Could the Rolling Stones be rolling into Buffalo? Could be.
According to the music news web site SongMango.com, the legendary rockers will be announcing a summer, 2015 stadium tour within the next week. The band is said to be touring in support of the deluxe reissue of their classic “Sticky Fingers.” The tour will find the band performing the entire album in 14 cities. One of them, according to SongMango.com, will be Buffalo. Since this is a stadium tour, that would mean Ralph Wilson Stadium would be the venue of choice.
“Reportedly – without being officially confirmed – The Stones will play Milwaukee on June 23rd and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 4th,” reads the SongMango.com piece, in part. “ Other stops are to include Red Rocks in Colorado, Buffalo, Pittsburgh and somewhere in NYC. There will be Canadian cities on the tour, which could include a festival.”
If this turns out to be true, this would be the first time the Stones played Buffalo since the 1997 “Bridges to Babylon” tour and the fifth time in their history.
