The Rolling Stones are to go on a world tour in 2010.

The rock veterans - whose last tour finished in 2007 and earned them more than £300 million - are planning a mammoth run of shows next year, according to Ronnie Wood's cocktail waitress girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova.

The 20-year-old Russian waitress - who has been dating 62-year-old Ronnie since he walked out on his 23-year marriage to Jo Wood in July 2008 - has been a little indiscreet in letting the world know about their plans.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "She's not supposed to talk about it, things haven't been finalised but she couldn't resist telling a few friends."

Ronnie recently admitted he had been in touch with his Rolling Stones bandmates Sir Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts and insisted everything was "great" between them, despite rumours he could be fired from the group because of his parting lifestyle.
