With their first tour passing through North America since their 2007 tour, Zip Code tour tickets are on sale after the Stones announced tour dates earlier this month. In reference to the 1971 Sticky Fingers album with the Warhol design and iconic zipper design, the tour will take place kicking off in Petco Park in May, which is in San Diego. Original announcements for tickets was supposed to go off on March 19, and when they didn't rumors started floating around that the band was going to cancel. With the announcement, fans are now thrilled that the tickets are available for sale to the general public.

With the tour passing through the Indianapolis Speedway, it will be the first time an event is held on a non-race weekend at the venue. This is just one of the many venues which the tour will pass through in N. America, as well as around the world. The reissue of the Sticky Finger album will be let go on the first date of the tour; therefore, the band decided to pay tribute to the album by naming the tour after it. Previously released outtakes, studio sessions, and live performances which were not included in the original album, will be released with this one. Several format releases will be available, but the original zipped cover will remain present when the album is released in the next few weeks.

Brown Sugar and Wild Horses which were on the original Sticky Fingers album which was recorded in Olympics Studios and produced by Jimmy Miller, long time confidant, have been remastered for the release. The album was released just before the Stones left the UK for tax evasion, and played their final farewell tour in France. The Andy Warhol artwork, right alongside the zipper cover, was considered groundbreaking at the time of release. The Sticky Finger album was unlike anything ever dropped by any band. Its no wonder there is such a buzz about the re-release, and the much anticipated tour which will kick off in only a short while.

The stage design for the tour is set to have a thrust, which will extend deep down into where the audience is seated. This is going to allow for max connection and allow for the band to interact as much as possible with the audience during the tour. The special effects video screens are also meant to help with the high octane experience, which is said to be the most interactive stage design possible. It is something which the band as well as the fans are truly going to appreciate when the tour kicks off.

This tour will follow the band's 2014 One Fire tour, which went through Europe, Asia, New Zealand, and Australia. Due to the fact that L'Wren, passed away (Mick Jagger's girlfriend) many of the tour dates had to be rescheduled during this last stage of the tour. She died in March of 2014, which threw the tour dates off completely. Bobby Keys, the long time sax player for the Stones also passed away last year, which further caused the band to rearrange tour dates, and make changes to their final tour legs. Exile on Main Street, and several tracks on the Sticky Fingers album were recorded with Keys, which made him an integral part of the band's success, especially early on when they were recording music together.

In addition to the much anticipated tour dates, Keith Richards has also decided to drop his new solo album when the Sticky Fingers tour comes to a close. Although he stated the album had been completed for some time now, he was waiting for the right time to drop it; this seems to be the perfect opportunity, and will give fans of the band something to look forward to after the tour comes to a conclusion as well. Since the band has been spending much time together preparing for the tour, he was simply waiting for the right time slot to drop the new album. Although nothing is set in stone, the band has also been discussing the possibility of making a new album together once the tour comes to a close, but there are no dates in mind for when it will take place.
