We know for certain there will be four Rolling Stones performances this year, but that doesn’t mean you might not see the band playing somewhere other than London’s O2 Arena or New Jersey’s Prudential Center. Guitarist Ron Wood just stated that there might be some warm-up dates using one of the band’s fake names.

Wood told NME that the group is considering the idea of playing a few small shows under a fake name just to break away from rehearsal and test things out. He adds, “We’re all making a concentrated effort of being there on time every day. We start at three o’clock in the afternoon. We go through to dinnertime. We have one break and so far everything has been an operation, nose to the grindstone. We wanna give 200 percent.”

Of the potential for impromptu shows, Wood added, “There’s going to be little club gigs that we’re gonna surprise ourselves to do as well. We’ll bung a few in next week or the week after, so look out for any Cockroaches gigs or whatever! I don’t know who we’ll be billed as, but we’ll turn up somewhere and put a few to the test. Tiny, 200, 300 people kind of places.”

The group has been rehearsing in Paris ahead of their planned fall performances. They’ll play London’s O2 Arena Nov. 25 and 29. They’ve also booked shows at New Jersey’s Prudential Center in Newark Dec. 13 and 15.
