The Rolling Stones may be hitting the road.

Rumors have been swirling about the possibility of a Rolling Stones tour since the famed band celebrated its 50th anniversary with shows in Brooklyn, Newark, and London. Now, Rolling Stone is reporting that the Rolling Stones will embark on an 18-show North American tour, set to begin May 2nd.

"Really, all you're going to have to do is wait for an announcement," Keith Richards said earlier about plans for a tour.

Earlier this week, Billboard reported that the band would play "fewer than 20" shows, with an announcement expected later this month.

The Rolling Stones were recently celebrated with an exhibit at the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, entitled "Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction."
