We’re going to play many cities we didn’t get to before and also return to some of our favorite places," said Mick Jagger. "There is plenty of time for rehearsals and to be able to make some set changes – we’ll have a variety of material ready so we can keep it fresh." Jagger adds, "Keith’s fine, his heads better, he’s playing well and enjoying himself so we’re all looking forward to this leg of the tour." "I thought we left too soon you know, so that’s the reason we’re coming back. I’m really happy that we got some more gigs in America and Canada," said Keith Richards.
