The Rolling Stones have announced a series of upcoming tour dates in an effort to make enough money to pay for Keith Richards’ blood transfusions. The "50 And Counting" tour—which, so far, is only nine dates—kicks off in Los Angeles before meandering to several other major North American markets. Billboard reports that it’s heard that the tour will be a total of 18 dates, meaning that all nine of these stops could get second nights (though that’s as yet unconfirmed). Ex-Stone Mick Taylor will be joining the band for the shows.
