Rolling Stones announce May 2nd for L.A. tour launch

Listen to The Rolling Stones on iHeartRadio

The Rolling Stones are a little closer to knowing just when they'll be starting their North American tour.  The band has announced that they'll be taking the stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on May 2nd to kick off their "50 and Counting" trek.  Tickets for the show go on sale next Monday. 

However, the Stones add that the May 2nd date is "subject to change pending NBA/NHL playoff schedule."  When the Stones originally announced their tour last week they offered no date at all for the L.A. show.  The band just said it would be their first concert, and would take place sometime prior to their second scheduled stop in Oakland, California on May 5th. 

The Stones have also tacked on a few more dates to the trek.  The group has added two more shows in Chicago, and are now slated to play three shows in the Windy City on May 28th, May 31st, and June 3rd.  They've also included a stop in Toronto on June 6th.
