Welcome To Rockville returns with 3 days of bone crushing force!
Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the Rolling Stones were headed back out on tour in 2019, playing stadiums around North America.
While that information shouldn’t shock anybody, the speculation that Jacksonville will be a location for a tour date should!
The buzz really started earlier this week when hints began popping up all over the country that the band was gearing up to get back out on the road...
So when hints began popping up all over today’s Jags game, some folks were expecting it, while others were shocked.
We’re seeing a few hints around the stadium today to consider:
We’re not sure when an official announcement is due out, but we have to imagine that it is days away if the teases are getting this loud and frequent.
The last time the band played Northeast Florida, TIAA Bank Field didn’t even exist. Instead, the Gator Bowl played host to the show.
The second anything official is announced, count on 96.9 The Eagle to bring you the info.
Also don’t forget to download the Eagle app and turn on push notifications so when we do make an announcement, or even give away free tickets to the show, you’ll be the first to hear about it!
96.9 The Eagle is excited to welcome Weird Al Yankovic to the area as his “The Stings Attached Tour 2019” makes a stop at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on June 9th!
Tickets go on sale Friday (11/16) at the amphitheater at 10am, as well as online at this Ticketmaster link.
Yankovic last visited the area a few years back with a set at the Florida Theatre to rave reviews.
Weird Al’s last single, “The Hamilton Polka”, ended up being the first ever polka song in history to land on the Billboard Digital Sales chart (at #23) and also debuted at #1 on the Comedy Songs chart!

News of the tour was delivered in trademark larger-than-life KISS style with a blistering performance of “Detroit Rock City”, proving why the band is known as one of the most iconic live performances that simply can’t be missed.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide have toured to nearly every city on the planet and played every venue imaginable. Having played for Kings & Queens, for U.S. veterans, and for millions of devoted KISS Army fans, they will play their final shows as part of the multi-year END OF THE ROAD WORLD TOUR.
Just like that, the rock gods have sent word from high in the metal clouds...
Again, the largest rock festival in the region is going to be taking over Duval for 3 days.
That would all-but guarantee that camping options will be available for the 2nd straight year as well as the standard hotel and commuter packages.
