The Rolling Stones have released the dates for their re-scheduled North American tour and there’s some extra good news for Canadians: the band is still playing a Canada Day show on June 29th at Burl’s Creek in Ontario. The band was initially set to conclude their North American tour in Canada, but with the rescheduling, they’ll now play their third date here as part of at the “Canada Rocks with The Rolling Stones” show.
The Stones will be joined by The Glorious Sons and The Beaches for the Canada Day date.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood initially announced the No Filter tour and the Canada Day weekend show back in February but had to postpone dates indefinitely when doctors ordered Jagger to undergo heart surgery. The band was adamant that they’d be back on the road as soon as Mick was able and after a few months of recovery, he’s looking better than ever.
Seriously, this man is 75 years old, had heart surgery less than two months ago and is moving like a teen boy band heartthrob.

The No Filter tour is now scheduled to kick off in Chicago on June 21 and the band has even added an additional date in New Orleans just to prove they’re not slowing down. The concert—which they’ve already played across Europe—consists of their greatest hits as well as “some special gems from their celebrated history.”
We wouldn’t be surprised if the Canada Day set list included a rock n’ roll rendition of “Happy Birthday” too.
