“I just haven’t had time to properly think about it”, replies the 74-year-old rocker on the question of whether this is the farewell tour. “Maybe you know it also can never be sure. It would be the last, I don’t know.”
The decision to have this tour to do, came right after the previous tour in 2015. The decision-making process was simple, says Richards. “We said to each other: ‘let’s still do – where will we go?’ Sometimes it can be a decision as hapsnap be taken.”
Keith Richards was in 1962 one of the founders of the Rolling Stones. Since then, the band has become one of the largest and best-known bands in music history. Richards is except the guitarist, also a writer of several hits of the Stones.
The band made in 1964 for the first time, a tour through the USA. “The difference is that we drive around in a station wagon,” says Richards. “America was very different in the mid – ’60. To be honest I can’t believe that I so long to do. I have seen this country grow. Because I am older than most Americans, I know the land better than they are.”
