This is the perfect time to be a Classic Rock fan, great bands picking the year of 2015 to go out on a summer tour.  

First Rush announced, then Van Halen and now the Rolling Stones announces a 15 city tour which will make a stop at Cowboys Stadium June 6th.  Stand by, Rock 101.1 has something up its sleeve!

Ladies and gentlemen...The Rolling Stones are back!  The band has announced that they will kick off their new 15-city North American stadium, ZIP CODE tour, in San Diego on May 24 at Petco Park.  The band will visit AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas on June 6, 2015. The tour will also make stops in Columbus, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Detroit and Buffalo before wrapping in Quebec on July 15 at Le Festival D’Été de Québec.

Tickets and VIP packages for Dallas, Texas will go on sale Monday, April 13 at 10am local time.  For ticketing information please visit rollingstones.com.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, April 8 at 10am local through Sunday, April 12 at 10pm local for select markets.

“We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer!  We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs.” - Mick Jagger

"We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America!  I can't wait to get back on the stage!” - Keith Richards

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 ON FIRE tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll”, as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalog.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007’s “A Bigger Bang Tour.”

The stage design for the stadium shows includes a thrust that extends deep into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their fans.  Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.

The tour will also coincide with the Rolling Stones re-release of Sticky Fingers on May 26 by Universal Music. Sticky Fingers, one of the most revered albums from the Rolling Stones, is set to enthrall a new generation of fans in 2015. The 1971 classic features timeless tracks such as ‘Brown Sugar,’ ‘Wild Horses,’ ‘Bitch’ and ‘Dead Flowers’.  Sticky Fingers 2015, with its iconic zip cover, will be unveiled in a variety of formats. The deluxe editions include a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones studio outtakes from the Sticky Fingers sessions and stunning live performances from that time. These sought after tracks have never been available until this release.

Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller, Sticky Fingers was released just before the Stones became tax exiles in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most ground breaking design in rock history, with its famous working zip on the front cover and artwork by Andy Warhol.

So did you miss Van Halen on Jimmy Kimmel?  Then sit back and enjoy some highlights...


Do you have a Van Halen Tattoo?

They finished with Runnin' with the Devil!

But people that weren't there didn't know why DLR had the band aid on his nose.

But this video explains it all!
