Rolling Stones Glastonbury Show Headlines TV Concert Specials
The Rolling Stones‘ June 29 appearance at the Glastonbury Festival this summer will headline a weeklong slate of special concert programs on the Palladia cable network. The Glastonbury special will also include performances by other artists, like Elvis Costello.
The specials start on Aug. 26 with highlights from the Hangout Festival, which included a set by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. For the next week, leading up to Labor Day, the network will feature a lineup of some of 2013’s biggest and most popular festivals.
Other concert specials — all part of Palladia’s Outdoor Week — include Hard Rock Calling (featuring Bruce Springsteen) on Aug. 27, Download Festival (featuring Motorhead) on Aug. 29 and Isle of Wight (featuring Bon Jovi) on Aug. 31.
The Glastonbury special, which airs at 7PM on Sept. 1, concludes the high-definition music channel’s eight-day festival programming.
The Stones’ Glastonbury appearance, their first, was called one of the fest’s highlights, with the band stripping down and delivering a set of some of their best songs, including ‘Sympathy for the Devil,’ ‘Happy’ and ‘Can’t You Hear Me Knocking,’ which featured former guitarist Mick Taylor.
