‘After This We Take A Break’: The Rolling Stones To Put Their Feet Up After Hyde Park Shows This Summer
The Rolling Stones will take a well earned break following two massive shows at Hyde Park later this month.
Mick and the boys spent two months touring the US before flying back to the UK for a headline performance on the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury Festival last weekend.
Their live performances will conclude later this month when the Stones return to Hyde Park for two emotional shows on July 6 and 13 before taking a lengthy hiatus.
The ageing rockers’ last performance at the site came on July 5 1969, when their appearance onstage at The Stones in the Park free festival was overshadowed by the sudden death of former band member Brian Jones at his Sussex mansion two days earlier.
Speaking to Absolute Radio, Sir Mick admitted he was looking forward to the two shows.
“It’ll be fun…(we are looking) forward to doing these two shows in Hyde Park, the last two shows of…this tour so we’re gonna make them the best we can…maybe there’ll be things beyond that, but right now this is the summer then we have a bit of a break.”
The 69-year old also hinted that, despite the hiatus, new music could be forthcoming at some point in the future.
“I’m always writing new songs so hopefully we’ll do new songs one of these days soon,” he said.
