Keith Richards On Rolling Stones U.S. Tour: "Feels Like We're Coming Home"
The three-time GRAMMY-winning British classic-rock band the Rolling Stones are adding U.S. dates to their current No Filter Tour and they are just as excited as their fans to be playing American soil again.
"It's great to be playing back in America," Keith Richards said in a tweet. "Feels like we're coming home."
The U.S. leg will begin in Florida in April, pass through Texas and Arizona, then head to Pasadena, Calif. in May, followed by a few other cities, eventually ending in Chicago in June. The band's tour began in 2017 in Europe.
Mick Jagger joined in the exciting news with a video of him playing the guitar while singing, "I just found out today that we're going to the USA." The frontman continued to sing out some of the cities they'll be stopping by.
The Rolling Stones have not released a new album since their 2016 GRAMMY-winning blues cover album, Blue & Lonesome. The album won Best Traditional Blues Album at the 60th GRAMMY Awards. The band received The Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award at the 28th GRAMMY Awards in 1986. Seven of the legendary rock group's recordings have been inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame including, most recently in 2018, the classic "Paint It, Black," as well as "Honky Tonk Women" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."
Richards and Jagger have both implied that they are working on new music. Jagger released a video on Sept. 4 playing a harmonica with a caption that read, "Harmonica playing on new tunes!"
"We have some stuff down, which is very interesting," Richards told the Wall Street Journal, according to Consequence of Sound. "It's more difficult for us to write together the further apart we are, but it also has its benefits in that we come back to it from a different angle."
Pre-sale tickets can be purchased on Nov. 28. More details here.
