They'd maybe have been doing that for years by now...if only they hadn't remained so bloody popular. [And a few folks around here might have been happier with that.]

It's something I've perhaps repeated too often on these pages... but in some respects the Stones really are victims of their own success.

...and didn't Keith once say that the only problem with being "the greatest Rock n Roll band in the world" is that you have to keep being it

I have been/ am a huge fan since 1965 and traveled all over Australia whenever they tour down here. SAT ON THE EDGE of the stage at The Enmore Sydney Licks show in 2003. Front row Adelaide in 2014. Saw them in LA in 75. First date with my ,still, wife at the WACA in Perth in 1973.

I LOVE THE STONES. They've provided me with the soundtrack to my life and I've just hit 65.

But, if they cannot get a new album out of new material this year, and persist in playing a golden oldies show night in, night out, they should either take up a residency in Vegas (and I HATE that sort of thing - to me that's a circus act), or they should just retire. And IT PAINS ME TO SAY THAT. I rather they went out gracefully and with dignity, than to just peter out.

No chance: Pete Townshend once asked the Stones NOT to get out gracefully. "It wouldn't suit you".
For the pessimists: Maybe Mick already announced the title of the next tour, following No Filter, many decades ago during a concert in Germany (?):
"Let's get the f*ck out of here".

It ain't over until the new album comes out in 2022, and even then I wouldn't bet on them calling it quits...they might have another album in 2026.
Maybe a mini-tour of the US in 2022, and maybe a 10 night residency over a two month period at Royal Albert Hall in 2026...The Grand Farewell.
The reality is, no one knows.

We don’t know what will happen after the end of the tour, we’re trying to finish the new album”
“Well, I always enjoy [touring], says Mick Jagger, it’s always fun. You do a lot of repeats of places you’ve played, but I always enjoy going to somewhere, I’ve never been to Burl’s Creek. There’s quite often festivals there.”

“So many countries we haven’t played. We’ve only been to India once, we’ve only been to Africa once, so most of the time we stay on the tried and true, the same as everybody else. There’s lots of places on the planet we haven’t played. It doesn’t stop me from going there, but playing there is another thing.”

He said regarding touring at his age, “I don’t do it all the time, [like]12 months a year. When you’re young, that’s what you do. [Today I] spend three or four months on the road in a year and that seems to be quite a good balance. Even after the surgery, i feel quite the same as always”

~~

“We don’t know what will happen after the tour, we’re trying to finish the new album, maybe we’ll make it and I think it will definitely be the last of the Stones, so we’re trying to do a good job.

Keith, if it was for him, would always be on tour, like Dylan, but then he too gets tired. He often says it’s his last tour, but I have doubts about it. It is possible that if we don’t other big tours, we could perform in some spot festivals, as happened with Desert Trip, we’ll see”

They’ll carry-on until health dictates they can no-longer do so. I don’t believe they’ll announce the end ‘officially’ until one of them passes away.

There is a thread called "new stones album in 2019" with 363 pages. Now yer talking about next year. There`s a monumental disappointment embedded to this, as far as I can see.

Their live act is also predicated on a raucous, high-energy physical performance.

Mick and Keith were almost co-frontmen post '89, but now it's all down to Mick maintaining a level of physicality almost unheard of for a man his age.

Ronnie has energy but it's not nearly like watching Keith at his animated peak 1989-2005.

There has been a rumour about South America. But that's it.

Who knows. I would love Asia.

Re: Is 2019 last of THE ROLLING STONES

According to Ronnie's new Inteview:
(The Sun, June 23 2019) [www.thesun.co.uk]

“We are at our peak health-wise when we’re playing together. Charlie, visibly perks up when we start playing together, he physically looks and feels better, we all do.

“It’s like a medicine. We don’t like to stop working. All being well, there’ll be a new album and a new tour.

“It will be great — but let’s get this one over with first.”

Yes, this and the next 5 tours. Isn't that what Mick said at the B2B tour press conference?

It is exactly what was said and I remember thinking how ridiculous the comment was at the time.... I was wrong... Mick was right.

UNREAL.

I am very pleased that I was wrong!

Reading Ronnie, all being well since 2005 so, and their last studio album.

Well, that's interesting. I don't anyone supposed they were going to keep churning out new material, but it's the first time any of them has said anything in so many words about wrapping it up.

Bill Wyman said someday they'll be sitting on stools playing the blues, so maybe he's right
yes..well..I've seen that comment many times and used to believe it (or hope it would come true) but since they have no interest in including not even one blues number from B&L in the set....it was dropped no?...then the "Blues on Stools" scenario seems highly unlikely. I fervently hope I will be pleasantly proved wrong.

All this talk of them being a working band. I just don't see it.

To me they are not a working band.

Or even, if we are totally honest, a touring band, anymore.

They are a show band.

They play, essentially, the same show, 14 times a year. 14x2 hours.. 28 hours work, plus a couple of odd hours sound checking and perhaps a real week of rehearsals. That's not a working band.

I get their age. I ain't far off their age. I go to work every day for a 42 hour week. That's their annual output, as, from what I tell, they hardly spend anytime working in the studio together anymore...

No reason why they can't carry on after this tour, pending good health (my mouth to God's ears).

Finish the new album which I feel will be great!

Then see what they want to do next.

Maybe tour, maybe a residency like others (Aerosmith, Elton John, etc.), record more solo LP's, it's all good.

It was actually Keith. He said in the BtB press conference in New York in August 1997. 22 years ago! And even he was wrong because they've done much more than 5 tours since then thumbs up.

I don't really need predictable (such as I Feel Like Playing) or boring solo albums (like Crosseyed Heart) which are far worse than Ronnie's albums between 1974 and 1992 or Keith's albums from 1988/1992.

Mick said 'We'll see ya next year" after Satisfaction in whatever town that was in on STILL LIFE.

That was bullshit. They're fantastic at creating the illusion, visually or audioally, of keeping on.

Never stop? Ha.

Gonna stop. Soon. Think of the headlines the week Mick dies: JAGGER FINALLY STOPPED.

I know what you mean. But touring a la The Rolling Stones in 2019 is not a 5 hours per rehearsal/tour week job I believe. On the other hand, yes, you're probably underpaid compared with the Stones.
