The Rolling Stones make their Glastonbury debut

Despite their career spanning half a century and being one of the UK’s biggest ever groups, The Rolling Stones have never played their country’s most famous music festival, until last night.

On Saturday, Mick Jagger and his bandmates took to the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury for a blistering 20 song set spanning their incredible career. "After all these years they finally got round to asking us!" said Jagger to the throngs.

 "If it's the first time you've ever seen the band please come again!" he added.

The band played a two hour set focusing on their biggest hits such as ‘Sympathy for the Devil’, ‘Start Me Up’ and ‘Satisfaction’. The stage show included pyrotechnics and a giant mechanical bird.

Former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor joined the group for a few tunes and a choir also took to the stage for ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’.
