Following the release of their new album “Hackney Diamonds,” the Rolling Stones announced Tuesday that they will embark on a 16-city stadium tour in 2024, including a stop at Gillette Stadium on Thursday, May 30.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood will kick off their stadium tour on April 28 at NRG Stadium in Houston and conclude on July 17 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
“Hackney Diamonds” is the band’s first studio album of new material since 2005’s “A Bigger Bang,” and their first since the death of the band’s original drummer, Charlie Watts, in 2021. For their new album, which was released on October 20, the Rolling Stones recorded with drummer Steve Jordan, who, according to Jagger, was Watts’ personal choice to replace him in the group.
As part of the release of “Hackney Diamonds,” the band performed a surprise album release show at Racket NYC on October 19. The band was joined on stage by Lady Gaga, who appears on the album’s song “Sweet Sounds of Heaven.” Other songs on the new album include “Bite My Head Off” (featuring Paul McCartney) and “Angry,” which recently earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song.
The Rolling Stones’ May 30 concert at Gillette Stadium will mark the band’s sixth time playing at the Foxborough venue, though only the fifth time for the general public. The band played their first set after Watts’ death at a private party for Patriots owner Robert Kraft in September 2021. Before that, the band played to a crowd at Gillette in 2019, 2016, 2006 and 2002.
Tickets for the Rolling Stones concert at Gillette Stadium will go on sale on December 1 at 10 a.m. through the band’s website.
