LONDON (CelebrityAcces MediaWire) — After 50 years, the iconic rock band the Rolling Stones are preparing to take their final bow.
According to the British newspaper The Sun, the band is currently in negotiations with Live Nation over a final world tour in 2011, that will mark the band's 50th anniversary.
"They're likely to perform in stadiums. It's almost certainly the last full-scale world tour," an unnamed source told The Sun. "The band realise that age is creeping up on them. They want to bow out on top of their game, and not short-change their fans."
The Stones have been a major force in rock music, with more than 200 million albums sold and three of the top ten highest grossing tours under their belts.
This won't be the band's first 'farewell tour'. In 1971, the Stones did a farewell tour of Britain before leaving the country to avoid a high tax rate. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
