The Stones to keep on Rolling

Truth rating: 1

By Michael Lewittes


“Stones to stop Rolling,” reads an “exclusive” in The Sun, which goes on to claim, “The Rolling Stones are set to finally bow out after 50 years in music – with a giant farewell tour.”

According to the tabloid, a world tour is set to run through 2012 – the band’s 50th anniversary – and then Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards, and Mick Jagger will “call it a day.”

The Sun reports, “They are in talks with promoters Live Nation about the tour,” and they “realise that age is creeping up on them. They want to bow out on top of their game.”

Not on top of its game, however, is The Sun.

An insider tells Gossip Cop that Live Nation is among several promoters that have approached the Stones about hitting the road again.

Regardless of who promotes the tour, a rep for the band assures Gossip Cop, “No, they are not retiring.”
