The Rolling Stones will continue their celebration of 50 years together as a band with a handful of US tour dates and their first ever appearance at the UK's massive Glastonbury festival this year.
Last year marked the 50th Anniversary of The Rolling Stones -- Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman -- and of that quintet, Jagger, Richards, and Watts remain. Wyman took part in a handful of shows on the 50th leg last year and the first guitarist to replace the fired Brian Jones, Mick Taylor, also participated. Taylor is expected to make appearances with Jagger, Richards, Watts, Ronnie Wood, Darryl Jones, and the rest of the touring brigade that has joined The Stones on stage over the years.
The announced US dates kick off with a show in LA (the exact date has yet to be locked down) and runs through May and June for a total of nine US shows. They've also put together a video trailer for the upcoming tour. You can see both the trailer and the confirmed dates below.
I wonder if they'll play "Jumping Jack Flash" at any of these shows...
