The Rolling Stones at Glastonbury!!!!!!!

The Rolling Stones are set to bow out in sensational style… with a farewell gig at ­Glastonbury next year.

The band, whose four members have a combined age of 272, will play the ­coveted Sunday night headline slot on the Pyramid stage after talks with festival organisers Michael and Emily Eavis.

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.

One insider revealed: “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.

“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.”

The band – whose song The Last Time hit No 1 in 1965 – are said to be ­unwilling to embark on another of their record-breaking world tours.

Mick Jagger, 68, says he doesn’t want to be away from his family for so long, and Keith Richards, also 68, has given up the hell-raising lifestyle that was a big part of touring.

Charlie Watts, 71, has never been a fan of life on the road. However, Ronnie Wood, 65, gave a strong hint that the band were preparing a comeback, saying: “It looks like we are going to be doing more stuff.”

Although the band played their first gig in July 1962, Keith says: “The Stones always considered ’63 to be 50 years, because Charlie didn’t actually join until January.”

Keith also hinted that ex-bass player Bill Wyman, who left in 1992, might join in, saying he was “up for it” and the issue had been discussed. Bill was ­replaced by US session player Darryl Jones, who was never made a full member.

The Stones are releasing a ­photo album to mark 50 years since their first gig. The Rolling Stones: 50 will feature 700 shots with words from the band on their history, and is released July 12.
