Buddy Guy has received six GRAMMY® Awards, along with a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY® Award, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and was awarded the 2012 Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contribution to American culture. His latest studio album, Rhythm & Blues, debuted at #1 on the Blues Billboard chart in July 2013. Throughout his career, Buddy Guy has been a major influence on major rock titans, including Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 ON FIRE tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll”, as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalog.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007’s “A Bigger Bang Tour.”

AEG Live’s Concerts West is the promoter of The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour.
