Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers reissue lands US Top 5 debut

The newly-released reissue of the Rolling Stones 1971 album classic, “Sticky Fingers”, has landed a US Top 5 debut.

Billboard reports the reissue enters the Billboard 200 at No. 5 with opening week sales of 36,000 copies.

The Super Deluxe version - which tracks separately due to its additional extra content – debuts at No. 65 with 9,000 copies.

The Rolling Stones are currently playing concerts on their Zip Code tour of North America to promote the expanded reissue, which is rounded out with alternate and unreleased tracks from the sessions.

The band warmed up for the tour with a May 20 club show at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, which was filmed for a possible future release.

The club date presented what the band billed as a “one-time only set” featuring the original “Sticky Fingers” album in its entirety with additional hits.
