NEW YORK — The Rolling Stones are headed back to the United States for their first tour since 1994.
The rock band fronted by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards is expected to come to New York within two weeks to announce a September start for their next U.S. tour.
The tour is expected to start in Chicago and include at least one New York-area date, possibly at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. It will coincide with Virgin Records’ release of the band’s latest album, which is not yet titled.
The tour, mostly in outdoor venues, is expected to continue in the U.S. through the end of the year, then head for other parts of the world.
The Stones last toured the U.S. in 1994, in connection with their “Voodoo Lounge” album. That series of stadium shows netted the band an estimated $119 million.
