Mick Jagger has said that he has no plans to retire any time soon.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Jagger says that he has never considered retirement. “I don’t know when I’m going to stop, but I’m still going now,” he states.

Jagger continued: “It’s a very energising thing. You never get bored. It’s very irresponsible, because you don’t have to worry. You get to one place and you know you’re not going to stay there more than a couple of days. Good, bad or indifferent, you’re on to the next place.”

“I get very emotionally involved with the whole thing. I’m very passionate about touring. Every time you go onstage it’s a very exciting moment, because you never know what’s going to happen. It’s always different. A lot of unexpected things happen. Each show is a new event.”

The Australian and New Zealand leg of the Stones’ 14 On Fire tour is due to kick off on October 25 in Adelaide, Australia. The band were originally scheduled to perform there in March.
