Will The Stones Tour In 2012?

A sighting of Rolling Stones members emerging from the same London building a few days ago triggered another round of speculation that a 2012 reunion tour is  a done deal.  Mick Jagger says that's not the case.  While not completely dismissing the possibility that the band will mount a tour next year, the front man did seem to slam the door on any possibility the group would accept an offer to play at an opening or closing ceremony for the London Olympics - an invitation Jagger contends has not been extended yet.  Speaking with the BBC, Jagger said he is inclined to heed the advice of Bryan Adams, who apparently regrets the performance he did during the opening of the last Winter Olympics in Canada.  Mick also ragged on the appearance Jimmy Page made during the closing of the Beijing Summer Olympics in 2008, saying the spectacle of the Led Zeppelin guitarist doing Whole Lotta Love from atop a London style bus to promote the UK 2012 games '...wasn't a brilliant piece of theater', and adding 'I don't want to be on that bus when it arrives in London.'
