The Rolling Stones are reportedly negotiating with Live Nation to stage one final world tour. The shows will begin in 2011 and finish some time in 2012 - 50 years after the band formed in 1962.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood are all in their sixties. During their almost five decade career they have had numerous hits and album sales of over 200 million.
"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 their fans," said a source.
