If I can quote the great Kenny Dalglish: Mibees Ayes, Mibees Naws.

.... I was watching Oprah last week and she got the rapper Jay-Z to get her to rap a bit, a few lines or something....
So, you know, the fat lady has sung...... ("not over till the fat lady sings" for those lads that don't GETZ DA SLANG)....
If it was the last show then these are the last few seconds of them on stage ever. But I don't believe it will be. Photo by SD.
Don't do that Al. Don't say goodbye yet. If you lose faith that they'll be back, they might never. Somebody once said "Lose your dreams, and you will lose your mind". Don't do it man. They WILL be back.Quote
As they have decided against a tour this year, I have to admit, I really do feel we have reached the end of The Rolling Stones as a touring act. Age and health are against them and by the time 2012 comes around, who knows? Would Mick's voice still hold up? Keith's arthritis will only worse - and Ronnie? Will he still be alive, by then?
I have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the shows I have been privileged enough to attend. To witness my heroes in action has been such an unimaginative thrill. I would also like to add that I have enjoyed the company of many fine posters on these here boards and I am going to miss those pre-concert gatherings tremendously.

I knew when I walked out of the 02 that night that it was my last Stones show.
No way.They will do shows for their 50 anniversary.Probably a residency at O2 Arena.Its a long way from been over.
I had the same "final" feeling after the Sunday show. To me, the Thursday show actually blew the 2 other shows away but there were some sentimental moments on the Sunday with so many family members there, Bill Wyman there, and the kids and grand kids doing back-up vocals. I think they were making it thefinal bow even if they may have not have known for sure.
The thing really is...what am I gonna do without them? Hard to imagine a world
without them making music/touring.
