Jagger hints Stones to play same set as 1969 gig

Mick Jagger has hinted the Rolling Stones might play the same set list at Saturday's Hyde Park gig that they played first time round in 1969 - but there will be no repeat of the stunt that saw him release hundreds of butterflies into the crowd.

This weekend's performance comes almost 44 years to the day since they played the famous free concert in the central London park.

The singer told Absolute Radio's Pete Mitchell: "Obviously, the same set list is going to be used, it saves me having to think."

Jagger admitted that this time the songs might be played "in a slightly different order", saying: "I'll put them in the butterfly boxes and then throw them in there cut out and then shake them and then see what comes out and in what order."

He said there would be no butterflies released because they "didn't go down very well last time".
