The guitarist reunited with the group for its 50th anniversary shows last year (12) and recently admitted he would love to perform with his old pals again for their headlining set at Britain's Glastonbury festival this summer (13).

Now his wish has been granted - Taylor has been invited back to rock out with Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood on their 50 and Counting dates, which kick off in the U.S. next month (May13).

Richards reveals, "We have the added beauty of keeping Mick Taylor with us as well this time."

The 69 year old admits Taylor's presence onstage will ease the pressure on himself and Wood during the gigs as they often have a tough time deciding which of the many guitar parts in their songs they can and can't perform between the two of them.

He tells U.S. TV host Jimmy Fallon, "It's great that he wanted to do some more. Ronnie and I, you understand, the Stones records, sometimes they're four, five, maybe six guitars on them that we carefully overlay and artistically manufacture, and then we get onstage and there's two of us and we have to decide which are the important bits! So to have Mick Taylor with us as an added third guitar, this means this is gonna be an interesting tour all around."

Taylor originally quit the band in 1974 and was replaced by Wood.
