Emily Eavis has said she will do her best to get The Rolling Stones to headline Glastonbury 2013.

The rock legends, who will play two shows at London's O2 Arena on November 25 and 29 to mark their 50th anniversary, have never played the Worthy Farm festival.

When asked by NME if The Rolling Stones would happen next year, organiser Emily Eavis said: "We’d obviously like that to happen, we’ve always been quite open about that, whether or not it does, I cannot say."

She added: "I could not tell you now whether it’s going to happen. But we would love it to happen next year, we feel like if it’s going to happen, it’s got to happen next year. So, you know, we’d love for it to happen, so we’ll try our best – I’ll let you know how we get on."

Last week, it was reported that Michael Eavis is "desperate" to get the band to play the Pyramid stage.

Earlier this month (October 11), the band debuted a new track titled 'Doom And Gloom'. A hard-rocking, bluesy number, the songs recalls the likes of 'Gimme Shelter' and 'Honky Tonk Women'. "All I hear is doom and gloom, all is darkness in my room," say the lyrics – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

Recorded in Paris and produced by Don Was, 'Doom and Gloom' is one of two brand new songs taken from the forthcoming hits collection 'GRRR!', which will be released on November 12. The other new track, titled 'One More Shot', is still under wraps, but 'Doom And Gloom' is available to buy now.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (October 19). To check the availability of Rolling Stones tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
