Watch A Little Band Called The Rolling Stones Make Their Glastonbury Debut

An upcoming band comprised of four sexygenarians called The Rolling Stones made their debut performance at Glastonbury overnight, playing a two-and-a-half hour set for a reported crowd of 170,000 punters who can now lay claim to saying they saw the Stones before they blew up after the famous Worthy Farm show of 2013. 

“It’s great to be here doing this festival. After all these years they have finally gotten around to asking us,” mouthed limber frontman Mick Jagger, who celebrates his 70th birthday next month and earlier this year supported Keith Urban in concert – a great honour.

“I want to thank you [the band’s small but loyal fan base] for coming to our shows for 50 years,” said Jagger, who was then moved to introduce to Glastonbury for the first time his band mates, drummer Charlie Watts and guitarists Ronnie Wood and this guy called Keith Richards.

“If this is the first time you have ever seen the band, do come again,” suggested Jagger, feeling so blessed that people had come to hear his music!

Predicting big things for these guys.
