We know, it's only rock 'n' roll but we like it just SO much that the question begs an answer: Will The Best Damn Band in the World launch a 50th anniversary tour next year?
Singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards plan to convene sometime this month to decide how to commemorate that monumental milestone, according to - of all sources - Rolling Stone magazine. The most recent time Mick and the Boys performed was in London in 2007 to close the $558-million grossing A Bigger Bang tour. One promoter that has reached out with interest is Live Nation Entertainment ( LYV ).
Keith says this is no time to hang fire. Nor to have no expectations. Can we get what we need?
"I don't see why in the world the Stones can't put together some kind of show next year," Richards told the publication. "I'd almost count on it. It doesn't have to be the whole spectacle [expletive for male cow's fecal detritus], but we've got to find our own way through this."
Perhaps we'll be sittin' on a fence while they ponder though it might be time to rally the hard-working people, the good and the evil and the common foot soldier.
Earlier this month, Keith and Mick committed to honor blues legend Hubert Sumlin, guitarist for Howlin' Wolf, who died December 4 at age 80, according to The New York Times. They covered the costs of the funeral service and burial for one of their musical inspirations.
