Updat: Tickets, priced from $153 to $753, will go on sale Friday, April 19 at 10 a.m. Vegas time.

After months of speculation about their plans, The Rolling Stones confirmed details for their "50 and Counting" tour today, and the itinerary includes a Las Vegas date.

The legendary British rockers will hit the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, May 11, after performances in LA (date TBA), Oakland (May 5) and San Jose (May 8). Other cities announced thus far: Anaheim, Toronto, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia.

Ticket prices and on-sale information have yet to be revealed.

A press release for the tour promises "an evening of classic Stones hits ... curated with lesser known gems, and a cover or two." Also, it reveals that "the stage design for the tour is based on the band's ubiquitous tongue and lips logo, which extends out into the crowd, allowing the Stones to interact directly with their audience," and that "[guitarist] Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-74, will be a special guest throughout the tour."

The MGM has been a regular U.S. tour stop for the Stones over the years. They have played there nine times since 1994, most recently on November 11, 2006.
