Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor to join Rolling Stones at London gigs

Wednesday 21 November 2012
Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, 75, stood arm in arm with his old pals Mick Jagger, 69, Keith Richards, 68, and Charlie Watts, 71, at the premiere of a documentary celebrating the band's 50th anniversary last month.
They were standing on the red carpet at the world premiere of Crossfire Hurricane for what fans thought would be the first and last time in a long while.
But now Wyman and other former bandmember Mick Taylor will stand alongside the Stones once again onstage during their forthcoming London shows the NME confirmed today.
The pair will play with the band for the first time in more than 20 years for concerts at the 02 Arena next Sunday and the following Thursday.
The guitarists will appear as special guests during the Stones' performance.
Wyman split from the band in 1990 while Taylor played with the Stones from 1969 to 1874.
Both musicians appeared in Crossfire Hurricane.
The Stones have been criticised for the high cost of tickets for their impending gigs, up to £375. They have today released more tickets (click here for availability).
The Stones have just released greatest hits album Grrr! which includes two new tracks. Recent single "Doom And Gloom", which peaked at number 97 in the Official Singles Chart, is the band's worst chart performance for a new single. The band has unveiled a new video (above).
