Rolling Stones To Play Isle Of Wight

Rolling Stones To Play Isle Of Wight

The Rolling Stones are expected to confirm that they will be playing the headlining slot on the final night of this Summer's Isle Of Wight Festival.

Notoriously, the group tend to not play festivals, preferring to play their own massive stadium shows - the last time they made a festival appearance was at Knebworth in August 1976.

Other acts on the bill that day included Todd Rundgren, Lynyrd Skynyrd and 10cc.

The Stones are holding a press conference this Thursday (March 22) where it is expected that they will announce their Isle of Wight appearance on June 10.

The Isle Of Wight Festival sees Snow Patrol headline on Friday June 8 and Muse on Saturday June 9.

Other acts lined-up to play the Sunday include Keane, The Fratellis, James Morrison and Paolo Nutini.
