“You kind of knew it was bound to happen again,” Keith Richards says in a video the Rolling Stones uploaded to YouTube today.
Indeed. The Stones will be returning to the road, the band announced in the video. They’ll be hitting up nine American cities (well, one’s Canadian, actually, but you know) from West to East, starting in Los Angeles sometime before May 5 (their first date is still under wraps) and ending in Philadelphia on June 18.
After that, the boys will pop back into England to play their only London date, at Hyde Park on July 6.
“I thought that we should continue doing this when the 50th anniversary came up,” Mick Jagger says in the video, referring to the band’s milestone last year. Hence the name of the venture, “The 50 and Counting Tour.”
