Voodoo Lounge Tour

The Voodoo Lounge Tour was a worldwide concert tour by the Rolling Stones to promote their 1994 album Voodoo Lounge. This was their first tour without bassist Bill Wyman, and their first with touring bassist Darryl Jones, as an additional musician. The tour grossed $320 million, replacing Pink Floyd's Division Bell tour as the highest grossing of any artist at that time.[2] This was subsequently overtaken by a few other tours, but it remains the Rolling Stones' second highest grossing tour behind their 2005–2007 A Bigger Bang Tour.[3]

"There were lots of hacks out there who said we couldn't do it anymore", remarked Mick Jagger. "But maybe what they meant was they couldn't do it anymore. Anyway, once we started playing, all that died down. You can talk about it and talk about it – but, once we're onstage, the question is answered."[4]

Production design was by Mark Fisher, Charlie Watts, Mick Jagger and Patrick Woodroffe. Graphic design and video animation was by Mark Norton. Total attendance 6.5 million.
