Keith Richards has said that a future Rolling Stones hologram show is “bound to happen”.

The band returned last week with new album Hackney Diamonds, their first all-original new album in over a decade.

In an interview with Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music 1 radio, Richards was asked about advances in AI and what it might mean for the future of Rolling Stones live experiences.

“Well, I certainly wouldn’t rule it out,” the guitarist said. “I’m pretty sure that it is bound to happen”.

He added: “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?”

Last week, The Rolling Stones held a special, secret album launch party in New York City, where they were joined by Lady Gaga.

“This is the first club gig we’ve played in a long time in New York,” Mick Jagger told the crowd at the Racket club. “I used to come to this club when it was called the Highline. Then it was called Blow and then Powder. Anyway, it’s great to be here making a racket. We’re going to make a racket with his next one. It’s called ‘Bite My Head Off.’”
