The Rolling Stones appear at State Farm Stadium in Glendale May 7. Tickets go on sale Nov. 30.

The Rolling Stones will be touring again with a stop at State Farm Stadium in Glendale May 7, 2019.
The band, which has been together for 56 years, announced a 13-show tour, called No Filter, which kicks off April 20 in Miami. The band will perform in Jacksonville and Houston before making the stop in Glendale.
The tour will mark the band’s first tour of the U.S. since 2015’s Zip Code tour, except for one-off shows such as the Desert Trip Festival in Indio, Calif., two Las Vegas arena gigs and two private shows in 2016. In the past two years, they have only toured in Europe.
“It is a thrill when we play stadiums in the United States,” lead singer Mick Jagger said in a statement. “The energy is always amazing and the people are fun to play in front of.”
The band last released a blues cover record, Blue and Lonesome, in 2016 and has reportedly been recording new material for a possible new album next year.
The band members, Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards, bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts, have an average age of 77, with Watts being the oldest at 88 when the tour begins.
The Rolling Stones are known to tour around some of its biggest hits such as “Satisfaction,” Gimmie Shelter,” Sympathy for the Devil,” You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” as well as dropping in newer songs in shows that average around three hours.
The band was the third-highest grossing act worldwide in the first half of 2018, according to Pollstar. The band’s $100.8 million ticket gross from European shows put them behind only Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars among the highest grossing acts.
The show in Glendale will be the first time the band played in the Valley since 2006, when it performed at University of Phoenix Stadium. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 30.
