The Arena Guy stopped by the FOX 28 Good Day Columbus set this morning to announce the world’s greatest rock band, The Rolling Stones, will perform at iconic Ohio Stadium, Saturday, May 30. Tickets go on sale Monday, April 13.
The Stones will be the first act to perform at The Shoe in 12 years. The Summer Sanitarium Tour, featuring Metallica with Limp Bizkit, Mudvayne, the Deftones and Linken Park was the last stadium show in 2003. In what will be a fantastic summer for shows at Ohio Stadium, The Stones will play May 30, followed by the two-day Buckeye Country Superfest with Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney and six others June 20-21 and One Direction on August 18.
Recent renovations at Ohio Stadium were done with presenting other events in addition to Buckeye Football and Commencement in mind.
Columbus will be the second date on the Stones’ “Zip Code” tour, preceded only by San Diego. It is a rare and limited U.S. tour with only 15 dates scheduled.
This is possibly the last opportunity for fans to see the Rolling Stones in Columbus. Their previous stops in the Capital City included Nationwide Arena (2005), the Schottenstein Center (1999) and Ohio Stadium (1997).
The Stones will be re-releasing their classic “Sticky Fingers” album this year, and many fans are speculating they may perform the album as part of their set list for this tour, but nothing has been confirmed. “Brown Sugar” was one of several hits off that album.
Tickets for the Rolling Stones will go on sale Monday, April 13 at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster outlets and at the Schottenstein Center Box Office.
