The Rolling Stones are heading back on tour in September, after plans for their No Filter Tour were put on hold last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are thrilled to be able to announce the rescheduled dates for the Rolling Stones 2020 US tour, which will now go ahead this fall!” the band wrote in a statement posted to their website on Thursday.

“We want to thank you all for your patience during this very difficult and unprecedented time,” the legendary group added.


The tour is scheduled to kick off on Sept. 26 in St. Louis, and run through Nov. 20. The band will perform in Charlotte, N.C.; Pittsburgh; Nashville, Tenn.; New Orleans; Los Angeles; Minneapolis; Tampa, Fla.; Dallas; Las Vegas; Atlanta; and Detroit, before closing off the tour in Austin, Texas.

The band announced in March 2020 that it was postponing its No Filter Tour, scheduled to begin on May 8, as the coronavirus was beginning to spread rapidly throughout the U.S.

The group on Thursday said it would honor previously purchased tickets for the rescheduled dates. It did note, however, that previously planned shows in Vancouver; Louisville, Ky.; Cleveland; and Buffalo, N.Y., were not able to be rescheduled. The band said ticket holders for those shows will be contacted by Ticketmaster with more information.

There are also new dates on the tour schedule, including stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. According to The Associated Press, that will be the band’s first time playing at that venue.

“Looking forward to seeing you all there. Can’t wait !” Mick Jagger, the band’s frontman, wrote in a tweet.

“I can’t wait to finally get back on the road with the @RollingStones this Fall! See you very soon USA” band member Ronnie Wood wrote on Twitter.

Concerts are starting to resume throughout the U.S. as the country’s COVID-19 recovery effort picks up, especially its vaccination push.

Last month, Madison Square Garden announced that it was reopening at 100 percent capacity with a Foo Fighters concert. Those attending were required to show proof of vaccination. 

The band’s return to the stage, however, hit a roadblock last week when the group announced that it was postponing a concert set for July 17 because someone “within the Foo Fighters organization” tested positive for COVID-19.
