The apparently tireless Rolling Stones, now septuagenarians across the board, have just announced a slew of new tour dates for this summer. Pitchfork announces that the 15-stop two-month North American tour will kick off in San Diego on May 8, wrapping up in Atlanta on July 9. The dates appear to be an extension of the band’s No Filter tour, which kicked off in 2017 but had to postpone some dates last year as Mick Jagger underwent heart valve surgery.

In a video released on Twitter along with the announcements, the Stones try to explain why they remain on tour instead of just staying at home taking naps on their giant piles of money. “Every time we get together at rehearsal, we are like kids in a candy store,” says Keith, possibly Ron. “The audience, they give you so much energy; they’re so vibrant and alive,” adds Mick (we’re pretty sure), suggesting that the band is back on tour to suck the life force out of their fans. Seems to be working for them so far; 2019 setlists included almost 20 songs, including classics like “Street Fighting Man, “Sympathy For The Devil,” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Tickets go on sale on February 12 for what is probably not even your final time to see these guys, so enjoy:
