The Rolling Stones are zipping across North America again.

The rock band has announced a 15-city stadium tour that will kick off on May 24 at Petco Park in San Diego, California.

Other stops include Columbus, Ohio; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Dallas, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; Orlando, Florida; and Nashville, Tennessee.

The Zip Code tour will once again reunite singer Mick Jagger, drummer Charlie Watts and guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood.

The last time the Rolling Stones played North American stadiums was during their A Bigger Bang Tour in 2006. They opted for arena venues for their 50 And Counting tour in 2012 and 2013.

“We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America,” said Richards in a statement. “I can’t wait to get back on the stage!”

And quite the stage it will be, including a section that juts far into the crowd, allowing the British band to interact with fans.

As is the band’s practice, the stage design will employ cutting-edge technology to enhance the performance, including video screens and special effects.

Other cities on the Zip Code tour include Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Kansas City, Missouri; Raleigh, North Carolina; Indianapolis, Indiana; Detroit, Michigan; Buffalo, New York and Quebec in Canada. Tickets will go on sale April 13.

The tour will coincide with the re-release of their seminal album Sticky Fingers on May 26. The 1971 recording features such classics as Brown Sugar, Wild Horses and Dead Flowers.

The band interrupted last year’s 14 On Fire and rescheduled all their Australia and New Zealand dates after fashion designer L’Wren Scott, Jagger’s companion since 2001, took her own life.

The tour concluded on November 22 at the Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.
