The Rolling Stones Make Glastonbury Debut
Rock legends finally play Pyramid stage with string of hits...
Opening with Mick Jagger belied his 69 years with a typically high-energy performance as the band rocked classic hits including Honky Tonk Women, Wild Horses and Gimme Shelter.
Before launching into Paint It Black, Jagger joked about the band's long absence from Worthy Farm, saying: "After all these years, they finally got around to asking us. Thank you Michael. It really is a pleasure."
New material including last year's release Doom And Gloom also made it onto the set list, as well as a new song written at the festival - Glastonbury Girl.
Joining the throngs of fans were the likes of Kate Moss and hubby Jamie Hince, Stella McCartney, Wayne and Coleen Rooney, and Lily Cole.
According to The Mirror, model Cara Delevingne even clambered up scaffolding at an Oxfam stall to get a better view of the show.
Mick Jagger also thanked fans, and suggested that the Stones would be back for more, saying: "I want to thank you for coming to see us. We've been doing this for 50 years or something, we have been doing this, and if this is the first time you've ever seen the band, do come again."
Though TV viewers got only an hour's-worth of the live show, festival-goers enjoyed more than two hours of the rock icons' classics, ending with encores of You Can't Always Get What You Want and Satisfaction.
