Shannon Ryan

Okay, ya’ll – today marks the day you can officially let the tears roll. The Rolling Stones announced the next set of dates and locales for their “50 and Counting” tour, and unfortunately Minneapolis is not one of ‘em.

TBA Los Angeles, CA – STAPLES Center

5/5 Oakland, CA – Oracle Arena

5/8 San Jose, CA – HP Pavilion

5/11 Las Vegas, NV – MGM Grand Garden Arena

5/15 Anaheim, CA – Honda Center

5/25 Toronto, ON – Air Canada Centre

5/28 Chicago, IL – United Center

6/18 Philadelphia, PA – Wells Fargo Center

The band will hit up a series of West Coast venues before making their way Eastward. The only stop in the Midwest being on May 28th at the United Center in Chicago, Ill. That’s not too far of a trek, folks, and to-tal-ly worth it. Tickets for the Chi show go on sale on April 8th at 10 a.m. CST. Plan your road trip and hotel accommodations now. And start making a series of bitchin’ RS playlists. I’ll get you started with the Top 10 Rolling Stones songs ever recorded. Yahtzee!
