The Rolling Stones may have celebrated their 50th anniversary this year, but the group isn’t slowing down. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ron Wood are set to tour Asia and Australia next year for a special tour called ‘14 on Fire.’
The Stones announced that they would be visiting Australia last month when they confirmed a date to open the Adelaide Oval on March 22. As News.co.au reported at the time, Jagger appeared in a video announcing that it will be their first trip to Adelaide in 20 years.
“Hi everyone down in Adelaide," Richards added in the video. "It's been a while since we were in your back yard … see you on March 22 when we'll take over your new stadium and make it our own, look forward to it."
Since then, the date has sold out, but Australian fans shouldn’t worry. The group has scheduled more dates Down Under, as well as a date in Auckland, New Zealand. News.co.au noted today that there will be no second dates added at any location, making each show even more important.
Before they even head to Australia, they will play dates in Abu Dhabi, Tokyo and Macau. Tickets for the dates in Tokyo are already on sale at their website.
The Stones did a similar limited tour of North America earlier this year, playing in cities like Los Angeles, Toronto, Boston and Chicago.
