Should the Stones tour again?

Should they? I'm a huge fan so I'd like to say yes, but I hope they don't wait so long that age has a negative effect on their chops. I thought they were brilliant on the Bigger Bang Tour, but Keith looks like he's aged a lot since then. Maybe just because he's not bothering to dye his hair any more, lol. He's admitted that he has to get his chops back after not playing much while writing his book. Seen recent footage of Ron with The No-Rod Faces and he seems in good form. Seen footage of Charlie with his jazz band and he seems as good as ever. And of course videos of Mick with Superheavy and at the Grammy Awards show that he's lost nothing. I'd like them to tour but hope they do it soon as age creeps up fast. Saw recent footage of Chuck Berry playing at age 85 and I was embarrased for the man. He can hardly play his classic riffs any more. I never want to have to see Keith like that.

The Stones should not end up as caricatures.

It's entirely up to them. I'm very happy with 50 years of music and touring. The music will live on; my memories are wonderful. I'm grateful to this band for all they've done.

Can't we, the fans, let the decision be theirs and theirs alone?

I teach English as a second language in a high school and I'm thinking about using this forum to teach the use of modals...

Will the Stones tour next year?
Should the Stones tour next year?
Can they tour again?
Could it be their last tour next year?

I propose that there be one new thread per day on this topic, just in case anyone changes their opinion from one day to the next.

Kind of surprised at the ho-hum response to this thread, but I'm new here so what do I know? I just thought Stones fans would be a little more enthusiastic about the subject. I guess it's already been discussed to death before I got here...

.... hundreds of times. Strangely enough, no consensus has ever been reached!

no tour as long as the world economy sucks so much, so I think we've seen the last of the Stones

They need to do something different, not a big stadium with greatest hits. I think arenas are the way to go for sure and do something unique with set list. A residency in major cities would be OK as well: NY, LA, Vegas, Boston, SFO, London, Paris, Frankfurt...

I've been reflecting on this during my absence from this forum. And I still think the answer is no.

Jagger should go karaoke with a Brussels'73 backing track, playing small venues.

This really is a good question. I love the Stones, but the point is can they still deliver. I agree Mick is still ready. he rocked at the grammy's. Though I haven't seen Ron or Charlie, the reports have been good. I truthfully am wondering if Keith can still do it. Last year with the Exile reissue, when on Jimmy Fallon's show, Fallon asked him to play. He said no, because he hasn't picked up a guitar for a long time. The Keith we all know & love practically slept with his guitar. Book or no book, if he's not playing guitar, which he claims is his love, is it because he can't anymore with his arthritis? I would hate a tour where Blondie is playing his parts and Keith is just going thru the motions.

I really hope they can, as I still get excited for each tour.

The question should really be: Should we still pay that money to see them again?

Of course, they should. Charlie is in an outstanding shape for having seen him in Paris just 1 1/2 month ago. Mick seems to be still Mick : voice and shape. Keith, well, I don't know. Just guess he can still play his warhorses with enthiusasm during an accomated plan of dates.
