The Rolling Stones concert chronology

Zip Code Tour was a concert tour by English rock band The Rolling Stones. It began on 24 May 2015 in San Diego and travelled across North America before concluding on 15 July 2015 in Quebec City, Canada.[1] The tour was announced on 31 March 2015 with tickets going on sale to the general public two weeks later.[2] The name is a reference to the jeans-related artwork for Sticky Fingers, which received a special re-release in 2015,[3] and had its entire track list played during the Zip Code Tour.[4]

History[edit]

On 31 March 2015, The Rolling Stones announced the Zip Code tour, a new United States & Canada tour subtitled Tour of North America 2015.[2] The tour featured stadium concerts after extensive usage of said venues during the 14 On Fire European tour. Mick Jagger has declared that the band would extend the tour to South America "but it's kind of difficult to put together."[5] Given the tour started the same year the Sticky Fingers album received a deluxe re-release, "Zip Code" is a reference to how that album's cover features the crotch of a man wearing jeans, which in the original vinyl release had a working zipper.[3]

On 20 May 2015, The Rolling Stones performed a surprise L.A. concert at The Fonda Theatre (an intimate 1,300-person-capacity venue) in Hollywood, California, playing sixteen songs in total, including the entire ten-song track list of Sticky Fingers.[4][6][7]

On 27 May 2015, The Rolling Stones performed a private show at Belly Up Tavern, Solana Beach, California, playing a shorter set of fifteen songs.[8][9]
