Now, in the midst of the trek, The Stones have added another show to their Hackney Diamonds run. The new gig will take place at the all-new Thunder Ridge Nature Arena in Ridgedale, Missouri on July 21. It will be the final and most intimate show of the tour, with a venue capacity of just 18,000. Tickets go on sale Monday, May 31 at 10am local time.

Nestled in the Ozarks about 10 miles from Branson, the Thunder Ridge Nature Arena was built by Bass Pro Shops founder and CEO, Johnny Morris.

“I really just love my home here in the Ozarks,” Morris told The Associated Press in a recent interview. “I’m happy to share it with the world.”

The list of opening acts for The Stones’ current tour is quite impressive. The group pulls from all genres, with one artist serving as The Stones’ special guest every night. Rockers Gary Clark Jr., Joe Bonamassa, The Pretty Reckless, Widespread Panic, The Linda Lindas, and The Beaches will each be performing on a date throughout the run. The trek also includes Icelandic blues rockers KALEO, who supported Greta Van Fleet on their recent global arena trek. Additionally, country chart-topper Lainey Wilson and folk crossover juggernaut Tyler Childers will also be performing.

Earlier this week, The Rolling Stones announced a 30th anniversary celebration of their hit 1994 album, Voodoo Lounge. To commemorate the milestone, The Stones are reissuing the record on limited edition red and yellow colored vinyl and with a bonus 10″ featuring single B-Sides, “I’m Gonna Drive,” “So Young,” “Jump On Top of Me,” and ‘The Storm’ – exclusive to the official Rolling Stones store. The release is due out on July 12.

Additionally, the band has revealed a new collection of Voodoo Lounge merchandise featuring vintage design t-shirts and hoodies for whether you are listening at home or seeing the band out on the road this summer. A number of limited edition bundles are also available.

Released on September 3, 1994, Voodoo Lounge marked the band’s first collaboration with their new label, Virgin Records. It was the long awaited follow-up to their 1989 hit, Steel Wheels. Anchored by the hit singles like “You Got Me Rocking,” “Love Is Strong,” “Out of Tears,” and “I Go Wild,” the record hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and took the top spot on the UK Albums Chart. 

The Stones’ North American stadium tour will see frontman Mick Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards, and guitarist Ronnie Wood perform at stadiums across the continent. Produced by AEG and Concerts West, The Hackney Diamonds Tour wraps up on July 17 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The run includes stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Orlando, Atlanta, and more.

Last October, The Rolling Stones released their acclaimed new album, Hackney Diamonds. The record hit No. 1 in 19 countries around the globe, and features the GRAMMY®-nominated single, “Angry.” After announcing their North American stadium tour last week, the band has confirmed a forthcoming expanded release of their latest studio effort.

On October 19, 2023, The Rolling Stones played a secret club show in New York City to launch the release of their new record. The invitation-only gig took place at Racket NYC (formerly Highline Ballroom). There were approximately 650 people at the show. Among those reportedly in attendance were GRAMMY® Award winners Elvis Costello and Diana Krall, Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz (The Constant GardenerThe Mummy), comedian and actor Chris Rock, actress and entrepreneur Mary-Kate Olsen, and star of the 007 franchise, actor Daniel Craig.

The band played a brief seven-song that began with “Shattered” from 1978’s Some Girls. The debuted their new album’s lead single “Angry” next. They would also play “Whole Wide World” and “Bite My Head Off” from the new record. The Stones also treated fans to performances of their classic hits “Tumbling Dice” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.”

For the encore, they played another new song, “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” for the very first time. The track, from their new album, features none other than GRAMMY® Award winners Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder. To the surprise of all in attendance, Lady Gaga joined The Stones on stage for the performance.

Their 23rd original studio effort, Hackney Diamonds will also be The Rolling Stones’ first album without founding drummer Charlie Watts who passed away at 80 in August of 2021. During a live-streaming event hosted by The Tonight Show‘s Jimmy Fallon, the band revealed that two tracks on the album – “Mess It Up” and “Live by the Sword” – were recorded in 2019 with Watts on drums.

“Ever since Charlie’s gone, it’s different,” guitarist Keith Richards said during the event. “He’s ‘Number Four.’”
