Rolling Stones to Start Farewell World Tour Next Year, Sun Says
The band, formed in 1962, is in talks with promoters Live Nation about the tour, the newspaper said. The performances are set to last into 2012, it said.
The four members of the Rolling Stones will have a combined age of 268 when the tour begins, with drummer Charlie Watts turning 70 while on the road, the Sun said. Bandmate Ronnie Wood is 63, while Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are both 66, it reported.
They performed a farewell tour of Britain in 1971 before leaving the country to avoid taxes, the Sun said. The Rolling Stones have sold more than 200 million albums, the paper said.
