The Rolling Stones have today (15 October, 2012) announced two live shows at London's O2. It has been the worst kept secret of the music industry over the past few weeks.
Neither the band, or their touring musicians, have been able to keep it zipped, happily discussing the live plans with every magazine they come into contact with. But now, two shows have been officially confirmed, tying in with the band's 50th anniversary earlier this year - and the premiere of new track, 'Doom & Gloom' last week.
Many bands struggle to pull off huge live shows after five years, let alone 50, but Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts have something special in their determination to keep on rocking - no matter what it says on their passports.
So, ahead of the band's two live shows at London's O2 in November, see how the band are bearing up after 50 years in the business.
