The Rolling Stones are planning a 50th-anniversary tour that will also serve as a farewell tour, the Daily Mail reports. "They want to bow out on top of their game, and not short-change their fans," a source says of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood—whose combined age will be 268 when the tour launches next year..

The tour will wrap up in 2012, 50 years and 200 million albums sold after the band was formed—and 41 years after their first farewell tour. Wondering where you've heard about the Stones recently? Jagger figures in the new tell-all biography of Angelina Jolie.
