After months of speculation regarding a Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour next year and a recent announcement from Keith Richards that he, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and (presumably) the rest of the Stones touring band would convene for rehearsal in London in December, Mick Jagger is finally entering into the fray.

Keith has now announced that he and Mick will sit down in the coming weeks and decide exactly what 2012 will hold for the world's greatest rock and roll band.

Richards explained to NME that he's hopeful that the New Year will find the band back on the road, admitting, "I don't see why in the world the Stones can't put together some kind of show next year. I'd almost count on it. It doesn't have to be the whole spectacle bull*** again, but we've got to find our own way through this."

Yes, a major concert tour is a big undertaking, but how many meetings and discussions do they need to go through before making up their minds?

Wood stated recently that Mick and Keith need to go through a "healing process", but when hasn't their been a Stones tour where there's been rumours of those two not getting along?

We'll keep you posted but for now, check out this video of them doing "Let's Spend the Night Together" on Keith's 38th birthday back in 1981.
