The Rolling Stones Are Coming To Orlando
It appears that the rumors were true. In a press conference this morning, Mayor Buddy Dyer announced what we all hoped to be true and not just a cruel ruse. Prepare yourselves for another British invasion because the ROLLING STONES are coming to Orlando!!
“Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m Mayor Buddy Dyer. It’s my pleasure to announce that come June 12th this stadium will play host to a rock group so legendary, so accomplished, and so consistently popular over the last 50 years that they could easily make a grown man cry. The Rolling Stones are coming to Orlando.”
After 18 years the Rolling Stones will grace the stage of the Citrus Bowl for the 3rd time. Their first Orlando concert was in 1981 when the Citrus Bowl was just a Tangerine. Orlando is one of only 15 stops on the North American ZIP CODE tour. The tour will also coincide with the Rolling Stones re-release of “Sticky Fingers” on May 26th by Universal Music.
“We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America! I can’t wait to get back on the stage.” Keith Richards.
Orlando was chosen over many other possible cities because Mick Jagger and the Stones wanted to play special places and per Executive Director Of Orlando Venues Alan Johnson stated that the people, the NEW Citrus Bowl, and the City of Orlando is just that.
“We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer! We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs.” Mick Jagger
