Keith Richards has admitted he would ‘love to’ headline Glastonbury next year should the opportunity present itself.
The Rolling Stones are due to wrap up their short run of 2012 50th anniversary gigs in New Jersey this month, but are widely expected to continue the celebrations into next year, with Glastonbury strongly touted as a possibility for the legendary band.
And when asked about the chances of them playing Worthy Farm next year by NME, Richards said:
“That’s a good one. I’m really going to be guilty here of leaving that one up in the air. I mean I’d love to. But look, I don’t know anything about next year at the moment, I really don’t. We’re just getting this year under our belts. But anything’s possible, that’s all I can say about it. But if it could happen, I’d love to.”
Before their headline dates in Newark, the Stones will perform as part of the Superstorm Sandy benefit concert in New York tonight (December 12th).
