The Rolling Stones - Rolling Stones agree one hour BBC gig at Glastonbury

The Rolling Stones will air one hour of their Glastonbury gig on the BBC.

The legendary rockers had previously limited the broadcaster to airing just four songs from their headline set at the music festival next week, but both parties have now reached a compromise to air 60 minutes of the performance.

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis told The Independent newspaper: ''I think they're all friends now. They're going to be playing for about an hour for the TV.

''I think Mick Jagger wanted to play to the people here, rather than a TV show.''

However, TV audiences won't be able to see the rockers' full gig, which is expected to last two hours and 15 minutes.

The Stones - including Sir Mick, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts - will headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury on Saturday, June 27, which is the second night of the three-day festival.

Mick recently revealed plans to join fellow festival-goers at Worthy Farm in Somerset, south west England, by camping out during the weekend.

He said: ''I've got nothing else to do on Glasto weekend, and I want to spend some time with my family and have a good time as well.''

Other Glastonbury headliners include the Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons.
