You Gotta Move: The Rolling Stones Confirm Hyde Park And America Shows

They announced Glastonbury the other day and now The Rolling Stones have confirmed that they’ll not only be playing Hyde Park in London, but also heading out to the US for a series shows, as the group begin their sixth decade together in style.

The band will play the London park, where they first played in 1969, on Saturday, July 6th, with Mick Jagger commenting “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.” Guitarist 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.” Hyde Park suffered from a catalogue of issues last year, including curfew and noise issues, which saw promoter Live Nation discard it as a venue. It’ll be interesting to see how the Stones fare.

Elsewhere, The Associated Press report that the band will be playing nine cities in the US, starting in Los Angeles at an unspecified date and finishing in Philadelphia on June 18th. "From day one at rehearsals it sounded so fresh. You could tell that everybody was dying to get their teeth into it," Keith Richards said of their return. "... it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people."
