In a spectacular announcement that has rocked the music world, The Rolling Stones have confirmed their much-anticipated 2024 North American tour. This grand event will include a landmark performance at Inglewood's SoFi Stadium in July, promising a night of unforgettable music and showmanship.

local time for each venue. This 2024 tour is particularly noteworthy as it marks The Rolling Stones' triumphant return to the States since their iconic, albeit COVID-delayed, No Filter tour in 2021.
SoFi Stadium Spectacle
Los Angeles will be electrified on July 10 as the "Gimme Shelter" hitmakers take the stage at SoFi Stadium for a one-night-only spectacle.
Additionally, the tour will grace stages in Glendale, Arizona, on May 7, Las Vegas on May 11, and at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on July 17.
Legends Live Onstage
Fans are buzzing with excitement at the prospect of witnessing Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood, the enduring faces of rock 'n' roll, perform live.
Their energy and dynamism have not dimmed in the six decades since the band's inception. Adding to the lineup, drummer Steve Jordan, who admirably stepped in for the band's longtime drummer Charlie Watts during his illness and after his passing in August 2021, will now be a permanent fixture both in the studio and on tour.
Hackney Diamonds Triumph
The Stones' latest Grammy-nominated album, "Hackney Diamonds," is a powerhouse of originality, marking the band's first release of entirely new material since 2005's "A Bigger Bang." It also stands as the first album following the passing of Watts.
Critics have praised the album, with Times music critic Mikael Wood noting, "The songs blend the same ingredients the Stones have been using since the beginning — blues, rock, soul, country, gospel — but they’re tighter and punchier than on any of the band’s previous late-era LPs." Wood further adds, "Flinty, unpredictable, endlessly splintering: Even after half a century, nobody has come close to replicating the weave of sound Richards and Wood can still get in a song like the surging 'Whole Wide World' or 'Driving Me Too Hard,' which echoes the cascading effect of 'Tumbling Dice.' Jordan's role as the group’s timekeeper adds a steady, human pulse beneath it all."
