Rolling Stones 2010 Tour Rumours

Ronnie Wood claims it could happen

Rock icons The Rolling Stones could be set to return to active touring duty next year, guitarist Ronnie Wood has claimed.

The Rolling Stones are one of the biggest live attractions on the planet. The band have evolved into a rigourous touring machine, entertaining huge crowds that span generations.

With the bulk of their audience born after their first single ‘Come On’ was released, The Rolling Stones are truly the evergreen veterans of rock. In fact the group even hold the attendance record for the planet’s biggest ever show, with more than one million people watching a gig in Brazil.

Since the release of the Scorcese directed concert film ‘Shine A Light’ in 2008 the band have been inactive, with the members indulging in some pass times. Keith Richards appeared in an instalment of ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ while Ronnie Wood hooked up with some old friends.

Due to tour next year with The Faces, Ronnie Wood recently appeared onstage with the 70s rockers at a charity concert in London.

Set to hook up with original singer Rod Stewart next year, the guitarist has now revealed that The Rolling Stones could be set to join them on the live circuit.

BBC 6Music asked Ronnie Wood if all was well with the iconic group. “It’s all very good. I saw Mick (Jagger) and Charlie (Watts) last week. Everything is great.”

Asked if he was eager to head back out on the road again, Ronnie Wood replied: “Yeah, well I just did that with The Faces, but I’m ready to rock.”

The Rolling Stones have yet to confirm any tour dates in 2010.
