There’s been widespread speculation since the middle of last year, pretty much, about whether or not the Rolling Stones would be touring to commemorate their 50th anniversary. The group hasn’t toured since their Bigger Bang tour ended a while back, and the current hurdle to their tour is apparently Keith Richards making fun of Jagger in his autobiography, Life.
But according to Ron Wood, the band has been talking again, and they feel they owe it to their fans to tour. Here’s what he said:
Be lovely, wouldn’t it? That’s what we’re on the verge of. I dunno what the hell is gonna happen yet but we all feel we owe it to ourselves and to the people to do something.
So, what does that mean? Nothing really. But I would be totally surprised if they don’t tour. There’s too much money on the table for a 50th anniversary tour. [NME]
