Ron Wood has all but confirmed that the Rolling Stones will play more shows than the four they have scheduled in for 2012. The band have announced two shows in London, and two in Newark, New Jersey, but the Rolling Stones guitarist has pretty much confirmed that there will be more, as well as heavily hinting that a Glastonbury appearance could be on the cards.

In an interview with NME, he said:

“There’s going to be little club gigs that we’re gonna surprise ourselves to do as well. We’ll bung a few in next week or the week after, so look out for any Cockroaches gigs or whatever! I don’t know who we’ll be billed as, but we’ll turn up somewhere and put a few to the test. Tiny, 200, 300 people kind of places.”

Keep your eyes peeled, if you see any bands scheduled for last minute headline slots at popular local venues then you just might be about to see the Rolling Stones play on a stage that you may have played on yourself before. That's big news.

Ronnie Wood also said that rehearsal is going well for the shows:

“We’re all making a concentrated effort of being there on time every day. We start at three o’clock in the afternoon. We go through to dinnertime. We have one break and so far everything has been an operation, nose to the grindstone. We wanna give 200 percent.”

He also brought up Glastonbury: 

 "There’s been no mention of [Glastonbury, within the band] but I’m gonna bring it up. They’ll probably go 'get out of here Woody, shut up, no!' I don’t care, I always take risks like that, so I'll put it forward.

"I have great respect for [Glastonbury] because it is an institution, that there frolic in the mud. No festival would be complete without the mud! The ghost of Woodstock, I regard it as."
