MUSIC NEWS- The Rolling Stones will be taking a break after their upcoming gigs in London's Hyde Park so the veteran rockers can enjoy a well-deserved break after months of touring. The band spent two months on the road in North America before wrapping up the 50 & Counting shows in Washington, DC on June 24 and then headed back to Britain for a landmark performance at Glastonbury festival.
They will wrap up their current concert run with two massive shows in London's Hyde Park on July 6 and 13. Head Stone Sir Mick Jagger has said they will be taking a period of time off after wrapping the final concert.
He recently told Pete Mitchell of Britain's Absolute Radio station, the official radio partner for Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, saying, "It'll be fun... (we are looking) forward to doing these two shows in Hyde Park, the last two shows of... this tour so we're gonna make them the best we can... Maybe there'll be things beyond that, but right now this is the summer then we have a bit of a break."
However, Jagger is adamant that we shouldn't give up hope of new music from the band, adding, "I'm always writing new songs so hopefully we'll do new songs one of these days soon."
