The Rolling Stones, revered as one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands, launched their latest tour at Houston’s NRG Stadium. Despite the band’s seniority — with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards both at 80, and Ronnie Wood not far behind at 76 — they displayed no signs of slowing down. Their tour, partially sponsored by AARP, commenced with a vibrant two-hour show brimming with energy and featuring beloved tunes cherished by fans.

The Stones embarked on this tour to promote their latest album, “Hackney Diamonds,” marking their first release of original music since 2005. Spanning 16 cities across the U.S. and Canada, the tour will culminate in Santa Clara, California. Throughout the concert, they intertwined songs from their new album with classic hits like “Sympathy for the Devil” and “Start Me Up.”

Despite the band’s enduring legacy, the recent passing of drummer Charlie Watts in 2021 altered their lineup. Nonetheless, the core trio of Jagger, Richards, and Wood remained steadfast, supported by additional musicians onstage. While video screens projected images throughout the show, the primary focus remained on the band and their timeless songs.

Prior to the concert, Jagger took the opportunity to tour NASA’s Johnson Space Center in suburban Houston, sharing his experience on social media. His enthusiasm and engagement at the space center, coupled with the band’s electrifying performance, underscored their continued passion for music and performance. Amid speculation about retirement, the Stones’ production director expressed confidence in the band’s enduring spirit and enthusiasm for their craft, suggesting that retirement is not on the horizon for these rock legends.
