BUFFALO, N.Y. WIVB – The chance to see living legends is fueling the buzz around the announcement that the Rolling Stones are hitting the road this summer. The band is calling this their “Zip Code” tour, and it’s sure to bring a certain amount of nostalgia through 14217.
The name refers to their “Sticky Fingers,” album, which featured an actual working zipper on the front when it came out in 1971. The band is re-releasing a deluxe version of the album in May. You can expect to hear those songs at the show.
A framed photo of Mick Jagger, who is now 71 years old, hangs outside the 97 Rock studios in South Buffalo. It was taken the last time his band played in Orchard Park. Host John “JP” Piccillo says many of his listeners probably never thought they would see them play live here again.
“It’s been 18 years, so we’re really happy that they’re coming back. It’s been said now for thirty years, this might be the last time the Rolling Stones will go on tour,” Piccillo told News 4. “They played here for the first time in 1966, during the British invasion. Have been here several times. And Buffalo has always been a Rolling Stones market. It’s really cool that the band put us on the itinerary.”
