"Watch this space," says veteran guitarist
Ronnie Wood has hinted during a question and answer session with fans on Twitter that The Rolling Stones will play more live shows this year.
The guitarist, who recently performed alongside Johnny Marr at the NME Awards, took part in an #askRonnie chat with his fans on Sunday (March 10) and revealed among other things that he felt the band had not performed enough live shows in 2012. The Rolling Stones played four gigs, two in New York and two at London’s O2 Arena, at the end of last year but Wood made it clear that he is keen to perform again with his bandmates. Asked by a fan what it was like getting back onstage for the four shows, Wood replied: “Not enough. Get ready for more.” Elsewhere, Wood wrote “Watch this space” when quizzed on the possibility of more live dates being announced.
The Rolling Stones are rumoured to be performing a headline slot at this year’s Glastonbury festival. Mick Jagger himself has hinted at the possibility of seeing the band on the Pyramid Stage in June during an interview with NME. Meanwhile, in a recent interview, Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno claimed the Stones are confirmed to perform. Last week the band’s chief songwriter was talking about Kasabian’s headline slot at Hard Rock Calling, which takes place the same June weekend as Glastonbury and said: “I hope ours is the most talked about performance of the weekend, but that would be a miracle because The Rolling Stones are playing Glastonbury.”
