The Rolling Stones have finally announced their much-anticipated 50th anniversary concerts, in which all the band members will reunite on stage for the first time in five years.
'Sorry to keep you all hanging around but the waiting is over. I've always said the best place for rock and roll is on the stage and the same is true for the Stones. I'm here with Mick, Charlie and Ronnie and everything is rocking. See you very soon!' - Keith Richards
They will play London's O2 Arena on November 25th and 29th, and the Prudential Center, Newark, on December 13th and 15th, 2012. The shows are set to be explosive, with the band recruiting their long-term collaborators, set designer Mark Fisher and lighting director Patrick Woodroffe.
Tickets for the London shows go on sale Friday, at 9am, while the American dates will be available October 26th at noon eastern time. Click here for more information.
