“The Stones in the Park” is one the most legendary concerts in rock’n’roll history. Now, you can see it for yourself. “The Stones in the Park” was a free outdoor concert held in Hyde Park on the 5th of July, 1969, to introduce the Rolling Stones’s new guitarist Mick Taylor. It was the first Stones concert in two years.
Adding significance to the event, just two days before the concert, original guitarist Brian Jones died tragically. Thus, “The Stones in the Park” concert was significant both as a tribute, and as the start of a new beginning.
Some 250,000 fans flocked to Hyde Park on a pilgrimage to see the group described as “the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world”. The band played all their hits, including ‘Satisfaction’, ‘Honky Tonk Women’, ‘Jumping Jack Flash’ and ‘Sympathy for the Devil’, and released thousands of butterflies into the air in a tribute to their former guitarist.
Now you have the chance to see this fantastic concert for yourself – and maybe even sing a long with your favourite hits.
