The Stones will perform May 5 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, and May 8 at HP Pavilion in San Jose. Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, April 8, with a presale starting at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 5. Pricing information is not yet available, but the top tickets are expected to go for $500-$650.

"The band will treat their generations of fans to an evening of classic Stones hits like

'Gimme Shelter,' 'Paint It Black,' 'Jumping Jack Flash,' 'Tumbling Dice,' and 'It's Only Rock and Roll,' curated with lesser known gems, and a cover or two," said a statement released today.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
