Bucket List: Rolling Stones in Chicago This Summer
They've been billed as the world's greatest rock and roll band, and they're approaching their eighties; So, every time the Rolling Stones announce another tour, you never know when it will be their last. With that in mind, tickets for the Rolling Stones, at Soldier Field in Chicago on June 21st go on sale this Friday, November 30th.
Given the ages of the core members of the band - drummer Charlie Watts will be 78, Mick Jagger and Keith Richard will both be 75, and Ronnie Wood, the youngster at 71, question always remains, how much longer can they keep doing this. The past two years the tours have been limited to fourteen cities. The 2019 tour is only 13; there is no Detroit date and no other mid-western cities are scheduled either.
“It’s a thrill when we play stadiums in the States,” Mick Jagger said in a statement, “the energy is always amazing!” Adds Keith Richards: “I’ve always loved playing the states. It’s a great crowd.” -Rolling Stone Magazine
