The Rolling Stones have denied they are to retire next year following a headline slot at Britain’s Glastonbury Festival.
The veteran rockers were said to be planning the final performance of their career at the summer music festival following a handful of gigs in the U.K. and U.S. this year as a celebration of their 50th anniversary.
But representatives for the band have since told NME.com there is no truth to the reports, and a spokesperson for the festival has told Britain’s The Guardian newspaper, “Everybody… thinks they’ve come up with the perfect Glastonbury line-up. But at the moment there isn’t anything to confirm or deny.”
