Rolling Stones Announce Special Club Show for Tonight
The Rolling Stones have announced a special "Los Angeles club show" tonight as a warm-up for their Zip Code Tour, which kicks off on May 24 in San Diego.
Tickets will be available only through the band's website, RollingStones.com. In a Facebook post, the Stones promised to play "every song from Sticky Fingers and more."
The location of the show, however, is still under wraps. But local scuttlebutt points to the Fonda Theatre. LA Weekly reports that "the band previously scheduled at the Fonda on May 20, Shakey Graves, abruptly moved their show to the Belasco Theater due to 'logistics at Fonda Theatre.'" The Stones' most recent surprise L.A. show, back in 2013, was at the Echoplex.
The group's announcement of the gig, which you can see above, includes a Los Angeles zip code as well as the hash tag #StickyFingers. There's a two-ticket limit, and they're being sold on a first-come, first-served basis. In effort to cut down on scalping, tickets are being issued to only the original purchaser plus one guest, and both persons must show a photo ID to receive admission.
The Stones' upcoming summer tour marks their first extended North American run since shows in support of A Bigger Bang a decade ago. An expanded reissue of their classic 1971 album Sticky Fingers is due on June 9, and features extra studio outtakes and live performances. They'll play more than a dozen dates through July 15, when the tour winds down in Quebec.
