Sir Mick Jagger has confirmed there will be Rolling Stones gigs before next summer, and possibly even this year.

Following weeks of speculation that the group would play live gigs in London and New York, Sir Mick confirmed the rumours on BBC Radio 2 saying:

"I'm sure there's going to be something on Facebook very soon about the tour. It's not going to be a long tour, the first bit anyway ...

"It's going to be much sooner than July. It could be as soon as the end of this year."
