Keith Richards Sets Out Timeline For A New Rolling Stones Record


Keith Richards has been promoting the US leg of the No Filter tour. The U.S stint comes after their European leg in the autumn of 2017 and spring of last year. The veteran rockers will kick off a 13-date US tour at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida on April 20.

This tour so far has seen the Stones provide their usual classics while throwing in some rarities along the way. Now, Richards has said that fans can anticipate a different show when it hits the States.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the guitarist said,

“Yeah. Different orders. We’ll try different things out. Mick sometimes has different ideas about staging for a certain number and you’ve got to figure things out. But basically just when we get the band into top form and top gear flight by April.”

Richards admitted that he didn’t get all of the songs he wanted into the 2017 and 2018 concerts. The axeman is hoping to get at least one rarity included in the spring 2019 run,

“I was already throwing in the last time but it didn’t get to the show, but it was ‘Cry To Me’ the old Solomon Burke thing we did,” says the rocker about the tune they covered on 1965’s “Out Of Our Heads.” “So I want to try that one on for size. See how it goes.”

When pressed about a new album the rocker said,

“Oh man, no. Like I say, early stages. I would say if I’m looking at it, we’re going to do this tour, so maybe this time next year, I would say. Maybe. That looks like a reasonable projection.”

When asked what keeps him going, Richards said it’s the stage that keeps him going,

“It’s a living. Um, it’s what I do, man. Give me 50,000 people and I feel right at home. The whole band does. As Ronnie and I often say before we go on, ‘Let’s get onstage and get some peace and quiet.”
