Rolling Stones Tour Is Next
Rolling Stones Tour USA 2024 – doesn’t that bring a smile to your face?
That’s right – The Rolling Stones are expected to announce a tour shortly in support of their new album, Hackney Diamonds. It will hit the U.S. in 2024.
Ronnie Wood tells NME that they “have a lot of gigs undone because of the pandemic. So, we’re gonna go back and settle score in America. That’s what we’re gonna try and do.”
He adds that once “the band is rolling again,” they’ll expand it from there.
Asked if they would return to England’s Glastonbury festival for the first time since 2013, Wood said it would be great, but added if not the Stones, then why not his previous band, The Faces. “That’s not out of the question. I know they [Rod Stewart and Kenney Jones] want to do it.”
Woody also addressed the possibility of a Rolling Stones bio-pic. “The iron has been in the fire for many years. [There’s been] different approaches to it. I always leave that to the original members, you know. I’m not going to interfere. I let Keith and Mick talk about that.”
The Stones will release Hackney Diamonds on Friday.
Now of course we can’t wait for the new album (both tracks we’ve heard so far are amazing) – but what does it take to create an amazing song?
They touched on that topic in a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning. Mick Jagger told Anthony Mason, “You can’t be dismissive of it if you don’t get it in the first one minute, but you kind of get to know in ten minutes, I’d say.”
Keith Richards agreed, adding, “It doesn’t take long to know if something’s really there and whether it’s worth chasing.”
The Rolling Stones release their new album, Hackney Diamonds, this Friday (October 20). A full track list for the album is below, and it’s available for pre-order in a variety of formats at RollingStones.com.
So far, two tracks have been previewed: “Angry” and “Sweet Sounds of Heaven.” The latter track features Stevie Wonder and Lady Gaga. As previously reported, other guests on Hackney Diamonds include Paul McCartney, original Stones bassist Bill Wyman and Elton John. McCartney plays on “Bite My Head Off,” while Wyman and John play bass and piano, respectively, on “Live by the Sword.”
