Zac Brown Band will kick off the show for The Rolling Stones on one of their tour stops this November.

The eight-member country band announced on Thursday (September 23):

"Couldn’t be more honored to warm up the stage for @therollingstones Nov. 11 in our hometown. Pumped for this one!”

The event at Mercedes-Benz Stadium comes at the heels of Zac Brown Band’s next album, The Comeback, which is set to release on October 15. Frontman Zac Brown previously said in a statement:

The Comeback celebrates our collective resilience as a community…This music is about standing together and rediscovering our roots and what makes us human. We feel incredibly blessed to be back out on the road again, sharing these new songs with our fans. The only good thing about getting knocked down is The Comeback when it comes back around.”

The Rolling Stones confirmed last month that they would still hit the road on the “No Filter” Tour after losing legendary drummer Charlie Watts. He was 80. Mick Jagger, 78, shared a clip from the band’s “first show of our 20-21 tour,” which included a heartfelt tribute to their late bandmate:

“I must say though, at this point it’s a bit of a poignant night for us because it’s our first tour in 59 years that we’ve done without our lovely Charlie Watts…We’d like to dedicate this show to Charlie. Let’s have a drink to Charlie!”
