The Rolling Stones welcomed Lady Gaga at their intimate NY gig
The Rolling Stones played an intimate gig in New York to celebrate the release of “Hackney Diamonds” and were joined by Lady Gaga.
Six decades after their first U.S. tour, the Rolling Stones are still commandeering stages.
The venerable rockers will embark on a 16-city jaunt April 28 in Houston to support their well-received new album, “Hackney Diamonds,” and plug into their extensive hits parade.
The stadium tour, sponsored by the age-appropriate AARP, will also hit cities including Las Vegas, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. The band will detour May 2 to play the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. local time Dec. 1 via ticketmaster.com.
It hasn’t been too long since the band worked stadium stages: In September 2021, they resumed their No Filter tour, which had been on a 16-month pandemic delay.

The Stones – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood – are basking in a bit of a studio revival with “Hackney Diamonds,” their first new album since 2005.
The single, “Angry,” is nominated for best rock song at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 4. (The band has three career wins.)
“Hackney Diamonds” is also the Stones’ first album since drummer Charlie Watts died in 2021.
The band premiered songs from the album at an intimate, invitation-only show of a few hundred people at the Racket NYC club in October, running through a handful of visceral new tracks and leaning into classics including “Shattered” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” with youthful vigor. Lady Gaga, who sings on the album track “Sweet Sounds of Heaven,” joined Jagger for a thunderous duet.
