Rolling Stones wows Britons after 30 year
The Rolling Stones performed at a British music festival for the first time in more than 30 years as they played in front 60,000 fans to close out the Isle of Wight Festival on Sunday evening.
Their two-hour set, part of their European tour, also featured duets with both Amy Winehouse and Paolo Nutini and included their hit songs “Satisfaction”, “Sympathy for the Devil”, “Brown Sugar” and songs from their new album “A Bigger Bang”.
“It’s kind of weird you know, for us,” guitarist Keith Richards told Virgin Radio. “Coming back home is always a bit more special. We just carry Britain with us really, our little bubble of it.” The Rolling Stones had not performed in Britain since the Knebworth Fair in 1976. The Isle of Wight festival is in its sixth year since it was relaunched.
