Rolling Stones return to Hyde Park

The Stones are rolling back into Hyde Park almost 44 years to the day that they played a famous free concert there.

The band, who are also the top name at Glastonbury this year, will headline the event in central London on Saturday July 6 and will also play a full north American tour.

Frontman 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 band's first Hyde Park concert, on July 5 1969, was only two days after the death of founder member Brian Jones and marked the live debut of his replacement guitarist, Mick Taylor.

Keith Richards said: "We all had such a ball last year, and the energy between the band is so good, we can't wait to get back on that stage where the Stones belong."

Tickets for the event - which features three stages and is formally known as Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park - will go on general sale on Friday for £95.

The band's 50th anniversary gigs last year were criticised for high ticket prices.

When the O2 concerts were announced, promoters said the face value price of the tickets ranged from £95 to £375. A "VIP hospitality" ticket was priced at £950.

But Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood defended the high prices, saying preparations for the two gigs had cost them millions of pounds.

He said: "We've already spent a million on rehearsing in Paris. And the stage is going to be another few million. And the lights. We feel no bad thing about ticket prices. We've got to make something."
