Richards didn’t mention any specific dates but told Q magazine over the weekend that the band was planning to play England’s capital city as well as the Big Apple.
“We’ve got some shows in London, I believe, and in New York, but I really can’t talk about any of that at the moment,” he said Oct. 6. “They’ve put the gag on me on this. You can hint!”
The guitarist told Q the band was a week into a month of rehearsals. Richards said he and his bandmates were having a great time, explaining that after two days of playing together once again, “a certain demon energy takes over.”
Mick Jagger mentioned the studio in a tweet in August. He wrote that he “had fun in the Paris studio this week” along with a photo of the frontman and his guitar.
