UPDATE: The Rolling Stones tour has been postponed, after news that legendary lead singer Mick Jagger needs "medical treatment." Jagger was advised not to go on tour, however, doctors reportedly say that the frontman "is expected to make a complete recovery."

The singer apologized to fans and the band promises the tour will be rescheduled. 


After some teasing, Rolling Stones fans will get plenty of satisfaction, and will paint the town black, when the world's most famous septuagenarians come to NRG Stadium on April 28, 2019.

The legendary U.K. rock act, one of the biggest bands of all time, will bring their critically acclaimed and commercially successful No Filter world tour to North America for 13 shows, the only Texas appearance in the Bayou City.

The tour hit several stadiums across Europe and the U.K. earlier this year to rave reviews. (There were no holograms involved — these men are very much alive and still performing at a high level.) This is the first time the Stones will play Houston in over a decade. No doubt this show will sell out quick.

Comprised of lead singer Mick Jagger, lead guitarist Keith Richards, drummer Charlie Watts, and rhythm guitarist Ronnie Wood, the Rolling Stones are responsible for some of the most memorable songs in the annals of music and the biggest hits of the '60s, '70s, and '80s, with healthy output in the decades following, including "Gimme Shelter," "Sympathy for the Devil," "Street Fighting Man," "Start Me Up," "Wild Horses," "Brown Sugar," and many, many more.

A statement released by the band stated the setlist will cover many of their heralded chart-topping hits.
