rolling stones The Rolling Stones will not tour in 2012

The Rolling Stones celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2012, but the band’s next tour likely won’t come until the following year. As guitarist Keith Richard revealed to Rolling Stone, ”we’re just not ready… 2013 is the new goal. I have a feeling that’s more realistic.”

Richards did not offer a reasoning for the decision, but his health may be the determining factor. Citing an industry insider, Rolling Stone reports that Richards’ health “has raised questions about his ability to make it through a worldwide tour… and the band may avoid traveling in favor of camping out in major cities for multinight runs in arenas, similar to Prince’s recent stands in New York and Los Angeles.”

Rolling Stone adds that the band asked for proposals from promoters AEG, Live Nation and longtime Stones promoter Michael Cohl.

Thankx Mick, Keith, Ron and Charlie!… thanx for just for “beign there” —we know you do this just for us— we´ll wait no matter it is a new record, film or fest celebrating what no other rocker has done before…. a 50th anniversary of a ROCK N ROLL BAND. Half a century   —we´ll wait!
GOD BLESS YA!
