After 61 years of unforgettable live performances, everyone has been asking the same question: Will The Rolling Stones be embarking on a world tour next year?

We now know the answer.

The Rolling Stones have officially announced a 2024 concert tour with a date at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Tuesday, June 11.

The radio pre-sale for tickets will begin at 10 am on Thursday, Nov 30, and the sale date is Friday, Dec 1 at 10 am. See details at

Over the past week, the band had shared a series of cryptic messages leading fans to guess a tour announcement was pending.

The Stone's 24th studio album, ‘Hackney Diamonds’, was their first full-length LP since 2005.

Speaking with NME around the time of the long-awaited release, guitarist Ronnie Wood talked about the reality of touring again and showing off the new songs in a live setting.

“I have complete faith. We could play the whole album, you know what I mean? But [Mick and Keith] will go, ‘Oh no Ron, that’s so ambitious’. We’re not gonna forget the back catalogue. There are certain songs, ‘Paint It, Black’ and ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’, that have got to be played.

The Rolling Stones performed live for the first time in London at a club off Oxford Street in July 1962, making 2024 their 62nd year on the road.

The last few years have been filled with highs and lows for the Stones with the passing of longtime bandmate Charlie Watts in 2021, leaving three primary members of the band, Mick Jagger, 80, Keith Richards, 79, and Ronnie Wood, 76.

The Rolling Stones made their Philadelphia debut on May 1, 1965, at Convention Hall on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania.

They have returned to the city many times over the years, playing large outdoor shows twice at JFK Stadium, and stadium shows at the Spectrum, dating back to Ron Wood's first tour with the band in 1975. The smallest venue the band ever played in the Philly area was at Upper Darby's Tower Theater in 2002.

The Stones last played in Philadelphia at the Linc during their No Filter Tour in 2019.

‘Hackney Diamonds’ is the best the Rolling Stones have sounded in decades and this summer's tour will give new generations of fans their first and possibly only chance to experience the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band live in concert.
