The Stones Tour To Roll Into 2013?
October 16, 2012


Rolling Stones
On Monday, the Rolling Stones made it official that they will play a handful of concerts at the end of 2012 to commemorate their 50th anniversary. Titled the 50 And Counting...The Rolling Stones Live tour, the rockers will play November 25 and 29 at London's O2 Arena and December 13 and 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. They've also hinted that there could be more shows on the horizon. In an interview with the BBC's Matt Everitt, Keith Richards said "I wouldn't be surprised" when asked if his band would be playing more concerts.

"Nobody's actually given a heads up on that, but I don't think that this band is gonna wind up all of this for four shows. I think they want to do something for the end of the year, and I think next year probably looks like it's on," Richards said. He added that 2013 would actually be a more appropriate year for a 50th anniversary tour, since
 the Stones consider next year the group's real 50th birthday because 1963 marks the year that Charlie Watts joined the group. "This year to us is a conception," joked Richards, "next year is the birth, but everybody around the world has decided a conception's worth a celebration."

Meanwhile, the Stones posted a photo on Twitter of a handwritten setlist that could signal the list of songs they are considering for the 50th anniversary gigs. The list includes "Honky Tonk Woman," "Beast Of Burden," "Wild Horses," "She's So Cold," "Start Me Up," "Paint It Black," "The Last Time," "Ruby Tuesday," "Midnight Rambler" and many more. In an interview with the U.K.'s Evening Standard, Mick Jagger said the group is rehearsing about 60 songs ahead of the live shows and that they had "been in touch" with former bass player Bill Wyman about joining them at some point.
