The Rolling Stones are stopping at the Linc on their world tour next year
This is the first time the Stones have played Philly in five years
The Rolling Stones announced today they will perform at Lincoln Financial on June 4, 2019 -- their first Philly concert since their 50 & Counting tour in 2013, when the long-running band played the Wells Fargo Center for a two night stand.
Their No Filter tour hits stadiums in 13 cities across the country, including East Rutherford, N.J. and Chicago, beginning in April and follows the band’s performances in the U.K. and Europe this past year. The set list includes classic Stones hits like “Sympathy tor the Devil,” “Brown Sugar” and “Miss You.” As Dan DeLuca wrote for the 2013 tour stop, “what Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and company are in the business of is mounting massive greatest-hits tours … Unlike chronological peers such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and David Bowie, the Stones — who performed on a stage in the shape of a giant pair of lips, with Jagger prancing busily along the outer reaches of the “Tongue Pit,” while the other band members mostly huddled around the still masterfully minimalist drummer Charlie Watts — barely pay lip service to the idea that new songs should be a part of their working repertoire."
Tickets for the concert go on sale on Friday, Nov. 30 at 10 a.m. For ticketing information, visit rollingstones.com.
