It came after Keith Richards kicked off the new year by teasing new music from the band is "on its way".

In a belated Happy New Year video message on Instagram, the Gimme Shelter rocker said: "Hi guys, here we are again.

“Wishing you all a belated Happy New Year and there’s some new music on its way and hopefully we’ll get to see you. You know? Anyway, let’s keep our fingers crossed.”

2022 saw the band continue to celebrate their 60th anniversary with their mammoth SIXTY tour, where they played UK dates, which included a return to Liverpool for the first time in over 50 years and two nights at BST Hyde Park.

The band also paid tribute to their late drummer Charlie Watts at their gigs, who sadly passed away in 2021 aged 80.
