Manufacturing Glitch Pushes The Rolling Stones ‘Sticky Fingers’ Reissue Back Two Weeks

Music News

Rolling Stones fans will have to wait just a little bit longer for the band’s eagerly awaited deluxe edition of 1971’s Sticky Fingers. The group posted on its original website ( that the set’s release date has been pushed back, due to a manufacturing glitch in producing the workable zipper, which was the signature of Andy Warhol’s legendary LP cover. Instead of May 26th, fans will have to bear a two-week wait until June 9th for the reissue.

Mick Jagger admits that although the Stones played up their bad boy tendencies during their first decade as a band, he’s still amazed at how quickly the establishment chose to embrace the band: “But, y’know, in a funny way, we didn’t really have a (laughs) choice, y’know? ‘Okay, I’m gonna be an anti-hero now — now I’m not going to be!’ I had no real idea that our kinda slight scruffiness was going to turn into this anti-heroic act. In some ways, we were swept along with the tide, but we helped ourselves propel ourselves along with it.”

The Rolling Stones kick off their 15-date North American “Zip Code Tour” on May 24th at San Diego’s Petco Park.
