The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger and Keith Richards will meet in December to discuss plans for the band's 50th anniversary, according to reports.

Rolling Stone claims that the pair are set to put aside their recent squabbles and decide how to celebrate the landmark anniversary, with sources close to the band revealing that concert promoters including AEG Live and Live Nation had been in touch regarding the rights to a world tour.

Richards, who recently confirmed that the band were planning on rehearsing together in London this month, said:

I don't see why in the world the Stones can't put together some kind of show next year. I'd almost count on it. It doesn't have to be the whole spectacle bullshit again, but we've got to find out own way through this.

Meanwhile, Jagger – who had seemingly distanced himself from rumours of a reunion show – said: "It is quite amazing when you think about it. Anything is possible."

However, Stones' member Ronnie Wood insisted that Richards and Jagger would have to resolve their bad blood before any plans were confirmed.

Speaking about the relationship between the singer and guitarist, who reportedly fell out when Richards mocked the size of the singer's manhood in his million-selling autobiography Life, Wood said: "I think there's a healing process waiting to take place. I think it's happening now as we speak, but it has to be resolved.

"Something has to be resolved there. They have to come to terms with going on a working basis, which Charlie and I will help make happen. Wish me luck," he added.

The Rolling Stones played their first ever gig in London on July 12, 1962. Earlier this week, the band reissued their seminal 1978 album 'Some Girls'.
