The Rolling Stones will bow out from live performances with a headline slot at next year’s Glastonbury festival, according to a tabloid report. The band have never played the Worthy Farm festival but a rumour suggests that they will be heading there for their first and only time next summer, according to the Sunday Mirror.
The tabloid newspaper reports that “sources” close to the band have indicated that their Glastonbury appearance will be their final date in a “handful” of shows in the UK and USA in 2012. It is also suggested that, as it is part of the group’s 50-year anniversary, it will be seen as a good time to call it a day on live performances. One source revealed:
“All four members have agreed that next year is the right time to have one final hurrah and put on the gig of their lives. It’s a case of now or never, and obviously Glastonbury is the most important festival on the circuit. Everybody’s incredibly excited… it’s a final bow.”
Obviously, more details will be revealed in due course and we hope to bring them to you as quick as we can.
