Mick Jagger has said that he has no plans to retire any time soon.

The Rolling Stones frontman has endured a tough year in 2014 with his partner, L'Wren Scott, committing suicide in March. However, his band have not stopped touring and recently returned to the stage at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark.

Speaking to The Telegraph in a new interview, Jagger says that he has never considered retirement. "I don't know when I'm going to stop, but I'm still going now," he states.

The frontman continued: "It's a very energising thing. You never get bored. It's very irresponsible, because you don't have to worry. You get to one place and you know you're not going to stay there more than a couple of days. Good, bad or indifferent, you're on to the next place."

"I get very emotionally involved with the whole thing. I'm very passionate about touring. Every time you go onstage it's a very exciting moment, because you never know what's going to happen. It's always different. A lot of unexpected things happen. Each show is a new event."

Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts recently made headlines after they filmed a sketch mocking The Rolling Stones as part of Monty Python's press conference ahead of their Monty Python Live (Mostly) shows.

The Australian and New Zealand leg of the On Fire tour is due to kick off on October 25 in Adelaide, Australia. The band were originally scheduled to perform there in March, but were forced to postpone the dates due to the unexpected death of Jagger's long-term girlfriend, L'Wren Scott.
