What does 50 and Counting refer to? Not the number of groupies immortalized in song by Mick Jagger or the number of known hallucinogens ingested by Keith Richards during the ’80s. It’s actually the name of the current Rolling Stones North American tour (celebrating the band’s five decades of playing together), which kicked off in Los Angeles May 3 and will wrap up here in Washington June 24 at the Verizon Center before the Stones head back to the UK.

Tickets for the DC show go on sale Monday, May 13, via the band’s website or Ticketmaster, with a Citibank presale beginning Friday, May 10. One thousand $85 tickets will be available for different sections of the arena. For more information about the current tour, visit the Stones’ website.
