Mick Jagger has suggested that The Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary shows this year will not be their last, and has said he'd love to take the band to Australia.

Asked on the red carpet at the premiere of new Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane earlier this evening (October 18) if they would be heading Down Under, Jagger said: "Not this week! We're going to go and rehearse this week but I hope to go to Australia. I haven’t been there in years."

On the subject of preparations for the upcoming dates in London and New Jersey, the iconic singer added: "Rehearsals are going really well. We've done loads of songs, we're playing well and everyone's sounding good."

Crossfire Hurricane charts the rise of the band through extensive use of archive footage. Jagger said of the band's ongoing success: "Well, it helps to be alive! We're still working and putting out records and all that sort of thing."

Asked if he remembers the early days more vividly than recent times, Jagger smiled: "I remember everything, darling."

The frontman will join his bandmates for two nights at London's O2 Arena on November 25 and 29 to celebrate the Stones' 50th anniversary. They will also be playing two nights at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey in the US on December 13 and 15.
