LONDON (AP) — You can’t always get what you want — but if your desire is to attend a Rolling Stones concert this might be your lucky day.

The legendary band said Monday it would return to the stage this year with four concerts in Britain and the U.S. The shows will take place on Nov. 25 and 29 at London’s O2 Arena, followed by gigs on Dec. 13 and 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., just outside of New York.

The shows mark the first time in five years that the Stones have performed live, with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood all coming together once more. The band said it was the “crowning glory” of celebrations marking its 50th anniversary of its first gig.

“Everybody loves a celebration, and London and New York are two good places to do it in!” Jagger said in a statement.

The Stones have sold more than 200 million records, with hits including “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” and “Street Fighting Man.”
