Legendary English rock band, The Rolling Stones, have announced that their No Filter tour is coming to the United States in 2019. This tour announcement is accompanied by a wonderful Twitter video featuring legendary frontman Mick Jagger playing his signature brand of crunchy guitar while singing about all of the cities in which the tour will stop. “Well I just found out today,” the 75-year-old vocalist croons, “that we’re coming to the USA.” Leave it to one of the most well-recognized singers of all-time to turn a simple tour announcement into a new hit single!
The 13-date stadium tour is set to begin on April 20th at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, FL and continue through June 21st, finally reaching its close at Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears. This will be the band’s first US tour in four years since the Zip Code tour in 2015. While they continued to play a handful of one-off US shows in the year following, the band has been touring solely across Europe since 2017.
“It’s a thrill when we play stadiums in the states,” said Jagger in a statement issued to Rolling Stone magazine.
“It’s a great crowd,” added longtime guitar player, Keith Richards.
Since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1964, The Rolling Stones have grown into one of, if not the most successful rock bands of all time. With a decades-long career that spans 30 studio albums, 26 live albums, three Grammy awards, and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 1989, The Rolling Stones have every right to rest on their laurels, and yet, they show no signs of ever slowing down.
While the tour will certainly feature many hit singles such as “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” from 1965’s Out of Our Heads and “Miss You” off of their 1978 album, Some Girls, the band has shown no hesitation to digging into countless deeper tracks from the entirety of the illustrious career.
Tickets for the No Filter tour go on sale November 30, so grab yourself a Rolling Stones t-shirt, brush up on your English accent, and get ready to experience one of the longest running, most influential rock bands of all time.
