Rolling Stones heading to Detroit in July on 'Zip Code' tour

The Rolling Stones are heading to Detroit this summer.
The rock band announced a North American stadium tour Tuesday that includes a July 8 show at Comerica Park, the home of the Detroit Tigers.
The "Zip Code" tour will once again reunite singer Mick Jagger, drummer Charlie Watts and guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood.
It's an event that some are saying could be the last time their northern Michigan fan base could get to see them play.
"You know everything the stones have ever done, you've taken around northern Michigan with you as you've been growing up," said Jason Crum, the afternoon host at WKLT in Traverse City.
Crum says people continue to live vicariously through their music and re-visit their youth every time they hear certain songs. For Crum, it was "Start Me Up".
"It just takes you back to when you were a kid," said Crum. "I was 10 years old when I bought their first album and I knew all their music from before then."
WKLT plays The Rolling Stones all the time at the request of young and old listeners.
"They are northern Michigan... The Stones," said Jim Smith, a Co-Host at WKLT. "If they were to come north, they'd probably have a larger show up here than they're going to pull in Detroit."
Smith said The Stones' music bridges generations because they've been around for decades and who knows when something like this will happen again.
"I don't want to say it's the last opportunity to get to see them, but it probably is," said Smith.
"I mean Mick Jagger is still Mick Jagger, he's prancing around stage every night like a kid at 71," said Crum. "I'm 45 and I can't get out of bed and this guy I mean he's a legend and we have a chance to see him again, it might be our last chance you don't know."
Tickets are scheduled to go on sale for the general public on April 13 at 10 a.m.
The "Zip Code" tour will start in California this May and end in Quebec in July.
