 "We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer!  We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs." - Mick Jagger

 "We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America!  I can't wait to get back on the stage!" - Keith Richards

 The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 ON FIRE tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as "Gimme Shelter", "Paint It Black", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Tumbling Dice" and "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll", as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalog.

 The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007's "A Bigger Bang Tour."

 The stage design includes a thrust that extends deep into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their fans. Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones' set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones' show.

 AEG Live's Concerts West is the promoter of The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour.

The tour will also coincide with the Rolling Stones re-release of Sticky Fingers on May 26 by Universal Music. Sticky Fingers, one of the most revered albums from the Rolling Stones, is set to enthrall a new generation of fans in 2015. The 1971 classic features timeless tracks such as 'Brown Sugar,' 'Wild Horses,' 'Bitch' and 'Dead Flowers'. Sticky Fingers 2015, with its iconic zip cover, will be unveiled in a variety of formats. The deluxe editions include a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones studio outtakes from the Sticky Fingers sessions and stunning live performances from that time. These sought after tracks have never been available until this release.

Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller, Sticky Fingers was released just before the Stones became tax exiles in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most ground breaking design in rock history, with its famous working zip on the front cover and artwork by Andy Warhol.
