Rolling Stones to return to Hyde Park


The Rolling Stones are returning to London's Hyde Park for their first gig there since a free concert in 1969.

Frontman Mick Jagger told the BBC's Colin Paterson about his memories of the landmark concert - which was just two days after death of guitarist Brian Jones in July 1969.

At the gig, Mick Jagger wore a white dress on stage and read a Percy Bysshe Shelley poem dedicated to Jones. Thousands of butterflies were then released into the air.

"I will try and keep the poetry to a minimum" he said. But he revealed that he still owns the dress, adding: "I can still just about get into the zippers."
