In honor of the band’s 50th anniversary, the Rolling Stones will play their first shows since 2007 later this year, Rolling Stone reports.
The band is planning two shows at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center as well as a reported two performances at London’s O2 Arena.
The legendary rockers have also apparently recorded new music for an upcoming box set in France last week. “Had fun in the Paris studio this week!” Mick Jagger tweeted following the session.
“I’d love to get some tracks down and see what songs we’ve got,” Keith Richards told RS before the recording sessions. “And that goes along with part of getting the band back together and getting things moving. So I’d love to cut some tracks, yeah.”
Footage from the band’s recent New York rehearsal will appear in the documentary Crossfire Hurricane. The film, directed by Brett Morgen, chronicles the band’s 50-year career and will premiere on HBO on Nov. 15.
Olympics closing ceremony could feature the Stones, Elton John… and, of course, the Spice Girls
