fingers was first released in 1971 and is being re-released on May 25th of this year. Fans will have the option to choose from ten configurations of the album. A deluxe boxed set and a remastered download will be available. The deluxe version will contain a lot of goodies which ranges from a vinyl record that contains “Wild Horses” and “Brown Sugar” to a hardback book that is 120 pages.
