JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Rolling Stones are bringing their "No Filter" tour to Jacksonville next April.

“It’s a thrill when we play stadiums in the States – the energy is always amazing!” Mick Jagger said in a statement.

The Jacksonville date will be the second of 13 shows. The tour begins in Miami and ends in Chicago.

The Rolling Stones' set list will include classic Stones hits such as “Sympathy For The Devil,” “Paint It Black,” “Brown Sugar,”  “Miss You” and others from their celebrated catalog.

The Stones No Filter US Tour

The Rolling Stones are coming to America 🗽

Posted by AEG Presents on Saturday, November 17, 2018

Last year, as Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood played sold-out stadiums throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, The Times of London described the Stones as "Still the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world."

The band will perform at TIAA Bank Field on April 24. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 30. American Express card members can purchase tickets starting Nov. 28.

There were hints of the announcement Sunday at the Steelers-Jaguars game, with The Road wearing Rolling Stones T-Shirts and the iconic lips logo on display above the pool behind the north end zone.

The band last played Jacksonville on Nov. 25, 1989. Also a stadium tour, the Stones played a 2½-hour concert at the Gator Bowl.

One News4Jax employee noted that was before some people in our newsroom were born.

We found fans of the band at Yesterday and Today Records in San Marco.

"I kind of want to go to the concert (but) not many of my friends would,  so I kind of have to go with people that are a little older than me," Natalie Sakara said.

The store's owner said Stones' albums sell better than the Beatles.

"I know that Rolling Stones tickets are expensive and I know it’s because they’re highly sought after," William Brueck said. "I had a friend that went to the last time they were in Florida, which was years ago, and he said it was chaos."
