Rolling Stones' Keith Richards: 'We've Booked Shows In London And New York'
Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has revealed that the band have been booked to play live shows in London and New York. The legendary rockers had long been rumoured to be playing live again this year to celebrate their 50th anniversary, with frontman Mick Jagger claiming in July that they were planning on sharing a stage together this autumn. Despite speculation, the band turned down the chance to play the Olympics opening ceremony and denied reports they would play two shows at London's O2 Arena this November. But in an interview with Q magazine, Richards let slip that they had booked a run of shows in both the UK and the US although he didn't reveal when the dates would take place. He said: "We've got some shows in London, I believe, and in New York, but I really can't talk about any of that at the moment. They've put the gag on me on this. You can hint!" Richards also said the band's rehearsals were going from strength to strength, adding: "Everybody relies upon their instincts, especially once you start working regularly together again. Because it pulls all the bits and pieces together, which when you're not working and playing with the guys, dissipates, obviously; you're not having that immediate contact?? But kind of two days of hanging around with the guys again, a certain demon energy takes over and you wonder where it's coming from!" The Rolling Stones will release a brand new Greatest Hits compilation in November titled "GRRR!". The collection, which is being released to coincide with the band's 50th anniversary, will feature two brand new songs, "Doom And Gloom" and "One More Shot", which were recorded in Paris last month. This is the first new material the band have recorded since their 2005 album "A Bigger Bang". Thanks to NME for the report.
