After months of speculation, guitarist Keith Richards has confirmed that bassist Bill Wyman will be making a cameo during the Rolling Stones’ 50th Anniversary concerts. Wyman, who played with the iconic rock band from 1962 to 1993, will be at both the London and New Jersey concerts, though he previously stated he doesn’t fly anymore.

Rolling Stones 50th AnniversaryWhile the 76-year old bassist will be standing alongside his former bandmates, Richards explains that it will only be for a few songs, and that current touring bassist Darryl Jones is still their main player.

“Darryl doesn’t get enough recognition,” he told Rolling Stone. “He and Bill can talk about songs they want to step in and out of.”

The Rolling Stones will be performing a total of four shows: two at London’s O2 arena on November 25th and 26th and two at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center on December 13th and 14th. General tickets are on sale now.
