Keith Richards has said The Rolling Stones are "bound to" have their own hologram show - whether he likes it or not.

The legendary guitarist has said he wouldn't rule out an ABBA Voyage-style tour from the band - completed by Mick Jagger, 80, and Ronnie Wood, 76 - but doesn't think he wants to be around to witness it.

"Well, I certainly wouldn't rule it out," he mused to Apple Music 1. "I'm pretty sure that it is bound to happen. Do I want it? Now, that's another thing. But I don't know if I want to hang around that long enough, man. But at the same time, it won't be up to me, will it?"

Jagger previously addressed the topic in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, where he said: “You can have a posthumous business now, can’t you? You can have a posthumous tour.

"The technology has really moved on since the ABBA thing, which I was supposed to go to, but I missed it.”
