Rolling Stones Tour
After weeks of rumors, the Rolling Stones at last unveiled a full slate of 2015 North American tour dates on March 31. As expected, the venture will send the legendary band to numerous outdoor stadiums, with appearances at Summerfest, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Festival d’ete de Quebec mixed in as well. The tour was plotted in conjunction with the May 26 reissue of the Rolling Stones’ iconic 1971 album, Sticky Fingers, which features tracks like “Wild Horses,” Brown Sugar,” and “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking,” among other staples.
The 2015 Zip Code Tour will follow in the footsteps of the band’s 2005-07 A Bigger Bang Tour, which marked the last traditional stadium tour for the Rolling Stones, though it also featured a handful of indoor arenas as well. Meanwhile, the most recent North American Rolling Stones tour was in 2012-13 in support of the band’s 50th anniversary. The 50 & Counting Tour was held solely at indoor arenas in major markets, which perhaps makes this time around even more exciting for Rolling Stones fans in or near cities previously left off recent ventures.
First up for the Zip Code Tour will be a show at PETCO Park in San Diego on May 24, which notably hosted the Rolling Stones back in 2005 for its first-ever concert. From there, Mick Jagger and Co. will head east for a May 30 show at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, which will be their first at the venue since 1997. Much of the rest of the Rolling Stones tour schedule follows a similar pattern, with dates either ending a long hiatus in the city or venue, or in some cases, marking the debut.
Among the venues set to host the Rolling Stones for the first time ever are TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis (June 3), AT&T Stadium in Arlington (June 6), LP Field in Nashville (June 17), and Heinz Field in Pittsburgh (June 20).
Though advertised as Summerfest, the Rolling Stones’ June 23 concert in Milwaukee, the first in a decade, will actually take place the day before the festival begins, and will serve as kick-off for the popular two-week long event. Also noteworthy is the band’s July 4 show at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which will not only bring the band back to Indy for the first time since 1994, but also will mark the first time a concert will take place at the venue on a non-race weekend.
