Time Out says

Just a few weeks after postponing its North American tour so that Mick Jagger could undergo heart surgery, the Rolling Stones have announced that it's back on again. Any other aging frontman might have taken a bit more time to recuperate, but Jagger is already posting Instagram videos of himself dancing and strutting like a regular "Jumpin' Jack Flash."

The Stones will kick off their No Filter Tour with a pair of shows in Soldier Field, a venue that the band first played in 1978 on its Some Girls tour. The Chicago dates were originally slated to cap off the tour—now they'll serve as a taste of what the British quartet has in store for the rest of the country. Naturally, if you already purchased tickets to these shows when they were first announced, they'll be honored.

As has been the case for the past decade, the Stones don't have any new music to promote (though the group recently released yet another greatest hits compilation), so you can expect a setlist that's heavy on the group's sizable trove of singles. Plus, the Stones are known for trotting out a few surprise guests—during the band's three-night stand at the United Center in 2013, Taylor Swift, Sheryl Crow, Taj Mahal and Mick Taylor joined the band onstage. It's anyone's guess as to who the band might rope in for its latest triumphant jaunt through the states.
