Who knew 50 could feel so good for the Stones and their fans?
The Rolling Stones, who rocked London and New York in 2012, will kick off their "50 AND COUNTING" tour in Los Angeles at the STAPLES Center. The date is TBA pending NBA/NHL playoff schedules. The tour debut will be followed by performances in Oakland, San Jose, Las Vegas, Anaheim, Toronto, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia.
"50 AND COUNTING" continues the exhilarating celebration of the band's first 50 years-five decades of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood bringing their iconic music and ground-breaking stage shows to audiences around the globe.
"'50 AND COUNTING' has been pretty amazing so far," said singer Mick Jagger. "We did a few shows in London and New York last year...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...with a few little gems tucked in here and there. The stage is shaped like lips and goes off into the venue so I get to run around in the crowd. It's great fun to be able to get that close to the audience."
"From day one at rehearsals it sounded so fresh. You could tell that everybody was dying to get their teeth into it. It was like...open the gates...let us out!" said guitarist Keith Richards. "Cause man, it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people."
