Listen: Keith Richards Speculates – More Rolling Stone Gigs For 2013

Written by Marc Zanotti on October 17, 2012

Fans young and old, and really old, revelled in the news that The Rolling Stones are coming back to the stage for four shows later this year to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary. The first two shows will take place on Sunday, November 25 and Thursday, November 29 at London’s O2 Arena, which, as previously noted by Music Feeds, was the venue of the Stones’ last performance in 2007.

The next two shows are scheduled for Thursday, December 13 and Saturday, December 15 at Prudential Center in New Jersey. Rolling Stone (the magazine) speculated at the time that a more thorough tour would follow in 2013, and it seems that the Stone’s legendary guitarist Keith Richards agrees. When asked by Matt Everitt of BBC as to whether more shows would follow in 2013, Richards assured that it was a strong possibility.

“You know I wouldn’t be surprised,” Richards told Everitt, “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.”

As noted by Rolling Stone, 2013 is in many ways a more appropriate year to commemorate the The Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary as 1963 was the year when drummer Charlie Watts joined the lineup.

“This year to us is a conception,” Richards joked, “Next year is the birth, but everybody around the world has decided a conception’s worth a celebration.”
