A UK tabloid is reporting The Rolling Stones will play their farewell show at the 2013 Glastonbury festival.
The Mirror reports the Stones will play the coveted Sunday night headline slot on the Pyramid stage after talks with festival organizers.
It will be their first - and only ¬ performance at the famous Somerset festival which attracts 175,000 fans.
Sources close to the band indicate that the appearance is expected to be the final date in a “handful” of shows in Britain and America in 2013 – which they see as their true 50th anniversary – before they finally retire from the live arena.
“All four members have agreed that next year is the right time to have one final hurrah and put on the gig of their lives,” a source tells The Mirror. “It’s a case of now or never, and obviously Glastonbury is the most important festival on the circuit. Everybody’s incredibly excited... it’s a final bow.”
