Update: The Guardian spoke to a rep for the band…
The Rolling Stones have denied that they will be bowing out next year with a headline show at Glastonbury festival.
They also said the band would not be playing the festival.
Better late than never! Full story at the Mirror:
The Rolling Stones are set to bow out in sensational style… with a farewell gig at Glastonbury next year.
The band, whose four members have a combined age of 272, will play the coveted Sunday night headline slot on the Pyramid stage after talks with festival organisers Michael and Emily Eavis.
Sources close to the band indicate that the appearance is expected to be the final date in a “handful” of shows in Britain and America in 2013 – which they see as their true 50th anniversary – before they finally retire from the live arena.
