The Rolling Stones Deny Retirement And Glastonbury 2013 Plans
The Rolling Stones have denied reports they will retire next year with a headline slot at Glastonbury. It was reported "sources" close to the band had indicated that their Glastonbury appearance will be their final date in a "handful" of shows in the UK and USA. It was also suggested that, as it is part of the group's 50-year anniversary, it will be seen as a good time to call it a day on live performances. Representatives for the band insisted there is no truth in the claim, which appeared in the Sunday Mirror on June 17 and they would not be playing at Worthy Farm next summer. The veteran four-piece have never played Glastonbury before. A spokesman for the festival told The Guardian there have been no conversations as yet. He added: "Everybody in the year off thinks they've come up with the perfect Glastonbury lineup. But at the moment there isn't anything to confirm or deny." Meanwhile, a new photography exhibition called "The Rolling Stones: 50" is set to open at London's Somerset House this summer. The free exhibition will be held from July 13-August 27 in the landmark venue's East Wing Galleries and will coincide with the release of a book of the same time. The book will feature 700 shots and words from the band on their history, and will hit UK bookshops on July 12. The exhibition will show a host of unseen and rare photographs, including more than 70 prints, with live shots, studio images and reportage pictures on display as well as contact sheets and negative strips. Thanks for the report to NME.com.
