The Rolling Stones Will Start Their World Tour Before The End Of 2012

Written by Kiel Egging on July 16, 2012

The Rolling Stones are set to play their first live shows in five years in the North American autumn (aka, the Australian spring).

Frontman Mick Jagger gave a new clue about the band’s return to the stage at the launch of a new exhibition of photographs documenting the band’s 50-year career at Somerset House in London.

Stereoboard reports Jagger winked at a reporter from the London Evening Standard when asked about the band’s next live performance, replying “in the autumn.”

“You will definitely be seeing us all together soon,” he continued. “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 eachother and we want to do some gigs.”

The band have been rehearsing in New York recently with former bass player Bill Wyman. They were tipped to perform at the London Olympics later this month; however, a performance is now very unlikely as Jagger believes the band aren’t match fit yet.

“We haven’t played in a long time and we weren’t really stage ready,” Jagger said.

“It’s a very big gig and it’s very risk taking. I didn’t think the band felt they were really ready to do it at this point.”
