The Rolling Stones announced dates for their upcoming "50 and Counting" tour including a stop at the TD Garden on June 12. (Full tour itinerary below.)

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood will hit the road in the U.S. and Canada in May and June.

In the press release Jagger said, "'50 And Counting' has been pretty amazing so far. 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 Richards. "'Cause man, it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people."

Ticket details for the Boston show are TBA but tickets for Oakland, San Jose, Toronto and Chicago go on sale beginning Monday, April 8 at 10AM local time and will be available at www.rollingstones.com.

Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-74, will be a special guest throughout the tour.
