Rolling Stones to tour again, but Twin Cities stop appears unlikely


The Rolling Stones are hitting the road again, but Minnesota fans shouldn't get their hopes up about the band making a stop in the Twin Cities, the Star Tribune reports.

The legendary rockers announced the first nine dates of their "50 & Counting Tour" Wednesday, and Billboard reports that nine more shows will be announced.

Citing concert industry sources, the Star Tribune says the Twin Cities is currently not being considered for a Stones tour date, despite the fact that concert promoter AEG operates both Target Center and Target Field in Minneapolis.

The tour kicks off in California at Oakland's Oracle Arena on May 5, and the closest it will get to Minnesota is a May 28 date at Chicago's United Center.

The 50 & Counting Tour is continuation of the band's 50th anniversary celebration, which began last November with a concert at London's O2 Arena.

See the announcement of the tour in the video below, where Mick Jagger video conferences in bandmates Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ron Woods.
