The Rolling Stones will return to playing live with live dates in America set to take place this summer reports NME.
Guitarist Ronnie Wood let the information slip while speaking to Billboard. The band have yet to complete their 50 & Counting world tour and were forced to postpone some dates towards the end of last year when Mick Jagger’s partner L’Wren Scott committed suicide in March 2014.
Quizzed on the possibility of seeing the band live again, Wood is quoted as saying: “Yeah, we had a meeting in New York with the boys and we’re gonna come [to] North America again in the summer.”
No dates or cities have yet been confirmed for the gigs, which will be the band’s first North American shows since the death of saxophone player Bobby Keys in 2014, who has since been replaced by Karl Denson. Keys died in December aged 70 following an ongoing battle with cirrhosis of the liver.
