Sir Mick Jagger has promised The Rolling Stones will not to release any butterflies at Hyde Park this weekend, as they did when they played there in 1969
Sir Mick Jagger has promised The Rolling Stones will not to release any butterflies when they perform at London's Hyde Park.
The 'Brown Sugar' band staged a concert at the park in 1969 to commemorate the recent death of guitarist Brian Jones, which started with them releasing butterflies in front of the crowd.
However, Mick has ruled out any such stunt when the band plays Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park on Saturday July 6 July 13.
Mick told Absolute Radio's Pete Mitchell the stunt "didn't go down well with the Park men. So I don't think there's gonna be a lot of that."
He also joked they'd play the same songs, adding: "The same set list is going to be used, it saves me having to think."
The 'Gimme Shelter' band - which also includes Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood - also said he doesn't have to work out too much on tour, as he does it all beforehand, because being on stage is a workout for the band.
He added: "You do as much of that before the tour and then on the actual tour you don't really do that much, you just do a bit of topping up and a minimal amount so you've got the most energy left for the actual show."
