Excelsior, Minn. man Mr. Jimmy Hutmaker may not have actually inspired The Rolling Stones' 1969 classic ‘You Can't Always Get What You Want,' but the group announced Wednesday they'll be taking a nine-city tour starting at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The first date has yet to be announced, but the second show is in Oakland, Calif., on May 5. The tour will also visit San Jose, Calif.; Las Vegas; Anaheim, Calif.; Toronto; Chicago; and Boston. The tour ends June 18 in Philadelphia.
Tickets for Oakland, San Jose, Toronto and Chicago go on sale April 8. Ticket sales for the other cities will be announced later.
Rolling Stone writer David Dalton claims that "Mr Jimmy" refers to Jimmy Miller producer of all of the Rolling Stones albums, but the late Hutmaker did succeed making himself a unique tourist attraction in the lake community.
