Remember when the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rolling Stones[/lastfm] used to release a “45,” or new single, every so often? The band has announced that all 45 of their classic “45s” will be released as part of a special box set. But what about a tour?
The band announced on its official site Wednesday that the box set will arrive in stores in the U.K. on April 11, while U.S. dates have yet to be announced.
Each single will come in its own packaging, from “Brown Sugar” to “Biggest Mistake.” The set spans 36 years of Rolling Stones singles, and will also include 80 unreleased live tracks and demos and a 32-page full-color booklet featuring an interview will Bill Wyman.
Basically, this box set is a must-have for any Rolling Stones fan. Any chance to obtain 80 previously unreleased tracks cannot go unnoticed.
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards also made headlines for an unrelated story regarding comments Richards made about Jagger’s manhood.
Richards wrote unflattering remarks about Jagger’s “tiny todger” in his book and repeated the same comments in recent interviews, which reportedly has severely strained the relationship between the two.
Some believe this is the real reason talks of a potential Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour have stalled, according to a report from Mirror in the U.K. But Jagger still plans to perform at this Sunday’s GRAMMYs.
