The Rolling Stones have announced a second gig at London's Hyde Park.
The 'Brown Sugar' hitmakers - whose Barclaycard presents British Summer Time show on July 6 sold out in just five minutes last Friday (05.04.13) - will return to the festival on 13 July, following the popularity of their first date.
Also performing on the newly announced show are acts including The Horrors, Jake Bugg, Tom Odell and The 1975.
The gigs - which are part of the bands '50 and Counting' shows to commemorate their 50th anniversary last year - come 44 years after the band first played the London park, two days after the death of founding member Brian Jones.
Following the announcement of this year's first gig, frontman Sir Mick Jagger said: "We had such a great time playing the five concerts last year, we want to keep it going. Hyde Park holds such great memories for us and we can't think of anywhere better to perform for our UK fans this summer."

Barclaycard Unwind customers will be able to purchase tickets from www.barclaycardunwind.com from 9am tomorrow (10.04.13).
