The Rolling Stones are reportedly close to agreeing a deal which will see them headline Glastonbury next year.
The festival currently has no confirmed headline acts, though tickets went on sale last weekend and sold out immediately. It is understood that Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis is desperate to book the band to play next year and is in talks with their management to secure the booking.
"The band are gearing up for a load of live dates but tend to leave big decisions like this until the last minute," a source told The Sun.
Adding: "Michael Eavis is desperate to get the band confirmed and has made initial contact with their people.
"It would be a massive coup to get the band playing Glasto on what could be their last round of live dates.
"Getting a decision from the whole band can be tough and at the moment they are without an agent for live shows, which is not helping the situation. But there is a good chance 2013 will finally be the year they make it."
Meanwhile, The Rolling Stones released new single 'Doom and Gloom' yesterday (Oct 11) which you can hear below.
