The wait for Rolling Stones fans is almost over. On Friday (March 29th), the band posted a message on their official website (TheRollingStones.com) featuring a single line stating, "5 DAYS & COUNTING. . ." Underneath was a newly produced video of "Doom And Gloom" featuring footage of the Stones performing the song during their December shows over the officially released studio recording. So far, all that fans know about the announcement is that it is expected to contain the dates for at least 18 North American shows.
The Stones have so far announced that they'll headline England's Glastonbury festival on June 29th. Original bassist Bill Wyman will also be playing Glastonbury that day with his solo band, the Rhythm Kings. There's been no announcement whether he'll join the Stones during their performance as he had during the band's London dates last year.
