This Could be the Last Time -- But it Probably Won't

“Rolling 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.”

Heck, I can remember when the rumors were circulating 30 years ago that their 1981 tour would be their last — but of course, that was back when 40 was considered a ripe old age for rock musicians.
