Mick Jagger addresses rumours about the end of The Rolling Stones

music news 08/03/2018

Mick Jagger has downplayed rumours that the Stones' upcoming UK tour may be their last.

The Stones recently announced their 'No Filter' tour, heading to a number of UK locations this year and they've had huge demand for tickets.

Recently drummer, Charlie Watts said it wouldn't bother him if the band split up.

Now Mick Jagger has come out saying that calling it quite wasn't currently on the agenda.

“I haven’t really thought about this set of gigs being our last tour, to be honest,” Jagger told The Sunday Post.

"There is going to come a point when we don’t want to do it any more, for whatever reason – but I’m not thinking about that this summer."

Watts told NME that he thought the band might have stopped a lot of times.

"I used to think that at the end of every tour. I’d had enough of it – that was it. But no, not really. I hope [when it ends] that everyone says, ‘that’ll be it’. I’d hate for it to be a bloody big argument. That would be a real sad moment. But to say this is the last show wouldn’t be a particularly sad moment, not to me anyway. I’ll just carry on as I was yesterday or today."

When asked what would end the band, Watts said:  “I think if Mick or Keith retired then it would be. But they could get another drummer, another guitar player. If Daryl didn’t want to do it anymore we’d have a nightmare finding another bass player but Mick and Keith would or could carry on.

“If Mick said ‘I’m retiring’ I don’t know how we’d do a show without him, or Keith.”
