The Rolling Stones to Plan 50th Anniversary Concert

Rolling Stone has reported that The Rolling Stones will be gathering in London in July to plan at least one 50th anniversary performance later this year.

The show would mark the band’s first appearance together since 2007. In addition to plotting a 50th anniversary show, the Stones will discuss recording their first album since 2005’s A Bigger Bang, as well as a potential 2013 tour. In April, the band met in New York to rehearse for a week.

The Rolling Stones formed in 1962, playing blues covers around London. Original members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and drummer Charlie Watts are all still with the band. Original guitarist Brian Jones died in 1969 and original bassist Bill Wyman left the band in 1992. Current guitarist Ronnie Wood has been with the Stones since 1975.
