Getting Stickier...

With more and more Rolling Stones tour information developing by the hour, we're now ready to take a real stab at an outline of the upcoming Sticky Fingers-themed shindig. Not counting a warm-up show and television appearance or two, here's our best shot at how the tour will go down [Updated 3/13-14]:

5/24 Petco Park, San Diego, CA

5/30 Ohio Stadium, Columbus, OH

6/3 TCF Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN

6/6 Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, TX 

6/10 Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville, TN

6/13 Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium, Orlando, FL

6/16 or 17 Bobby Dodd Stadium, Atlanta, GA

6/20 Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA

6/23 Marcus Amphitheater, Milwaukee, WI

6/26 or 27 Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO

6/30 or 7/1 Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, CA

7/4 Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Indianapolis, IN

7/8 Comerica Park, Detroit, MI

7/11 Ralph Wilson Stadium, Buffalo, NY

7/15? Le Festival d'été de Québec, Plains of Abraham, Québec City, QC or RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest, LeBreton Flats Park, Ottawa, ON

Expect a tour similar to the above to be announced on Thursday, March 19th. Additional special promotional events, festival appearances, and concerts filmed for television may be announced at later dates. We think these may include the following:

5/16 Saturday Night Live, New York, NY, among other television appearances

5/19-21 Club Nokia and/or Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, Los Angeles, CA (2 filmed shows)

6/18 Live Earth Festival, MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey?

Mid-late July? - Forest Hills Stadium, New York, NY (3 shows)?

Labor Day Weekend - Bumbershoot Festival, Seattle, WA?

And one more word on the upcoming Grateful Dead shows... 

On the heels of a sellout of their Dear Jerry concert in Maryland, following the sellout of the big Soldier Field stand in Chicago, we would not be surprised to see announcements of additional concerts featuring three or four of the Dead's original members in coming days. The above-mentioned Levi's Stadium is one possible Bay Area site, perhaps in late June [right around the time of the Stones shows, it seems]. Announcements of New York and Virginia appearances may follow. [Updated 3/13: Billboard is getting in on the act - We're hearing that there will be at least two shows in Silicon Valley the last weekend of June, and that they will feature at least three members of the Dead, at least one member of Phish, and John Mayer.]
