The Rolling Stones 50 & Counting tour - the Uncut review

The Rolling Stones brought to a close their 50 & Counting tour on Saturday (June 13), with a second show at London's Hyde Park.

The band had kicked off their 50 & Counting tour on October 25 last year with a club show in the 600 capacity La Trabendo in Paris and another at the 1,800 capacity venue le Théâtre Mogador on October 29.

They played two shows at London's 02 Arena on November 25 and 29, followed by three shows in New York in December.

In between the London and New York dates, the band released a feature-length documentary, Crossfire Hurricane, on October 18 and a new greatest hits comp, GRRR! on November 13.

On April 28, they began a 19-date North American tour with a surprise show at Los Angeles' Echoplex.

During the American leg of the 50 & Counting tour, the band were joined on stage by guest artists including Tom Waits, Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Dave Grohl.

The Stones played Glastonbury on June 29 as well as two Hyde Park shows on July 6 and 13.

On July 22, the band released their Hyde Park Live album, recorded at the July 6 and 13 shows, on iTunes.
