Will the Rolling Stones tour come back?


Dubbed "The World's Largest Rock & Roll", the Rolling Stones have excited audiences for more than half a decade.

In fact, longtime band fans were already buying tickets in anticipation of the No Filter 2019 tour when vocalist Mick Jagger was forced to cancel shows so he could address medical issues involving his heart.

Now, many people are wondering if the veteran rock band will tour again. Here is what we know so far:

UK Tour No. 1

In 1963, the Rolling Stones embarked on a package that took the band across Britain, where they played 10-minute sets in dive bars and dance houses in Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and London.

Named after Brian Jones and run by Andrew Loog Oldham, the scruffy combo was on the same account as the Everly Brothers, Mickey Most, Bo Diddley and English singer Julie Grant.

On the fifth night of the pack, local critics denounced the Stones, telling readers that the booming musical group wore "caveman hairstyles" and sang songs that could not be understood.

In response, vocalist Mick Jagger said he gave the Stones "another two years" of popularity.

First American tour

In June 1964, the Rolling Stones began their first US tour with two shows at Carnegie Hall. Then the rock band visited Omaha, San Antonio, Detroit and several other American cities before ending the tour at the Swing Auditorium in San Bernardino, California.

The band also spent time recording their first No. 1 hit, "It's All Over Now" at Chess Studios, explains ThoughtCo magazine.

Second US tour

In October 1965, the Rolling Stones began an American tour at Montreal Stadium in Canada. After impressing the crowd with songs like "Paint It Black", "Get Off My Cloud" and "(I can not get no) Satisfaction," the five-part band from coast to coast including shows in New York City, Memphis, Denver and Baltimore before ending the tour with a bang at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.

During this groundbreaking tour, the Stones appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, where they performed "Let's Spend the Night Together" with slightly reworked lyrics.

Since the successful 1965 tour, the Stones have traveled with artists as diverse as Hermans Hermits, Ike and Tina Turner Revue, Foreigner and Stevie Wonder.

The Rolling Stones also went on tour with The Eagles, Prince and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. In fact, the fans are so accustomed to the regular Rolling Stones shows that it was fully expected that the 2019 tour would go smoothly. Unfortunately, this did not happen.

2019 Tour canceled

Despite the huge sales of tickets, the Stones announced the delay of the No Filter US tour until further notice. Scheduled to start at the Hard Rock Auditorium in Miami on April 20, the show is likely to continue, but not at the moment. In a statement released by the Miami Herald, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger said he was "extremely disappointed" but is eager to resume the rock scene as fast as possible.

As we go to the press, the word is that Jagger is expected to fully recover from the medical condition that prevented the start of the No Filter tour. He will be having surgery to replace a heart valve and have a stent inserted. West and AEG Presents, who are promoting the 2019 tour, advise ticket holders to submit their tix, which will be valid when the tour is rescheduled. So, yeah, the Stones are expected to tour again as soon as Jagger's doctors give him a green light.
