By Michael Apr 27, 2024

Mick Jagger certainly felt “2000 Light Years From Home” this week, when he stopped by NASA’s headquarters.

The Rolling Stones frontman stopped by the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, before the iconic rock band kicks off their Hackney Diamonds Tour in the city on Sunday (April 28). “Thanks @nasa for being so welcoming to us and great to be shown around by astronauts Josh Cassada, Bob Hines and Jessica Meir,” Jagger captioned a series of photos from his visit that he posted on Instagram.

In the snaps, the 80-year-old rocker is seen smiling in front of the mission control center, which features a sign welcoming him on the screen inside. He also is seen trying on a VR headset to explore the moon virtually, experiencing a spacecraft simulator, and posing alongside the astronauts.

The Stones’ Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood will hit 16 cities on the AARP-sponsored tour, beginning with an April 28 show at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The swing will include a stop at Jazz Fest in New Orleans on May 2, as well as stadium shows in Las Vegas, Seattle, Orlando, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Denver, Chicago, Vancouver, and Los Angeles, wrapping up on July 17 with a gig at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.

The band unveiled their 26th studio albumHackney Diamonds, marking the first new Rolling Stones album of original music since the release of 2005’s A Bigger Bang, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album also is the first since the death of band’s drummer Charlie Watts, who passed away at age 80 in 2021.
