The Rolling Stones Announce London Hyde Park Concert & US Tour Dates

Rock icons The Rolling Stones are returning to London’s Hyde Park this summer for a sensational outdoor concert on Saturday 6th July as part of Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park. Support comes from The Vaccines, The Temper Trap, Gary Clark Jr and King Charles, plus Palma Violets, Tribes, The Boxer Rebellion and more across three other stages.

ImageThe concert takes place almost 44 years to the day since the Stones first played Hyde Park, and will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood return to where they truly belong, back on the live stage, following the huge success of their ’50 and Counting’ shows last year. A North American tour has also been announced today, for more information, head to www.rollingstones.com.

Their Hyde Park concert on 5th July 1969 is widely acknowledged as one of the most significant moments in modern music history. As well as seeing the live debut of guitarist Mick Taylor, the concert became a tribute to founder member Brian Jones, who had tragically passed away two days prior.

Mick Jagger commented, “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.”

Keith Richards added, “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.”

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park gives music fans throughout the capital the chance to see many of their favourite headlining and supporting music artists play over back to back weekends.

Each live music-packed weekend will be linked by a midweek programme of diverse entertainment, accessible for all to enjoy. From Monday to Thursday, the entire Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park site, save for the main stage, will give visitors the chance to get involved with smaller, more intimate events offering film, music, literature, sport and a specific family day that will expand the Barclaycard British Summer Time Hyde Park experience to genuinely appeal to the whole family.

Rob Hallett of AEG Live says, "This will be the biggest gig of the summer in London. The Rolling Stones are a true British institution and the true spirit of rock n roll. Their return to Hyde Park is a landmark event."

They’ve certainly earned their reputation as the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band, but the Rolling Stones have always been, at heart, a terrific blues outfit. It’s the genre on which their empire was built and the bedrock of their swaggering identity. It’s their first, most abiding love. And now, over 50 years since they formed, Mick Jagger and co. have returned to mother on a youthful and exuberant album of blues covers for the connoisseur. That’s right, Stones purists: Christmas has come early.
