SAN DIEGO — The Rolling Stones kicked-off their summer tour before a sold-out crowd at Petco Park Sunday night.

The Stones, whose lineup on the “Zip Code” tour includes San Diego- based saxophonist Karl Denson, will hit 15 cities in the U.S. and Canada.

“We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer!” singer Mick Jagger said on the band’s website. “We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs.”

Fans heard their old favorites such as “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock `N’ Roll.”

Grammy-winning blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr. opened the show at 8 p.m., followed by the rock legends.

Prior to Sunday’s concert, Jagger was posting pictures on Facebook of himself enjoying the sights of San Diego.

    I Think it is so lovely to see Mick Jagged and The Rolling Stones come to San Diego. They are a part of History. I remember the Rolling Stones since I was little. I’m 50 years and Mick Jagged and the Rolling Stones is still here on Earth with us Amen.

    Mick Jagger looked very healthy and hearty to me. It is obvious he takes great care of himself to be able to run all over that stage like he does. Sometimes his antics last night seemed kind of cheesy but it was very entertaining. The other original Stones and Ronnie Wood hung in their pretty good. I suppose they are thinking about how their bank accounts will benefit from the proceeds of this summer tour.
