The Rolling Stones are planning to tour the United States during the early part of 2013, according to a new report. The dates and venues have not been officially revealed yet, but a source with knowledge of the upcoming concerts has leaked the information. They are also rumored for Glastonbury, but the concerts have yet to be announced by the band.
They have set aside eighteen dates in the U.S., with Seattle and Los Angeles named as two of several west coast stops, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The concert source originally told Rolling Stone magazine of the new tour, saying that the band was planning shows on both coasts in the early part of 2013. The Stones have now been touring for many decades and marked off a 50th anniversary tour last year that was wildly successful in ticket sales.
Mick Jagger and Kieth Richards are each pushing 70 years of age but are not showing any indications of slowing down. They have remained very busy in recent years, recording and touring. Earlier this week Billboard reported that the Stones will likely play at the Glastonbury Festival in England this June. Ronnie Wood is reportedly trying to convince his mates to play the show.
The U.S. tour and the Glastonbury Festival have yet to be announced, but if the reports are true, it will be an intense schedule this year for history's most seasoned rock band.
