Keith Richards has said a first appearance at Glastonbury next year is an ‘interesting proposition’ for The Rolling Stones after revealing their 50th anniversary touring commitments are unlikely to be restricted to only the recently announced quartet of London and New Jersey gigs.
Speaking to BBC 6Music, the guitarist confirmed further plans for 2013 ‘are on’, and that Glastonbury is a distinct possibility for next year should the weather hold up.
“Nobody has given us a heads up but this band isn’t going to wind up with four shows,” he remarked. “Next year looks like it is on.”
“On a good day if the weather’s fine that’s an interesting proposition,” he added on Glastonbury. “The band wants to get these four gigs under their belt and then think about next year after that. Anything is possible with this band.”
Richards also denied that the legendary band are out to overprice fans who purchase tickets for their 50th anniversary concerts, with deluxe packages for the London O2 Arena gigs costing as much as £900.
“I haven’t looked at the figures – numbers can get greatly exaggerated,” he continued. “I just wanna do some shows and I don’t want to charge over the bloody top. I’m a bit out of the loop with showbiz. £16m sounds about right to us.”
