Stones for Hyde!


…Sadly NOT Malahide.

But if the thought of seeing the Stones in the mud-bath that is ALWAYS Glasto, rejoice!

The rockers announced that they will play a special July show in Hyde Park, the scene of a famous free concert which the band performed in 1969, following the death of guitarist Brian Jones.

Tickets will be priced at €112.00 for the Saturday, July 6 concert. (Not Free then!)

Capacity for the London concert will be restricted to 65,000 fans, following complaints from local residents over the disturbance created by the Hyde Park events.

Mick Jagger said: “We had such a great time playing the five concerts last year, we want to keep it going. Hyde Park holds such great memories for us and we can’t think of anywhere better to perform to our UK fans this summer.”

The concert takes place almost 44 years to the day since the Stones first played Hyde Park on July 5, 1969, two days after Jones drowned in his swimming pool.
