The Rolling Stones Return to American Express presents BST Hyde Park to Celebrate their 60thAnniversary

Saturday 25th June 

Sunday 3rd July

Two huge London shows announced! 

The Rolling Stones return to London this summer for two nights at American Express presents BST Hyde Park on Saturday 25th June and Sunday 3rd July, 60 years on from their first-ever show at the legendary Marquee Club in London. Tickets go on sale at 10am Friday 18th March. 

The Rolling Stones mark their 60th anniversary this year and BST Hyde Park is the place to celebrate. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood return to the Great Oak Stage this summer, once again joined by Steve Jordan on the drums.

The Stones will treat fans to a set list packed full of classics such as ‘Satisfaction’, ‘Paint It Black’, ‘Tumbling Dice’, ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ and ‘Gimme Shelter’ but each night at Hyde Park they will include surprises from half a century’s worth of their classic hits. As always, when the Rolling Stones come to town, they will bring an incredible production and state of the art stage design. 

The Rolling Stones and Hyde Park have a rich history to say the least. Their 1969 show Stones in the Park is one of the most famous concerts of all time. The concert was a magical moment in history, though the true number was never known, between 250,000 and half a million people came to see the band return to where they truly belong, back on the live stage. 

They then returned just once in 2013 to open BST Hyde Park where they played two sold-out shows to 130,000 fans, resulting in an award-winning concert film ‘Sweet Summer Sun: Hyde Park Live’, directed by Paul Dugdale. This show kick-started a long line of once in a lifetime moments at the festival, including iconic performances from Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty, Barbra Streisand, Carole King, Bon Jovi, Kylie Minogue, The Who, Blur, Kendrick Lamar and so many more. There is no doubt that this year’s Stones show will go down in history as well.  

Today, the Rolling Stones also announce an additional UK date with a show at the iconic Anfield Stadium in Liverpool on Thursday 9th June 2022, part of the band’s new European tour ‘SIXTY’.

Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, says, “Whenever Hyde Park is mentioned, it’s impossible not to think of The Rolling Stones. Two nights on June 25th and July 3rd cap off an incredible line up for BST Hyde Park 2022 but nobody brings it like the Stones when they’re on home turf in London.”

London’s festival is back for THE celebration of the summer. After two years away, American Express® presents BST Hyde Park returns for the 8th edition for more unique shows and unforgettable music moments, and a huge and eagerly awaited celebration for the nation.

About Hyde Park:

Every year millions of visitors from London, the UK and across the globe enjoy the iconic Hyde Park, one of the capital’s eight Royal Parks. Spanning 350 acres of green space in central London, Hyde Park has hosted world-renowned music artists since the 1960s. The summer concerts are an essential part of income generation for The Royal Parks, providing necessary funds to maintain and develop the parks for future generations to enjoy. They also help support the diverse culture of London and introduce new audiences to the parks.

About The Royal Parks:

The Royal Parks is the charity that exists to make sure London’s eight historic royal parks will always be there to enrich the lives of local residents and visitors to London.

This recently created charity does this by:

Sensitively and sustainably protecting and conserving the heritage landscapes of the parks

●   Adding value to every visit by providing information and opportunities to find out more about the historic significance of the parks and the wildlife that lives in them today

●    Supporting and encouraging the development of biodiversity in the parks

●   Encouraging visitors to support their physical and mental health by using the parks for relaxation and exercise

It costs £40m a year to manage the parks. The charity raises around 75 per cent of this money itself, with the remaining 25 per cent coming from the Government.
