NEW YORK -- Call it satisfaction: The Rolling Stones have announced a nine-city tour.

The veteran rockers said Wednesday their "50 and Counting" tour will kick off in Los Angeles at the Staples Center on a date to be announced later.

The band makes a stop at the United Center in Chicago on Tuesday, May 28. Tickets for that show go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, April 8.

The second show is in Oakland, Calif., on May 5. The tour will also visit San Jose, Calif.; Las Vegas; Anaheim, Calif.; Toronto; and Boston. The tour wraps June 18 in Philadelphia.

Tickets for Oakland, San Jose and Toronto also go on sale April 8. Ticket sales for the other cities will be announced later.

The band will also headline the Glastonbury Festival on June 29 and will perform at London's Hyde Park on July 6.

Former band mate Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969 through 1974, will be a special guest throughout the tour.

The foursome celebrated their 50 anniversary late last year, playing five sold-out shows in New York, New Jersey and London. Special guests included Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, the Black Keys and Mary J. Blige.

"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," Mick Jagger said in a statement. "It's a good show."

"From day one at rehearsals it sounded so fresh. You could tell that everybody was dying to get their teeth into it," Keith Richards said. "... it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people."

The band released a 30-second video early Wednesday featuring Jagger, Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood chatting about getting together again.

Wood says in a video conversation over the computer with his band mates: "Well it's about time kids. I've been waiting for this call."
