Ronnie Wood has joked that he would love to be able play pubs and clubs with The Rolling Stones

Ronnie Wood would love The Rolling Stones to do a club and pub tour.

The 69-year-old rocker has joked that he would like the 'Satisfaction' hitmakers - also comprised of Sir Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Keith Richards - to perform in intimate venues, and while that is unlikely to happen, Wood says they are in talks to play some of the more offbeat areas of the UK on their next tour, which looks set to be sometime in 2017.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music, he quipped: "What I've announced is a club tour this year. None of the rest of the band know this yet but it's going to be great, coming to a town near you."

He added: "I said to the boys that I want to play the provinces around Britain. That would be great."

However, the only thing they are waiting on is drummer Charlie Watts, 75, who plans to go on holiday in March.

He said: "We have it sort of tentatively booked in the near future but I know Charlie wants the month of March off. I don't blame him."

And the legendary group could have some new music for their fans by the time they hit the road if Keith Richards has anything to do with it.

Wood said: "Keith just tried to get us in the studio in New York last week.

"I was like, 'Hang on. Do us a favour - we have Christmas coming up up.' But It's going to pick up steam again."

It comes following reports that the 'Paint It Black' rockers are planning a new world tour in 2017.

A source previously said: "Mick will never lose that bug for performing.

"Next year is going to be a big one, but not just because fatherhood is looming once again. He's keen to go back on the road and play in huge stadiums, and some have already been secretly booked out in preparation for a possible show."
