With the Rolling Stones officially back in business with a portion of their 2013 itinerary finally announced, the band is gearing up for a busy spring and summer. Keith Richards told the BBC, “It’s going to be a great summer — all the gigs we haven’t done or wanted to redo are popping up.” Mick Jagger says that he’s concerned about the band’s summer gig at UK’s legendary Glastonbury festival, admitting, “It’s quite a difficult gig. U2 had terrible weather and that didn’t help. You have to learn from their experiences.”

Charlie Watts, who’s never been one to pull any punches, told The Guardian, that he’s hardly looking forward to the Stones’ return to London’s Hyde Park for their first concert there since July 5th, 1969: “I don’t want to do it. Everyone else does. I don’t like playing outdoors, and I certainly don’t like festivals. The worst thing playing outdoors is when the wind blows, if you’re a drummer, because the cymbals move. . . It is really hard to play then.”
