The Rolling Stones announce 50th tour dates!

After teasing the announcement with daily messages since last Friday, the Rolling Stones this morning confirmed what most people had assumed: they’re hitting the road one more time.

In a video posted on their YouTube channel at 9:00 a.m. ET sharp, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts are shown engaging in a video conference, with each saying hello in turn.  Wood is shown turning away from a canvas he’s painting, which bears the names of five cities: Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Boston and Philadelphia. “Well, it’s about time, gents,” Wood says.  “I’ve been waiting for this call.”

Check it out here:

Tickets for Oakland, San Jose, Toronto and Chicago go on sale beginning Monday, April 8 at 10:00 a.m. local time at RollingStones.com.  Citi cardmembers will be able to snag presale tickets beginning Friday.
