Esau. Posted July 24, 2010 Report Share Posted July 24, 2010 I checked their site and there isn't any info about this on there, and none of the major news groups seem to be reporting it (yet) so I guess we'll see. Regardless, 50 years..wow. What a run.Stones To Retire After 'Farewell' Tour?The ROLLING STONES' next tour will reportedly be the band's last - the veteran rockers are said to be eyeing retirement after one final trek.The legendary group is set to conclude a career of more than 50 years on the stage with a series of stadium concerts across the world, which will mark their final live shows together, according to Britain's The Sun.The newspaper reports the musicians are in talks with executives at concert promotion company Live Nation to put on the gigs next year (11).A source tells the publication, "They're likely to perform in stadiums. It's almost certainly the last full-scale world tour. The band realise that age is creeping up on them. They want to bow out on top of their game, and not short-change fans."The Gimme Shelter hitmakers previously launched a 'farewell' trek in 1971, before they relocated from their native Britain for tax purposes, and they gave up touring for eight years between 1982 and 1990.http://www.contactmusic.com/news.nsf/story/stones-to-retire-after-farewell-tour_1154995 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
