On his podcast earlier this week, Alec Baldwin said, "I wonder if Mick Jagger is gonna hit a day... like does it happen in a day... is Mick Jagger in bed one day and he picks up the phone and he's like, you know, 'I just can't do it any more. I can't get out of this bed. I can't do another fucking show again.' And it's over." Well, not yet. This morning The Rolling Stones announced their "50 and Counting" North American tour, which kicks off at LA's Staples Center in "early May" (no exact date has been listed yet), and goes on like this (UPDATE: the updated schedule is here):

Early May: Los Angeles, Staples Center
May 5: Oakland, Oracle Arena
May 8: San Jose, HP Pavilion
May 11: Las Vegas, MGM Grand Garden Arena
May 15: Anaheim, Honda Center
May 25: Toronto, Air Canada Centre
May 28: Chicago, United Center
June 12: Boston, TD North Garden
June 18: Philadelphia, Wells Fargo Center

A source confirmed to Billboard that there will be 18 shows, so this is just half of the tour that's been announced, if that is accurate. They add that "the Stones are treating these shows as 'destination' events," which is what they did for their five shows last year (in New York and London).
