As expected, finally, the rumors became official this morning.
The Rolling Stones are coming to the AT&T Stadium June 6, the fourth stop on the 15-city Zip Code tour. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. April 13 -- though American Express card-holders van virtually queue up April 8. (Don't try to visit the band's website for info; its servers are overwhelmed at the moment. Besides, there's no rush.)
Per Ticketmaster, ticket prices run the gamut: from $65 (or $78.29 with fees and taxes) to $395 (a whopping $419.84 with the add-ons).
No word on whether the band will play Sticky Fingers in its entirety -- an early rumor. But the tour does coincide with the record's re-release on May 26.
"We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer," Mick Jagger said in a prepared statement. "We are looking forward to being back onstage and playing your favorite songs."
"We love being out on the road, and it is great to come back to North America," says Keith Richards, no doubt via translator. "I can't wait to get back on the stage."
This will mark the Stones' first visit to North Texas since November 2005, when the band played the American Airlines Center. I'd be more satisfied with a Cotton Bowl return myself. Or Moody Coliseum.
That would have been cool too. And cheaper.
