More news has emerged regarding The Rolling Stones' potential plans for celebrating their 50th anniversary. Keith Richards tells Rolling Stone magazine that the band is discussing the possibility of playing one or a few concerts this year to mark the anniversary.
"I'd like to get a couple of shows down and see how it goes," says the guitar legend. "But I'd love it."
Sources inside the Stones camp report that the band also are talking about a 2013 tour.
In April, The Stones began jamming in studios in New York City and Weehawken, New Jersey. Those sessions were filmed for the upcoming 50th anniversary documentary that's being directed by Brett Morgen.
"We're just getting our chops together," says Richards of the rehearsals. "It was like playing in the garage, a maintenance check."
The guitarist also reports that the band members will meet up again next month in the U.K. to further discuss their upcoming plans. "It's all very hush-hush," he explains. "I'm going over to London for a bit, so I'll find out more then."
Richards adds that when The Stones reconvene, some new recording may not be out of the question. "I'd love to get some tracks down and see what songs we've got," he says. "And that goes along with part of getting the band back together and getting things moving."
