Listen to Rolling Stones on iHeartRadio

The Rolling Stones are back in action.  The wait is finally over, and the rock legends are launching their "50 and Counting" North American tour Friday night with a show in Los Angeles. 

The band will play a total of 17 shows over the course of the trek, making stops in ten cities.  The Stones will play a pair of shows in a number of cities, including Anaheim, Toronto, Boston, Philadelphia, and L.A.  They have a three-night stand set for Chicago. 

The tour is a continuation of the band's 50th anniversary celebration, and like their shows last fall will include an appearance from former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor. 

The tour also marks the Stones return to the road.  It's the band's first extended run of dates since their "A Bigger Bang" trek wrapped up in August 2007.
