After much rumour as fact the Rolling Stones have made a statement to say that those stories of some 50th anniversary shows we keep hearing so much about are not true.

In a tweet, the Stones announced, “Dear fans, no Rolling Stones gigs have been confirmed or announced. Do not buy tickets from the SongKick website, or anywhere else”.

The Rolling Stones have been rumoured to be playing two shows in New York and two shows in London before the end of this year to mark their 50th anniversary year. The story even spread to them doing one show at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia.

The Rolling Stones will mark their 50th anniversary with the greatest hits album ‘GRRR!’ in November featuring two new tracks ‘Gloom and Doom’ and ‘One More Shot’, recorded in Paris in August 2012.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood are also confirmed to attend the premiere of the movie ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ later this month.
