The Rolling Stones are Considering Offers for a Full Tour
Posted January 4th, 2013 @ 10:21am

The Rolling Stones just finished five concerts for their 50th anniversary, but they are weighing offers for a full tour.  Front-man Mick Jagger tells Rolling Stone:

"There have been quite a few offers...We'll announce it when we've figured it out...Really, all you're going to have to do is wait for an announcement."

Jagger goes on to say, "It would be dopey to bring things up to this level and say, 'Well, that's that, 50 years, bye-bye."

The five shows featured a ton of guests ranging from ex-Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, to appearances from pop stars like Lady Gaga.  Other guests included John Mayer, Gary Clark Jr. and The Black Keys.  The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney talked about how friendly and down-to-earth the Stones are.  He also adds, "There was nothing nostalgic about them."

On the band's lack of nostalgia, Keith Richards says, "Nostalgia is not this band's strong point.  It was almost kicking and screaming to get us to this 50-year thing."
