Watch legendary rockstars play at Allegiant Stadium

Build it and the Stones will come.
After a six-year drought and a pandemic that forced the cancelation of their “No Filter” tour dates in 2020, Las Vegas will welcome The Rolling Stones at Allegiant Stadium on November 6. The band added the stadium date — along with new stops at the L.A.’s SoFi Stadium and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival – to the fourth leg of the tour, which kicked off in 2019 and has already grossed more than $415 million.
The addition of Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders, is a no-brainer for the band, which will celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2022. The Rolling Stones remain one of the top touring draws in the world – the “Bigger Bang” tour was the highest grossing of the 2000s and “No Filter” was the seventh-highest grossing tour of the 2010s – and the band’s lasting appeal could fill Allegiant Stadium to its 72,000-seat capacity.
The stadium has not yet hosted fans for an NFL game, but has welcomed concertgoers this summer for the likes of Illenium and Garth Brooks. Guns N’ Roses is tapped to perform at the stadium August 27
The Stones last played Vegas in 2016, selling out an October 19 date at T-Mobile Arena before the show was canceled due to singer Mick Jagger’s laryngitis. Jagger quickly recovered and the band performed three nights later at the arena.
The final leg of the “No Filter” tour is largely a stadium affair – Jagger and company will play in the homes of the NFL’s Panthers, Steelers, Titans, Rams, Vikings, Buccaneers, Falcons, Lions, and the aforementioned Raiders — and will kick off September 26 in St. Louis; wrapping November 20 in Austin. Tickets to the new shows go on sale July 30 at 10 a.m. Fans can sign up for presale notifications at the band’s website.
