The show at Lincoln Financial Field will mark the band’s first Philly concert since 2019, and their first in the City of Brotherly Love since original drummer Charlie Watts died in 2021.

Last month, the Rolling Stones released “Hackney Diamonds,” their first album of original material in 18 years.

Tuesday, the legendary English band announced a North American tour behind the album, which will bring them to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on June 11.

The show will mark the band’s first Philly show since 2019, and their first in the City of Brotherly Love since original drummer Charlie Watts died in 2021.

The 16-date tour opens on April 28 in Houston and concludes in Santa Clara, California, on July 17.

The Stones first played Philly on May 2, 1965 at the old Convention Hall near the Penn campus. In total, they have played 27 shows in Philadelphia since then, according to setlist.fm.

Tickets for all shows go on sale Dec. 1.
