Posted 24 Jul 2013 in Artist News, Featured, General News, Music, News, Performance

Hyde Park has always been a cultural center for the city of London. The massive city park, which has long been a meeting grounds for demonstrators, has a functioning speaker’s corner and occasionally, an active stage. This stage would have been particularly active on the sweltering night of July 5th, 1969, when international icons the Rolling Stones first took the stage to commemorate the death of bandmate Brian Jones, whose death had happened just two days prior. This first Hyde Park show was free, and saw not only an attendance of 250,000, but also the debut of Mick Taylor, who is often considered the Rolling Stone’s most talented guitarist.

The Stones recently played two sold out dates at Hyde Park on July 6th and 13th, which marks the 44th anniversary since they first played in all the way back in 1969. In order to commemorate this special date, as well as to highlight all the progress Jagger and the rest of the band have made since then, an exclusive live album featuring the best cuts from these two shows will be available for only four weeks through the band’s website and the iTunes store.


The live album features a number of classic Stone’s songs, including “Paint It Black”, “Sympathy for the Devil”, and the legendary “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”. The album will be available from July 22 – August 19, and will not be available for sale after this period. Costing only $9.99 for all 19 songs, this album is a very exciting offering both for longtime Stone’s fans and newcomers alike. Furthermore, fans of the several guests on this album, which include Mick Taylor, Gary Clark Jr., and the London Youth Choir, would do well to check out this exclusive release from one of the world’s most popular rock acts.
