The Rolling Stones Set For BRIT Gig Prior To UK Tour, Glastonbury & Hard Rock Calling Announcement?

With the 2013 Brit Awards only a few weeks away, the ultimate star-studded music bash is shaping up to be one of the biggest and best on record.

ImageIn addition to live performances from Muse, Robbie Williams, Mumford & Sons and One Direction, veteran rockers The Rolling Stones look set to raise The O2's roof with a live medley of hits.

Nominated for Best British Live Act following their 50th Anniversary concerts in November last year, Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie are to bring the night's celebrations to a sensational finish on 20th February.

Keith Richards said: “Onstage is where we belong. When I’m up there with Mick, Charlie and Ronnie, everything is rocking, so a big thanks to Brit fans and the Brits nom!”

Mick Jagger added: “We all had such a blast. Everyone was at the top of their game and the hometown audiences at The O2 were just fantastic. It’s great to be nominated... we’ll see you soon.”

Stereoboard believes the band could announce their BRIT performance in the next few days, so be sure to check back or head to www.brits.co.uk for further details.

The latest rumours surrounding the Stones is that, following their mini BRIT gig, the band are to announce a UK stadium tour with tickets going on sale either Friday 22nd February or Friday 1st March. In addition, the Stones are also rumoured to reveal details of a Sunday night headline performance at Glastonbury Festival and an appearance at London's Hard Rock Calling this summer.

Mick told NME: “There are other things in the world, you know, apart from Glastonbury! But then again, Glastonbury is very important. It seems to be very important to my children – highlight of their year!”

The frontman also dropped perhaps one of the biggest Glasto hints yet, adding: "But is it going to be rainy on the Sunday? Isn't it nearly always rainy on the Sunday?"

Nothing has been confirmed by the band yet and speculation over whether or not the band will perform at this year's Glastonbury has been ongoing for months. Check back to Stereoboard for further updates on The Rolling Stones.
