Rolling Stones in 1978
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have confirmed that there will not be a 50th Anniversary Rolling Stones Tour in 2012. The rock legends said that they aren’t quite prepared to go globe-trotting, according to Rolling Stone.

However, it appears that the Glimmer Twins have their sights set on something in 2013. Richards suggests that a tour next year is actually more appropriate for the 50th anniversary: “The Stones always really considered ’63 to be 50 years, because Charlie [Watts] didn’t actually join until January,” Richards said. “We look upon 2012 as sort of the year of conception, but the birth is next year.”

Richards and Jagger also talked about a December jam session in January that reunited them with former Stone Bill Wyman: “We played a lot of blues and outtakes of Some Girls and things like that,” Jagger said. “It went very well.”

Keef added: “We’re back in touch, which is great, because I hadn’t really spoken to him for years.” Richards also theorized that Wyman may rejoin the Stones on their 2013 tour. “I think he’s up for it. We talked about it. I’ll let you know when I can.”
