The Rolling Stones are ready to get back on the road after postponing their North American tour because Mick Jagger needed medical treatment and they’ve set a date for a New Orleans stop.
The rockers announced Thursday the No Filter tour will kick off in Chicago with two shows on June 21 and 25. All the cities previously postponed are locked in and there’s a new date in New Orleans – July 14 at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
The Stones were originally set to headline the 50th annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, but had to cancel after Jagger’s medical issues.
Tickets for the New Orleans concert will go on general sale Friday May 31, at 10 a.m. The pre-sale for the Rolling Stones mailing list will run from 10am on Wednesday May 29 to 10 p.m. on Thursday May 30.
The group says in a statement the concerts will feature classic hits such as “Sympathy For The Devil” and “Paint It Black.”
The No Filter Tour was slated to start April 20 in Miami. However, doctors told the 75-year-old Jagger in late March he couldn’t go on tour.
