A celebration to commemorate 50 years of music from The Kinks may involve a reunion tour, according to guitarist Dave Davies.

Davies recently told Rolling Stone there is a “50/50 chance” of a Kinks tour in 2014. Five years ago Davies hinted at a reunion during an interview with BBC Radio 4, but months later denied a full-fledged reunion tour would take place.
