The Rolling StonesMick Jagger hinted earlier this year that “autumn” would be the next time he thought we’d see the band onstage. It now looks as though that prediction is pretty spot on, as Billboard reports that the band are in the process of lining up four performances later this year.

A source tells the magazine that Sir Richard Branson and Australian promoter Paul Dainty are backing the four shows, which will take place this November. Two of the shows will take place at London’s O2 Arena, while the other two are heading across the pond to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Though the band are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, the talk about a tour has been a touchy one with each of the members at time chiming in with differing stories. Earlier this year the group stated that they wouldn’t go on tour, but then they started having a few rehearsals in the studio. By July, Keith Richards hinted that there might be some live shows coming. He explained, “We’ve got together and it feels so good. There’s things in the works. I think it’s definitely happening. But when? I can’t say yet.”

Michael Cohl, who produced the band’s tours from 1989 through the present, told Billboard back in late June that he hadn’t received any info on the band’s upcoming tour plans.
