Sources close to the band claim that the Glastonbury show will be the last of a "handful" of shows planned for 2013.
As 2013 marks their 50th anniversary, the show would provide a perfect platform for the band's last ever live gig together before retiring, the insider claims.
The source said: "All four members have agreed that next year is the right time to have one final hurrah and put on the gig of their lives. It's a case of now or never, and obviously Glastonbury is the most important festival on the circuit. Everybody's incredibly excited... it's a final bow."
Bassist Ronnie Wood recently hinted that the band may embark on a tour in October and November this year
The Rolling Stones have also announced plans to celebrate their 50th anniversary with a new documentary about their long career together
