Fans have been wondering for months if this year’s Rolling Stones tour dates marked the end of the road for the band, and now they have their answer. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards posted a video to the band’s website announcing a March 22, 2014 date at Australia’s Adelaide Oval.

While no opening act is mentioned in the press release announcing the show, it does mention that — just like all of the shows on their 50 & Counting Tour — former Stone Mick Taylor will be appear as a special guest.

In the video, Mick Jagger said: “It’s great to be invited to Adelaide to open the historic Oval…we’re really looking forward to doing this gig, it will be the first time we’ve been to Adelaide in nearly 20 years, so see you there!”

Keith Richards, filmed separately, added: “Hi everyone down in Adelaide, it’s been a while since we were in your backyard… see you on March 22 when we’ll take over your new stadium and make it our own, look forward to it.”

The press release also mentions that “more Rolling Stones concerts in Australia, and one in New Zealand, will be announced by Frontier Touring & AEG Live in the next few weeks.” Whether the band will play shows anywhere else — including America — still remains to be seen.
