Rolling Stones mark 50th year with London concert
The Rolling Stones turned back the clock in style on Sunday with their first concert in five years, strutting and swaggering their way through hit after familiar hit to celebrate 50 years in business. The band are playing five gigs to celebrate their 50th anniversary, including two shows at London’s O2 and three more in New York. Before a packed crowd of 20,000 at London’s O2 Arena, they banished doubts that age may have slowed down one of the world’s greatest rock and roll bands.
