Rolling Stones ig­nore trolls telling them to re­tire

Kuwait Times - - Lifestyle -

Ron­nie Wood has vowed to defy trolls who think The Rolling Stones should re­tire from tour­ing. The iconic rock group - com­pleted by Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Char­lie Watts - have been per­form­ing live for more than five decades and will do so un­til they can’t psy­chi­cally get up on stage any­more. In a stern warn­ing to so­cial me­dia users who tell them to call it a day, the 70-year-old rocker fumed: “I say get off your a*** and get work­ing while you can. “We ig­nore all that. We’re still in our el­e­ment and will go on for as long as pos­si­ble. “We en­joy what we do and so do our fans. “Look how many peo­ple around the world want to come and see us. “But be­ing in front of home fans is spe­cial.” The ‘Sat­is­fac­tion’ hit­mak­ers are set to em­bark on the UK leg of their ‘No Fil­ter Tour’ this sum­mer, and The Sun news­pa­per re­ports that Flo­rence Welch of Flo­rence + The Ma­chine is set to make a sur­prise ap­pear­ance at one of their dates at Lon­don Sta­dium on May 22 and May 25. The ‘Dog Days Are Over’ hit­maker pre­vi­ously joined the group on stage for a duet of ‘Gimme Shel­ter’ at the cap­i­tal’s The O2 arena in 2012. The leg­endary band are set to per­form on UK turf for the first time in five years. Gui­tarist Keith pre­vi­ously claimed it would take some­one “keel­ing over” be­fore they go their sep­a­rate ways. When asked what it would take for the band to end, he replied: “Some­body keel­ing over. There’s never ever been a word about it mut­tered among our­selves. “I guess the day’s ob­vi­ously go­ing to come, some day. But not in the near fu­ture. We’re all look­ing for­ward to do­ing what we’re do­ing, es­pe­cially back in Blighty.”
