The home of the Kansas City Chiefs will be hosting the Rolling Stones at Arrowhead Stadium on June 27. The Chiefs released a press release on this. Since some of you might be interested in this, I copied the press release below.

Ladies and gentlemen...The Rolling Stones are back!  The band has announced that they will kick off their new 15-city North American stadium, ZIP CODE Tour, in San Diego on May 24 at Petco Park.  The band will visit Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on Saturday, June 27. The tour will make stops in Columbus, Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Detroit and Buffalo before wrapping in Quebec on July 15 at Le Festival D'Été de Québec.

Tickets and VIP packages for the Kansas City show will go on sale to the general public on Monday, April 13 at 10 a.m. CT.  For ticketing information please visit rollingstones.com.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, April 8 at 10 a.m. CT throughSunday, April 12 at 10 p.m. CT for select markets. Jackson County taxpayers (10 a.m.), Chiefs Season Ticket Members (noon), partners (noon), suite holders (noon) and database subscribers (1 p.m.) will also have presale opportunities that begin on Friday, April 10.

This marks the third trip to iconic Arrowhead Stadium for The Rolling Stones. The June 27 show coincides with the 40th anniversary of the group's debut at the venue, which was June 6, 1975, and will be the band's first concert at Arrowhead since October 1989.

The 10th of 15 stops on the tour, Kansas City is the only concert in the six-state region of Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma and Arkansas. The show will be one of three concerts for Arrowhead Stadium in 2015, and marks the seventh concert for the venue since 2011.

"We are thrilled to welcome The Rolling Stones back to Arrowhead for the first time in 26 years," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. "The Stones are one of the most popular touring groups of all time, which makes this a great opportunity for Chiefs Kingdom to experience their legendary music inside iconic Arrowhead Stadium."

"We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer!  We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs." - Mick Jagger

"We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America!  I can't wait to get back on the stage!" - Keith Richards

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 ON FIRE tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as "Gimme Shelter", "Paint It Black", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Tumbling Dice" and "It's Only Rock ‘N' Roll", as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalog.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE Tour will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007's "A Bigger Bang Tour."

The stage design for the stadium shows includes a thrust that extends deep into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their fans.  Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones' set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones' show.

AEG Live's Concerts West is the promoter of The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE Tour.

The tour will also coincide with The Rolling Stones re-release of Sticky Fingers on May 26 by Universal Music. Sticky Fingers, one of the most revered albums from The Rolling Stones, is set to enthrall a new generation of fans in 2015. The 1971 classic features timeless tracks such as ‘Brown Sugar,' ‘Wild Horses,' and ‘Dead Flowers'.  Sticky Fingers 2015, with its iconic zip cover, will be unveiled in a variety of formats. The deluxe editions include a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones studio outtakes from the Sticky Fingers sessions and stunning live performances from that time. These sought after tracks have never been available until this release.

Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller, Sticky Fingerswas released just before the Stones became tax exiles in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most ground breaking design in rock history, with its famous working zip on the front cover and artwork by Andy Warhol.
