The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones will mark their 50th Anniversary by playing their first live shows in five years this fall.

“You will definitely be seeing us all together soon,” Mick Jagger told the Evening Standard on Thursday at a London exhibition of photographs taken throughout their career. “It’s been great fun being back together and there are a lot of memories in here. I can’t believe it’s been 50 years. We’ve been hanging out together, seeing quite a bit of each other and we want to do some gigs.”

When asked by the Standard when the band would next be performing live together, Jagger replied with a wink: “In the autumn.”

Thursday marked the 50th anniversary of the band’s first show at London’s Marquee Club in 1962; the band marked the occasion by appearing at “Rolling Stones 50, A Photographic Exhibition,” at Somerset House.

“This is like walking into a room full of memories,” said Keith Richards, who was a little more tight-lipped about touring than Sir Mick. “It’s great being back with the guys, but I can’t tell you anything about any shows. My lips are sealed.”

The band met for rehearsals in New York, where they were joined by former bassist Bill Wyman, but have been tight-lipped about their touring plans.
