• Is Mick Jagger thinking about quitting?
  • The legendary singer is now almost 80
  • Jagger talks about going back on the road

Mick Jagger has no plans to retire. The 78-year-old rocker and his Rolling Stones bandmates will kick off the European leg of their Sixty world tour next month. The rock veterans are celebrating sixty years on stage with the concert tour, but if Jagger has his way, the Rolling Stones will be playing together for a long time to come.

Jagger still loves touring even today

In an interview with Swedish radio station P4, the musician opened up about the possibility of retirement. "I am not planning it to be the last tour. I love being on tour. I don’t think I would do it if I did not enjoy it," he explained. "I enjoy going out there on stage and doing my stuff. That is what I do."

"I want everyone to enjoy themselves," Jagger continued, "and forget the troubles in their lives for a couple of hours and just chill out and have a great afternoon and evening." But Jagger also thinks that the new generation of rockers has a lot up their sleeve. Yungblud and Machine Gun Kelly in particular give him hope for the genre.

"In rock music you need energy and there has not been a lot of new rock singers around. Now there are a few," he said. "You have Yungblud and Machine Gun Kelly. That kid of post-punk vibe makes me think there is still a bit of life in rock and roll."
