If you’ve never had the chance to see The Rolling Stones in concert, now’s your chance! With a quick trip to Ridgedale, Missouri (just outside of Branson), you can hear iconic hits like “Paint It Black” and “Sympathy for the Devil” performed live!

 

The legendary English rock band is bringing their Hackney Diamonds Tour to the Thunder Ridge Nature Arena on Sunday, July 21. The music begins at 8 p.m.

 

Childhood friends Mick Jagger and Keith Richards formed the band in 1962 in London. Brian Jones, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman soon joined, completing the band’s original lineup. The band, whose music was initially influenced mostly by American blues artists, began to experiment with other genres of music as the ’60s progressed. The release of their 1966 album, “Aftermath,” saw immediate success and brought us the hit single “Paint It Black.”

 

After decades of massive success from hits like “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” and “Gimme Shelter,” the band released its latest album, “Hackney Diamonds,” in 2023 and features contributions from Elton John, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Bill Wyman, the band’s former bassist who left The Rolling Stones in 1993 but has returned as a guest on a variety of occasions. The band is now composed of founding members Jagger and Richards, along with guitarist Ronnie Wood, who joined the band in 1975. Sadly, Brian Jones died in 1969 at the age of 27; Charlie Watts was 80 years old when he died in 2021.

 

Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 31, on ticketmaster.com. As of Wednesday, May 29, the price of the presale tickets starts at $279.
