Get excited, Rolling Stones fans. Philadelphia is one of eight American cities selected to be a stop on the Rolling Stones’ 50 and Counting Tour.
The tour commemorates the band’s five decade history; from Gimme Shelter to Start Me Up to Satisfaction.
The iconic band is set to rock the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday, June 18 and Friday, June 21.
In celebration of the Rolling Stones’ all-new tour, Mayor Michael Nutter and Comcast-Spectacor dub June 17 through 21 Rolling Stones Week in Philadelphia.
Celebrating Rolling Stones Week in Philadelphia is easy; residents and local business owners are encouraged to show their fandom by decorating their homes and businesses with Rolling Stones memorabilia, attending one of the concerts or renaming menu items to something Rolling Stones-centric.
The Rolling Stones’ history with Philadelphia is extensive. They were the final band to perform in the former JFK Stadium (now the Wells Fargo Center) and performed a record-breaking three concert “trifecta” in the City of Brotherly Love in 2002.
On Tuesday, June 18, country singer Brad Paisley, is slated to open the show.
Tickets for this week’s performances are available online.
Concert attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food to donate to Philabundance.
