Several British media are reporting that THE ROLLING STONES will call it quits after a doing a limited number of shows in AMERICA and the U.K. THE DAILY MIRROR reports that the band's final gig is expected to be at next year's GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL in Southwest ENGLAND.
MICK JAGGER, 68, KEITH RICHARDS, 68, RONNIE WOOD, 65 and CHARLIE WATTS, 71, were expected to tour this year for their 50th anniversary, but they canceled it due to lingering effects of KEITH RICHARD's head injury, which he suffered while in FIJI in 2006. Now, instead of a full-on world tour, the band will only do "a number of shows across the U.K. and AMERICA."
"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," a source told THE MIRROR. "It's a case of now or never, and obviously GLASTONBURY is the most important festival on the circuit."
