Rolling Stones to discuss 50th anniversary plans
The Rolling Stones will meet in London in July to discuss playing a one-off gig marking their 50th anniversary this year, Rolling Stone reports. Insiders told the magazine that the band is also considering a tour in 2013 and the possibility of recording their first new album since 2005's A Bigger Bang.
The band convened in New York in late April for a week of rehearsals, marking the first time they'd played together since the final night of their A Bigger Bang tour in 2007.
"It's all very hush-hush," guitarist Keith Richards said. "I'm going over to London for a bit, so I'll find out more then."
Asked about whether the rock legends would cut another record, Richards said: "We're going to talk about that in July and see. I mean, I'd love to get some tracks down and see what songs we've got. And that goes along with part of getting the band back together and getting things moving. So I'd love to cut some tracks, yeah."
Later this year, The Rolling Stones will release a documentary feature that covers their 50-year career in music. The band is executive producing the yet-to-be-titled project and filmmaker Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture) is directing.
