After a brief delay for the heart surgery of Mick Jagger, The Rolling Stones are ready to return to the road. The No Filter US Tour kicks off on June 21st in Chicago, and the band plans to hit 15 stadiums in the US and Canada.
"We just want to keep going" Keith Richards told RADIO.COM in an exclusive interview last year. "Just line us up and get us ready."
"Let's play America man, you know, haven't done that in a while. Let's see the folks" the legendary guitarist continued.
On Wednesday, The Rolling Stones announced a list of special guests that will be joining them on the No Filter US Tour. From amazing up-and-coming artists and to some of the best rock bands in the game, it's an exciting reason to get to your seat early for each of the 17 shows on the trek.
