Rolling Stones to perform Nashville show in June

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Rolling Stones will be performing at LP Field in downtown Nashville on June 17.

Mayor Karl Dean made the official announcement Tuesday morning at the stadium. The stop will be part of the band’s 15-city North American Stadium “Zip Code Tour.”

The first stop will be in San Diego on May 24. The tour will be the first time the legendary rock band has played in North American stadiums since their “A Bigger Bang Tour” in 2007.

Their performances will be full of classic Stones hits such as “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll.”

Tickets for the show go on sale Monday, April 13. Titans season ticket holders will have an opportunity to purchase tickets during a pre-sale.

The concert was supposed to be announced earlier this month, but the announcement of the national tour was postponed.

An issue with the nationwide promoter’s ticketing is being blamed for the delay.

The Stones last played Nashville at the then-Gaylord Entertainment Center in November 2002.
