The Rolling Stones are returning to Vegas next spring.
Riding high on their latest release, “Hackney Diamonds,” the band is set to play at Allegiant Stadium on May 11. Tickets will go on sale on Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com.
The tour is formally dubbed Rolling Stones Tour ‘24 Hackney Diamonds. The series is the rare, if not first, major rock tour sponsored by AARP. Mick Jagger (80), Keith Richards (79) and Ronnie Wood (76) are all in that organization’s wheelhouse — the organization actually services those over 50. A presale for AARP members opens Nov. 29.

“Start Me Up,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “Satisfaction” are confirmed for the upcoming tour’s set list. The band also has earned a Best Rock Song Grammy nomination for “Angry,” the first single from the new album.
Lady Gaga sings on “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” from the new album, which she performed during the official launch party in October at Racket NYC in New York. Gaga could conceivably be back at Dolby Live by next spring, with “Jazz + Piano,” when the Stones tour reaches Vegas.
