Interesting. What is the Express' reputation for accurate reporting?

Reasonable. Its the lead story in their showbiz section and, in fairness, while the press tend to be inventive about salacious gossip, this isnt the sort of topic theyd make up out of thin air.

That said, the 'source close to the band' seems to make it out that a lot of it is down to Ronnie's money issues and the collapse of any plans for the Faces to tour. Personally Ive my doubts on whether - in the current economic climate - any financial adviser close to the Stones would recommend them touring without a new 'product'. And there's nothing in the story to indicate a new record.

ROLLING STONES - WOOD PUSHES PLANS FOR STONES TOUR


THE ROLLING STONES are reportedly putting plans in place for a 2009 tour - after guitarist RONNIE WOOD's hopes of reuniting THE FACES fell through. Wood was eager to get the seventies band back together, telling Rolling Stone magazine that he and former frontman Rod Stewart were working on new material and talking about a series of concert dates later this year (09).
But Stewart dismissed the comeback reports, with his representative saying, "There are no plans for a Faces reunion tour this year."
And now Wood has persuaded his Rolling Stones bandmates to consider taking to the road on a global jaunt - their first since 2006's A Bigger Bang tour - according to Britain's Daily Express.
A source tells the publication, "Now that the Faces reunion seems to be off, Ronnie is free to perform with the Stones. There is this offer for a U.S. tour on the table. It's a good offer."
However, it is alleged Wood is eyeing a Rolling Stones tour because he is desperate to earn more cash to cover his impending divorce from estranged wife Jo.
The insider adds, "Keith (Richards) is particularly close to Ronnie and told him it would be a great way of getting back on his feet, both personally and financially, after all that's happened over the past several months."
Wood left his wife of 23-years in 2008 after his affair with 20-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova was exposed. He subsequently moved out of the family home and has offered Jo a reported $4.9 million (£3 million)-a-year divorce deal.

You guys KNOW how bad I want a Stones Tour, but Ronnie does NOT call the shots.

2010 makes much more sense to me AND, more importantly, MY BANK ACCOUNT!!!  you made a grown man cry

the Daily Express article isnt online as yet, but it does indeed quote a 'close source' as saying  that they have a 'good offer' to tour the US later this year and are planning to do so.

That said, a lot of the article seems to be a case of putting two and two together and making five. It basically suggests that its only really coming about because Ronnie is available due to the Faces not touring (as if that would ever have taken precedence) and that a prime motivation for them touring is Ronnie's financial state. It also tellingly makes no mention of a new record - personally I'd be very surprised if the Stones, after having signed a new contract, would embark on a new tour without some 'product' to promote.

The funniest thing in the whole article was the 'source's remark about how they're in such good health for their age, citing that Keith "only eats organic food" (presumably his vodka is organic as well....)

Personally, I cant see them touring in 2009 for several reasons - the state of the economy (which will affect a Stones ticket more than that by anyone else), no sign of a new record being made as yet and the fact that U2 will probably be taking up a large share of the ticket-buying cake). That said, at least its good to know they're INTENDING to do so at some point in the future.

LJ - The ever-useless Contactmusic as usual have taken things out of context, with their heading suggesting that Woody is 'pushing' plans for a Stones tour. At no point in the Daily Express article does it say that.

Oh, my mistake, G. I thought I was looking at the same source.

Agreed that 2009 is unlikely but something appears to be in the works!!!!  Cool

Crazier things could happen right?
Let Bruce & U2 slug it out for most of the year for touring
Then the Stones show up with a late arena '09 tour, moving into Winter '10
Maybe the carrot to them from the record company would be
release some remastered product with new tracks in the spring,
then come out with something in the fall, followed
by a tour.  Hell, maybe the new product would be Tattoo You II
with outs making enough for an lp?

VETERAN STONES ALL SET TO HIT THE ROAD AGAIN 

...

THE LAST TIME? The Stones are going on tour
Wednesday February 4,2009

THEY’VE got a combined age of 258 but the hardest working band in rock ’n’ roll aren’t sitting at home in their tartan slippers.

The Rolling Stones are dusting off their guitars for a tour later this year.

Mick and Keith, both 65, ­Ronnie, 61, and Charlie, 67, are set for a multi-million-pound pay day by going on the road again.

And Ronnie Wood is keen on the idea so he can earn some cash to offset what looks to be a costly divorce from wife Jo.

The OAP rockers have drawn up plans for the American tour, which can now go ahead after a proposed Faces reunion fell by the wayside.

Ronnie was all set to perform with his old band, headed by Rod Stewart, later this year but those plans have been canned.

A source close to the band said: “There is this offer for a US tour on the table. It’s a good offer.

“They may be well into their 60s but the lads can still out-rock most of the bands around today.

“They live well. Mick is a very healthy eater and Keith only has organic meals. They are in great shape for their ages. They live for performing so they will relish being back on the road. It’s what they first got in the game to do.”

The band has performed hundreds of concerts with 38 tours across the globe in the past 46 years. The source continued: “Now that the Faces reunion seems to be off, Ronnie is free to perform with the Stones.


“Keith is particularly close to Ronnie and told him it would be a great way for him to get back on his feet, both personally and ­financially, after all that’s happened over the past several months.”

The source added: “It will be great motivation for Ronnie because he loves playing live. The gigs will go down a storm I’m sure.”

It has emerged Ronnie is facing financial difficulties after spending his £2.5million share from the Stones’ 2007 Bigger Bang tour.

He has also sacked his manager Jamie, his stepson, who is the son of estranged wife Jo. Jamie handled all of Ronnie’s affairs.

Ronnie has been living it up in LA with 20-year-old toygirl lover Ekaterina Ivanova.

So how I wish this was true...but my bet is its Ronnie talking out of his ass again.This year in arenas theres no way you sell $400 tix.Maybe first 20 rows but the balanace of tickets would half to be in the $125 max range imo.That would make about a $2.5 million gross per night per arena. Hardly something to get Mick and Keith enthused about.With nothing new to promote why bother then? Hell Ronnie can paint his way to more money than this.

As most people have said, it would be great if they did tour.

The Stones wouldnt have to record any new material to release a product. I am sure there is no end of unreleased material they could shove together to produce something which, lets face it, we would buy.

I personally don´t believe that they tour this year,,,no talks about new album,they´ve usually started working on album,a year before tour start,or at least
9 months before.

As gazza pointed,world economy is in deep shit,iF that doesn´t rise up during summer,and it won´t.
And no tour.125 bucks is too expensive now.

Tina Turner is asking over 100euros for Helsinki show....its a miracle if its sold out,we have lots of people without work.

its a miracle if a tour happens this year.

Are the STONES working on a new album, repackaged or otherwise? I dont think they can push SHine A Light anymore, it's 'been there done that' so I would expect a new album before a tour. BACK TO THE STUDIO BOYS time it passes fast!
