The Rolling Stones have been rocking stages all over the world since last fall, and now, the Classic Rock legends are ready for a much-needed break.
But before they can put down their instruments and put up their feet, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts will play one more show at London’s Hyde Park this weekend.
Scheduled for Saturday (July 13), the UK rockers added the second Hyde Park concert after the first one, which took place on July 6, sold out in minutes upon its announcement in April.
As much of the 50 & Counting tour has featured special guest artists, we think it’s pretty safe to assume that the group’s final summer show will offer up some surprise appearances.
One person expected to take the stage is former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, who marked his anniversary with the band by performing with them at their Hyde Park show last weekend. Taylor famously made his Rolling Stones debut at Hyde Park in 1969, replacing the late Brian Jones. These concerts mark the first time the band has returned to the famous venue in 44 years.
Last Saturday, the Stones played a 17-song setlist for a crowd of 65,000, kicking off their show with the fan-favorite, “Start Me Up” for the first time since the tour began. If the success of last weekend’s concert is any indication, fans attending tonight’s sold-out performance will be in for a treat.
