Rolling Stones to perform later this year
July 16, 2012The Rolling Stones met on Thursday to mark 50 years since their first gig and also to unveil a photo exhibition in Somerset House to promote their new photobook, "Rolling Stones: 50".
When asked by the London Evening Standard when the band would next perform, Mick replied, "In the autumn."
"You will definitely be seeing us all together soon. It’s been great fun being back together and there are a lot of memories in here. I can't believe it's been 50 years. We've been hanging out together, seeing quite a bit of each other and we want to do some gigs."
Keith Richards, on the other hand, was not as prepared to reveal so much. He told the BBC, "There's things in the works - I think it's definitely happening... But when? I can't say yet. We're playing around with the idea and had a couple of rehearsals - we've got together and it feels so good."
But Richards did go on to make it clear that the Stones have no plans to stop after this milestone. He said, "There might be life in the old dog yet - we'll die gracefully, elegantly wasted. Sometimes its hard work and you wonder why you're doing it, but apart from those few moments it's been an incredible adventure."
All in all, this is very exciting news!
