"Everyone was a bit reluctant to say how keen they were to go back on the road," said guitarist Ronnie Wood in a video clip posted on the band's website.
"But you kind of knew it was going to happen," added guitarist Keith Richards.
"When you get back together again, you have so many years of experience, it's easy to restart," lead singer Mick Jagger said. "The communication between me and [drummer Charlie Watts] and Keith and Ronnie is really quite easy."
"All the magic comes back when we get back together," Wood said.
The 11-show "50 and Counting" tour is to begin in Los Angeles in the coming weeks but an exact date hasn't been determined.
The tour is to wrap up in London July 6.
The band's most recent major concert tour ended in 2007.
