The Rolling Stones making history at Gillette Thursday night

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Rock legends The Rolling Stones are set to make history at Gillette Stadium on Thursday night, marking the 100th concert held at the venue during their tour across 16 North American cities. The band’s 2024 Hackney Diamonds tour, named after their latest studio album, will bring music icons Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood to Foxborough, with the tour concluding in mid-July in Santa Clara, California.

This performance holds significance as it is the band’s first studio project since 2005, making it a nostalgic moment for both the band and their fans. The Rolling Stones previously played at Gillette Stadium on September 5, 2002, for the venue’s inaugural concert. This will be the fourth time the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will grace Foxborough with their presence.

Joining The Rolling Stones at Gillette will be the up-and-coming band, The Red Clay Strays. The concert is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m., with parking lots opening at 3:30 p.m. and gates at 5:30 p.m. To ensure a smooth experience, stadium officials advise fans to allow extra travel time due to the weekday commuter traffic that will coincide with the event.

Local roads will have traffic restrictions in place, causing potential delays before and after the show. Fans are urged to use Interstate 95, Interstate 495, or Route 140 to access Route 1 and Gillette Stadium. Additionally, the venue’s clear bag policy will be enforced, only allowing small wristlets or handheld wallets inside the stadium. The MBTA Commuter Rail and Keolis are offering round-trip special event train services from Boston to the concert, with limited $20 tickets available exclusively through the mTicket app.

For a seamless experience, ensure to purchase tickets prior to boarding the event train, as all passengers, including children under 11, must have a ticket to board. Get ready to witness history as The Rolling Stones take the stage for an unforgettable night at Gillette Stadium.
