The Rolling Stones Will Never Gather Moss

The Rolling Stones50 years after playing their first show and releasing their first album, The Rolling Stones are set to tour again this summer. Recently, according to numerous music news sites (Rolling Stone, NME, Billboard, etc.) a “concert business source” has confirmed that the Stones plan to play 18 concerts in North America this year.

In addition, the band is slated to headline the Hard Rock Calling festival in Glastonbury in June.This announcement begs the question, will the band embark on another world tour like their 2005-2007 “A Bigger Bang” tour? Their incomparable frontman, Mick Jagger, noted that “there have been quite a few offers” and guitarist Keith Richards added, “Really, all you’re going to have to do is wait for an announcement.”

The Stones released a compilation album titled GRRR! late last year, which has served as a point of speculation and discussion regarding the band’s future. Also last year, the band played a series of “50 and Counting” shows in London and New York that critics have called “some of their tightest shows in years.” At these shows, the band played with former members (Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman) and guests such as Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck as well as playing rare tracks.

Growing old and feeling adventurous (or is it restless?) the Stones may be setting out to embark on a world tour like no other. Heralding Richards’ advice, all we can do is wait for the full announcement.
