"We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer! We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs," Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger said.
"We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America! I can't wait to get back on the stage!" guitarist Keith Richards added.
The Rolling Stones concert will be the first at Ralph Wilson Stadium since June 20, 2001, when the Dave Matthews Band performed in Orchard Park. The Rolling Stones have played at Ralph Wilson Stadium on four previous dates (Aug. 8, 1975; July 4, 1978; Sept. 27, 1981; and Oct. 8, 1997).
"The Buffalo Bills are proud to host the legendary Rolling Stones at Ralph Wilson Stadium this summer. This will mark the fifth appearance for these rock icons at The Ralph, and Western New York is in store for a very special evening," Bills President Russ Brandon said.
The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick, Keith, 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 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 the band's storied catalog.

The stage design for the stadium shows includes a thrust that extends deep into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their fans. Known for their groundbreaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones' set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones' show.
AEG Live's Concerts West is the promoter of The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour.
The tour will also coincide with the Rolling Stones re-release of "Sticky Fingers" May 26 by Universal Music. "Sticky Fingers," one of the most revered albums from the Rolling Stones, is set to enthrall a new generation of fans in 2015. The 1971 classic features timeless tracks such as "Brown Sugar," "Wild Horses" and "Dead Flowers." "Sticky Fingers" 2015, with its iconic zip cover, will be unveiled in a variety of formats. The deluxe editions include a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones studio outtakes from the "Sticky Fingers" sessions and live performances from that time. These sought-after tracks have never been available until this release.
Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller, "Sticky Fingers" was released just before the Stones became tax exiles in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most groundbreaking design in rock history, with its famous working zip on the front cover and artwork by Andy Warhol.
