The Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour, which has been “on the cards” for a while now, looks to be becoming more of a possibility with more info that we’ve heard today. It now seems they’re planning for 20 dates around the world, with an Australian date very likely, and these shows could also be free.

Herald Sun music reporter Nui Te Koha spoke to Triple M this morning about the iconic rock legends new plans to tour.

“There is going to be a big concert worldwide. The Rolling Stones are thinking 20 dates around the world. They have to be landmark cities to fit in with this vibe”

“The word is the concerts are going to be free and that it’s all going to be sponsored by corporates. That’s the latest mail. You would have to think Australia is in the mix for one of the 20 spots up for grabs, surely.”

There ware talks about them coming to Australia as a part of their anniversary tour this year, with goldcoast.com.au reporting that there had been discussions about “planning another Aussie run”.

However, guitarist Keith Richards and frontman Mick Jagger said that the band are just not quite ready to hit the road yet, but 2013 could be the new goal and that they have “a feeling that’s more realistic”.
