The Rolling Stones Hit the Road Again in their 80s

The Rolling Stones to Embark on North American Tour in Their 80s

Legendary rockers The Rolling Stones have announced their plans for a North American tour, defying their age and proving that they are still at the top of their game. The announcement comes on the heels of their release of “Hackney Diamonds”, their first studio album in 18 years.

The tour will see the British band visit 16 cities, starting in Houston on April 28 and ending in Santa Clara on July 17. “Hackney Diamonds” features collaborations with megastars Elton John, Lady Gaga, and even their old rival, Paul McCartney.

The release of the album comes after Mick Jagger celebrated his 80th birthday, with Keith Richards reaching the same milestone in December. Reviews of the new album have been mostly positive, with The Telegraph describing it as “crisp and thrilling” and Uncut stating that the band has “come out fighting” since the death of drummer Charlie Watts in 2021.

Despite some less forgiving reviews, the band remains incredibly popular worldwide, with “Hackney Diamonds” topping the charts in a dozen countries, according to publisher BMG.

The Rolling Stones’ decision to embark on a tour and release a new album in their 80s cements their status as iconic rock legends who are still very much in demand.
