Are they going to tour, or not?

The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary as a band this year, and they've been offering a lot of hints that they'll hit the road for another tour. The last road trip came in 2007.

Ronnie Wood has offered more hints that the Stones are on the brink of announcing a new world tour. He says they're talking about a tour after meeting up for rehearsals before Christmas, and says they're still in the talking mode. Each week brings a new development, Wood says.

The Toronto Sun reports it's a matter of tying up loose ends.

So there you have it, more hints and nothing official! Come on Stones, 2012 is wasting away and we're not coming to a "51st Anniversary Celebration Tour." We want 50!

We'll keep you updated.
