"I hope they don't think we're a rock 'n' roll outfit," said Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger in a 1962 blurb for their first-ever performance at the Marquee Club in London.

The Rolling Stones celebrated the 50th anniversary of their first live show together this weekend at the London opening of an exhibition featuring photographs of the band.

Jagger intimated at the exhibition that fans could see The Rolling Stones back on tour together as early as this fall, NME reported.

"You will definitely be seeing us all together soon. It's been great fun being back together and there are a lot of memories in here. I can't believe it's been 50 years. We've been hanging out together, seeing quite a bit of each other and we want to do some gigs," Jagger said.
