Rolling Stones in Hyde Park

Event:
The boys are back (in Hyde Park)
The Rolling Stones are set to play Hyde Park on July 6th, 44 years after they last played there. The huge concert is part of the band's 50th anniversary celebrations, with Mick, Keith and the rest of the legendary rock band promising a show to remember.


When the Stones first played there way back in 1969, Jagger wore a white dress and the concert was free. This time around, the event is ticketed and there's no word yet on what Mick's going to wear.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 5th April, so you're going to have to be quick off the mark if you want to have a chance of bagging one although in a recent BBC interview Jagger mischievously suggested there were probably a few gaps in the fence that might be of interest to those who don't manage to get their hands on a ticket. Also, in case you haven't already heard, the Stones are playing Glastonbury a week before Hyde Park.

With the band members getting on a bit, their live London show may be your last chance to see the Stones live, though to be fair, observers have been saying that for the last 15 years.

Jagger is, after all, supremely fit, and at 69 still somehow manages to move around the stage with the energy of someone a third of his age. Can't quite say the same for Richards, though to give him credit, he still turns up and does the job with the same passion he did 20, 30, 40 years ago.

Supporting the Stones on 6th July will be The Vaccines, The Temper Trap, and Gary Clark Jr.
