Rolling Stones Still Performing After 50 Years

Posted on January 24, 2013 by


The Rolling Stones, the “world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band,” just do not know how to stop.

Founded in 1962, the band is now fifty years old, and what better way to celebrate half a decade of music than with another tour.

Aptly titled The Fifty and Counting Tour, this is their first tour since 2007 when the A Bigger Bang Tour ended.

Despite being kept in the dark for quite some time and Mick Jagger even denying the tour, fans predicted it, and their hopes came true.

Despite the landmark this tour represents, it was brutally short, lasting barely a month.

The event began in London on November 25 and ending December 15 with a huge bash featuring Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, the Black Keys, John Mayer, and others.

In celebration of the landmark, The Stones released a compilation album on 12 November of many of their greatest hits on five different formats, each of which has varying song content and extras.

All editions feature “Doom and Gloom” and “One More Shot,” two brand-new songs recorded in celebration of their 50th Anniversary.

Now the tour is over, and no more tours have been confirmed or even mentioned. The Stones, with their apparent immunity to aging or death, are not done performing just yet and have a few venues left in America and Canada.

“I don’t really know any of their songs, but I think that you’re never too old to play music, so if they want to keep releasing music and touring, then so be it,” Anthony Parzanese said.

“I believe that if they sound old–more importantly, if their vocals sound old–then they should not be touring,” Sarah Kilgore said.
