told BBC News that The Rolling Stones are officially rehearsing for an upcoming tour. Rumors about a tour to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary have been circulating for a while, but Richards’ claims are the first to back up the plans.
“There’s things in the works — I think it’s definitely happening,” he told BBC. “But when? I can’t say yet. We’re playing around with the idea and had a couple of rehearsals — We’ve got together and it feels so good.”
It was 50 years ago today that The Stones played their first show at London’s Marquee Club. In an interview with BBC’s Will Gompertz, Richards said: “Sometimes it’s hard work and you wonder why you’re doing it, but apart from those few moments, it’s been an incredible adventure.”
