The Rolling Stones Make First Festival Appearance in 30 Years at the Isle of Wight Festival
On 10 June 2007, the band performed their first gig at a festival in 30 years, at the Isle of Wight Festival, to a crowd of 65,000.
On 26 August 2007, they played their last concert of the A Bigger Bang Tour at the O2 Arena in London, England. On 26 September 2007, it was announced The Rolling Stones had made $437 million on the A Bigger Bang Tour to list them in the latest edition of Guinness World Records.
Playing their first festival in 31 years, Mick Jagger and co proved that underneath all the bluster and branding they remain a very useful rock 'n' roll band.
Though their early set selection might have raised eyebrows, The Rolling Stones ended the festival with the kind of songs that the word classic was devised for.
