Rolling Stones Announce North American Tour Dates

The Rolling Stones have announced the dates for their "50 and Counting" tour. The nine-date tour will launch in Los Angeles at the Staples Center (the exact date will depend on NHL and NBA playoffs) and wrap in Philadelphia on June 18 at the Wells Fargo Center. It is also expected that a New York City date will be added to the list of tour stops in the near future.

"50 and Counting has been pretty amazing so far," said Mick Jagger in a statement. "We did a few shows in London and New York . . . and had such a good time that we thought . . . let's do some more. It's a good show. Lots of the classic stuff everyone wants to hear."

Tickets for four of the nine announced dates (in Oakland, San Jose, Toronto and Chicago) go on sale Monday, April 8 at 10 a.m. at
