Iconic rock band The Rolling Stones announced a 2024 North American tour on Tuesday, but it may end with key details.
The Rolling Stones’ Hackney Diamond Tour is sponsored by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), an organization “dedicated to helping Americans 50 and older make lifestyle choices as they age.”
The Rolling Stones have been eligible for AARP for decades now that Mick Jagger is 80, Keith Richards 79, Ronnie Woods 76. Tour announcements are posted on the AARP website.
The Rolling Stones released a new album last month, Hackney Diamonds, the iconic band’s first studio album since 2005’s A Bigger Bang. The album features collaborations with famous artists such as Paul McCartney, Elton John and Lady Gaga.
This is for the stones first album since the death of their original drummer Charlie Watts in 2021.
The Rolling Stones will perform in 16 cities across the United States and Canada, and AARP members will have access to special pre-sales. The tour will begin in Houston next April and end in Santa Clara, California in July.
Jagger recently appeared on ” wall street journal magazineand admitted in the interview that he had “old age” problems, and said that he had made “mistakes” during his more than six years as the lead singer and co-founder of the Rolling Stones.
Last year, the Rolling Stones celebrated their 60th anniversary.
In a recent interview with the BBC, Richards explained that after more than 60 years in the band, he was changing the way he played guitar despite suffering from arthritis. He noticed a difference in his playing, but it didn’t hurt him.
“The funny thing is, I have no doubt it does, but I don’t have any pain, which is a benign version of that,” Richards explained. “I think if I slowed down a little bit, it might be more due to age.”
Richards continued, “And, I find it interesting that when I think, ‘I can’t do this anymore,’ the guitar will tell me there’s another way. Some fingers will move a space, and then a whole new door opens opened.”
