Mick Jagger and the boys are coming to Las Vegas on November 6th as the Rolling Stones will bring their aborted 2020 “No Filter” tour to Allegiant Stadium as part of three new dates added today.
The announced resumption of the suspended 2020 tour Thursday morning and Las Vegas – and its new Allegiant Stadium venue – was added.
In addition to Las Vegas and Allegiant Stadium, the Rolling Stones also added Los Angeles and New Orleans to the tour. A pre-sale for the Rolling Stones mailing list for New Orleans, Los Angeles & Las Vegas shows will begin Monday, July 28th at Noon PT and end Friday, July 30th at 10 am PT. General Tickets for the Rolling Stones at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and the other added shows will then be available on Friday, July 30th at 10 am PT.
I’m so excited to get back on the stage again,” said Mick Jagger in a statement released as part of the announcement, “and want to thank everyone for their patience. See you soon!”
Located just off the Las Vegas Strip, Allegiant Stadium is home to the Las Vegas Raiders and is expected to be a hot concert venue moving forward. Allegiant Stadium hosted its first concert on July 3rd as electronic music act Illenium, followed by the delayed and much-anticipated July 10th show from Garth Brooks. The Brooks concert, which was beset by fans who said the audio inside the stadium was not good, was played in front of a sold-out crowd of over 65,000 fans.
Without Allegiant Stadium, Rolling Stones would skip Las Vegas
The Rolling Stones show added for Las Vegas would not have been possible without the addition of Allegiant Stadium to the market. Tours like the “No Filter” tour typically play large stadiums like Allegiant Stadiums. Before Allegiant Stadium opened in 2020, Las Vegas’ largest stadium was the delipidated Sam Boy Stadium – former home to the moribund UNLV football program. In the modern concert tour era, Sam Boyd wasn’t up to snuff, showing how the new stadium in Las Vegas can pull in massive tours like the Rolling Stones.
When the Nevada taxpayers, through the Nevada Legislature, approved the $850 million in funding – via a hotel tax – many non-football fans asked what the benefit of adding a stadium would have to the overall community and economy. A show like the Rolling Stones, and Garth Brooks, certainly will provide an answer to that question as music fans from around the world make their way to Las Vegas to see the band.
Allegiant Stadium will also host another big concert in Las Vegas come September as Axl Rose and Guns n’ Roses fill the new venue.
The Rolling Stones last album was 2005’s A Bigger Bang but fans are content to spend their hard-earned cash to reminisce with hits of the past from a band that got its start 59 years ago in 1962.
