Rolling Stones – 50 years and Counting



A group of friends and co-workers got coveted tickets to see the Rolling Stones live at Hyde Park yesterday. Taking advantage of the lovely summer weather, the group met up in Hyde Park for pre-party picnic outside the gate.



Some 44 years since they last played at Hyde Park, it was unforgettable evening and probably one of the most memorable concerts I’ve attended. On a warm balmy London evening, the legendary Rolling Stones delighted the crowd of 65,000 fans. They played all their classics starting with “Start Me Up” to ignite the crowd, and was joined by former band member Mick Taylor. Just shy of his 70th birthday, lead frontman Mick Jagger still got the moves, donning his infamous 'white dress' amongst other costume changes. 



Long live the Rolling Stones!
