The Rolling Stones Do Not Plan to Retire in 2013, Despite Rumors
It was recently reported by numerous outlets, including The Mirror, that the Rolling Stones would be retiring after performing at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival. However, representatives of the band, which has been playing for 50 years, denied that not only would the band continue to perform, but they would not be appearing at Glastonbury.
According to The Guardian:
Glastonbury’s press office said this morning that speculation about the Stones playing the festival is nothing new, since they are one of the few legends never to have appeared, but there have been no conversations as yet. A spokesman said: “Everybody in the year off thinks they’ve come up with the perfect Glastonbury lineup. But at the moment there isn’t anything to confirm or deny.”
