Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO – June 6, 1975

The Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City concert was part of the extensive “Rolling Stones Tour of the Americas ’75”. Rufus and The Gap Band were also included in this Kansas City show. Joe Walsh made a guest appearance on stage with the Eagles, since he was a few months away from joining the Eagles permanently.

“The Rolling Stones Tour of the Americas ’75” was a 1975 concert tour originally intended to reach both North and South America. The plans for concerts in Central and South America never solidified, however, and the tour covered only the United States and Canada. The next stop on the tour for the Eagles was County Stadium in Milwaukee on June 8, 1975. About a month later they would be opening at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on July 6.

Arrowhead Stadium primarily serves as the home venue of the Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL. The stadium opened in 1972 and has a capacity of about 78,000. So, it was fairly new when the Eagles played there. In March 2021 it was renamed to ‘GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium’.
