The Rolling Stones are headed to Australia, and they're taking Mick Taylor along.

The enduring rock 'n' roll favorites announced Tuesday they'll be playing a gig March 22 at the Adelaide Oval. They haven't played in Australia since 2006. A news release says ex-member Taylor will be a special guest for the concert.

The date is the latest on the 50 and Counting tour, a celebration of the five decades Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have been together. It began last November.

The Stones will be the first entertainment event at the Oval, a sports field that's undergone a refurbishment. It's been nearly two decades since the band visited Adelaide, leading Richards to say, "It's been awhile, right?" in a promo video.
