They're Still Rolling

Rolling Stones

Their first tour started July 12, 1962... over 50 years ago. The Rolling Stones annouced they will perform two concerts in London and two near New York as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations and lead singer Mick Jagger hinted there could be more gigs to come.

Some have asked how long can they keep going?  Mick Jagger is 69, Keith Richards is 68...

And they’ve just released a new single:  Doom and Gloom

The band's last world tour was "A Bigger Bang," which went on for two years and  It earned around $558 million, making it the second-highest grossing tour in history behind U2's "360 Tour," and demand for tickets to the 2012 concerts is likely to be high. 

"The Rolling Stones are a global phenomenon -- and one of the last supergroups still performing with a full lineup.”

Tickets to the London shows go on sale on the morning of Oct. 19 and can be purchased on and several other websites. Those for the U.S. concerts will be available from Oct. 26. See the video announcement:

When do you think they should stop touring? Aren’t they too old yet?
