The Rolling Stones back in London in July

After the first gig sold out in minutes, The Rolling Stones announced a second date in London for their world tour.

When the tickets for the performance in Hyde Park on July 6 were available it only took 3 minutes to be gone. That’s why the band decided to have a second concert on July 13.

The gigs are part of the 50 and Counting world tour after celebrating their 50th anniversary reunion last year. They returned to stage after five years of absence from touring and their celebration included show in the UK at the O2 Arena. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood are eager to perform in Hyde Park, supported in their second performance by Jake Bugg, Tom Odell and The 1975.

‘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.’ Jagger said.

The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band is anxiously awaited by its fans all over the world, including the British ones. The Rolling Stones will open a 10-day event called British Summer Time.

The gig has also another important significance because it celebrates 44 years since The Rolling Stones first played at Hyde Park in 1969.
