LONDON: The Rolling Stones' guitarist Ronnie Wood is to marry his girlfriend of six months, a theatre producer 31 years his junior, his spokesman confirmed on Tuesday.

Wood, 65, will wed 34-year-old Sally Humphreys, the owner of a theatre production company.

"Ronnie is engaged to Sally," a spokesman said.

The guitarist, who has played with the Stones since 1975 and has publicly battled against drug and alcohol addiction, left his second wife Jo in 2008 for a 21-year-old former cocktail waitress, Ekaterina Ivanova.

His divorce from 57-year-old Jo, his wife for more than 20 years and the mother of two of his children, was finalised last year.

He had previouly been married to Krissy Findlay, with whom he had a son, from 1971 to 1978.

Jo Wood's memoirs, due to be released in February, are set to shed light on her life as a Rolling Stone's spouse.

The band are celebrating a half-century in rock and roll this year and played their first concert in five years on Thursday at a small venue in Paris.

They have announced four major concerts in Britain and the United States to mark their 50th anniversary, but have met with a barrage of criticism from fans for charging £106 ($170, 131 euros) for the cheapest tickets to the London shows.

Coveted tickets to the sold-out gigs have soared in value, with two premium seats for one of the London gigs offered for £15,400 each on the Get Me In re-sale website.

The Rolling Stones play London's O2 Arena on November 25 and 29, followed by gigs at New Jersey's Newark Prudential Center, just outside New York, on December 13 and 15.
