Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards said the band had met to “practice for two times” ahead of the anniversary celebration of the 50th. Rumors of the existence of a tour to celebrate the golden anniversary of a British band that has been spread over several years.
However, Richards did not say when the quartet will again appear in public. “There are some things that are in the process, I think it will happen,” he said on the BBC. “But when? I can not say it.” “We think of the idea and have been training two times, we get together again and it feels very nice.”
Richards spoke on BBC arts editor Will Gompertz one day before the band even half a century old. They first performed at London’s Marquee Club on July 12, 1962 and gave birth to their first hit song, recycled version of the Chuck Berry song Come On, 12 months later. “We’re going to die with dignity.”
The photo exhibition marking the band’s long career will be launched at Somerset House London, Thursday (07/12/2012). Speaking about the photos, which includes photographs from media reports, concert and studio photographs, the guitarist says he felt “weird” moments recalls early days of the Rolling Stones.
“It’s incredible, when I saw most of the photos that I thought, ‘where the cameraman?’ I do not remember seeing them there, “he said. He added he wanted the band is still there as long as possible, “Maybe there’s hope this old dog’s life, we will die gracefully, and elegantly drunk.”
“Sometimes we feel music is hard work and we wonder why we do it, but regardless of these moments, this journey is extraordinary.” Last world tour Stones, A Bigger Bang, was witnessed by 4.5 million people in 32 countries for two years before ending in London in 2007.
With ticket sales reached 558 million U.S. dollars, the tour became the most lucrative tour of all time, until defeated by the group U2 360 tour.
