Stones To Retire After 'Farewell' Tour?

The ROLLING STONES' next tour will reportedly be the band's last - the veteran rockers are said to be eyeing retirement after one final trek.
The legendary group is set to conclude a career of more than 50 years on the stage with a series of stadium concerts across the world, which will mark their final live shows together, according to Britain's The Sun.
The newspaper reports the musicians are in talks with executives at concert promotion company Live Nation to put on the gigs next year (11).
A source tells the publication, "They're likely to perform in stadiums. It's almost certainly the last full-scale world tour. The band realise that age is creeping up on them. They want to bow out on top of their game, and not short-change fans."
The Gimme Shelter hitmakers previously launched a 'farewell' trek in 1971, before they relocated from their native Britain for tax purposes, and they gave up touring for eight years between 1982 and 1990.

Actually, they did not give up touring from 1982-1990. I can say that because I saw them on Friday and Saturday nights, November 10th and 11th of 1989 in Dallas, TX at the Cotton Bowl. I'm just sayin'...

I don't think they'll be retiring "at the top of their game." The top of their game came and went a couple of decades ago.

You've reached the end of the road, Grand-dads. Good luck sitting still. Watching grass grow isn't what it's cracked up to be.
