Rolling Stones Plan North American Summer Tour
Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood says in two new interviews that the band is planning to launch a North American tour this summer and he also discussed the possibility of a Faces reunion.
Wood broke the news of the Rolling Stones tour plans while discussing Karl Denson continuing with the band in place of their legendary sax player Bobby Keys, who died in December.
"We're thinking of keeping Karl on, because he really loved Bobby's work," Woods told Radio.com. He was then asked if the band would need a sax player anytime soon and Woods responded, "We're coming to North America in the summer."
Wood also confirmed the plans in a separate interview with GMI Rock News. "Oh yeah, we had a meeting in New York with the boys, and we're gonna come to North America again in the summer."
Apart from the Stones, Wood discussed his other legendary band the Faces in the Radio.com interview and the recent reunion jam with the three surviving members, himself, Rod Stewart and Kenny Jones at Stewart's 70th birthday party.
"Well, we just played at Rod's 70th birthday a couple of weekends ago in L.A. We got up at Rod's party, me and Kenney and Rod and played 'Stay With Me' and 'Sweet Little Rock and Roller,' and Rod and Kenney were very enthusiastic about a Faces reunion."
