Rolling Stones to Play London's Hyde Park in July

 

Music fans in London have an amazing opportunity this summer: According to the BBC, the Rolling Stones will perform in Hyde Park for the first time since a legendary free concert for an estimated 250,000 people in 1969, two days after death of guitarist Brian Jones.

The outdoor gig will take place on July 6, a week after the group's first appearance at the Glastonbury festival.

Unlike in 1969, this year's show will not be free - but ticket prices have not yet been announced. (The group reportedly angered some fans when they charged up to £406 for shows at the O2 arena last year.)

The Hyde Park show - part of Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park - will come a week after the Stones headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. The Stones have also announced a North American tour, beginning in May, but with more recovery time between gigs than in previous years.

"You gotta pace yourself," the 69-year-old Mick Jagger said. "We have enough time before we come back to England, so we'll be well recovered."
