The Stones are scheduled to play Boston's TD Garden on June 12, according to the venue's website, though no ticket information is yet available.

According to a press release sent out Wednesday, the band announced that the tour will kick off in Los Angeles later this spring, at a date yet to be announced. Then on May 5 the band will play Oakland, California, followed by San Jose, California on May 8.

Boston is the only New England stop on the announced schedule so far. Tickets for some of the dates – but not the Boston one – will go on sale Monday at  www.rollingstones.com
