The Rolling Stones headlined American Express presents BST Hyde Park on Saturday, June 25, with a setlist comprising 19 of their biggest and best-loved songs.

The Rolling Stones last performed at BST Hyde Park in 2013. This year, they stopped in what may be London’s most well-known park, as part of their “Sixty” tour – the Stones’ first tour since the passing of renowned drummer Charlie Watts in August 2021.

The tour celebrates 60 years of the band’s, a time-span across which they amassed an extensive catalogue of tracks, including beloved numbers such as “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “She’s Like A Rainbow,” and “Paint It Black.”

Mick Jagger made a special dedication to the late Charlie Watts before launching into “Tumbling Dice.” The frontman told a crowd of 65,000, “In 1962, we met a drummer from Wembley called Charlie Watts… and sadly this is our first show in London without him. So, we would like to dedicate this show to Charlie!”

The two-hour-fifteen-minute performance concluded with “Sympathy For The Devil,” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Towards the end of the show, Jagger thanked the audience, saying, “It was 60 years this week that we played our first show around the corner at the Marquee Club. We want to thank you for coming back to see us.”

The Rolling Stones will perform during BST Hyde Park one more time, next Sunday, July 3, before continuing their “Sixty” European tour at King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels, Belgium (July 11).
