As I  predicted in early March of 2011, the Stones will hit the road this year with a 50 year anniversary tour. I also predicted this will be the last official tour for the Rolling Stones, and I stand by that. This should be a good year for concert goers with so many groups on tour, however, the Stones tour will break all attendance and box office records as well.

The Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood has hinted that the band are "on the verge" of touring this year.

Rumors have long circulated that the legendary rock' n' roll band will play shows this year to mark their 50th anniversary, with drummer Charlie Watts the most recent member of the group to talk up the possibility of a half-centenary celebration.

Now, in an interview with the Radio Times, Wood has also said he wants the band to play together and, when asked if he and his bandmates would be hitting the road, he replied:

Be lovely, wouldn't it? That's what we're on the verge of. I dunno what the hell is gonna happen yet but we all feel we owe it to ourselves and to the people to do something.
