The Rolling Stones debuted at the Glastonbury Festivalin the U.K. on Saturday, kicking off their performance with “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.” According to Billboard, they played a new song called “Glastonbury Girl,” which was written specifically for the festival.
Tickets to the event which is now in its 43rd year sold out in minutes and that was before any of the headline acts had been confirmed. The festival, which started in 1970 when several hundred hippies paid 1 GBP to watch Marc Bolan, now attracts more than 175,000 people over five days.
As for their hits, the Stones also performed "Paint It, Black," "Gimme Shelter" and "It’s Only Rock n’ Roll (But I Like It)," among other songs.
The BBC screened a portion of the show Saturday night, with the audience from their VOD service set to be in “the tens of millions,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In an interview with BBC Radio before the show, Jagger said he has no plans to fade away anytime soon. He said he had "no idea" when the band would stop performing, saying he’ll likely keep going for as long as he wants.
The next stop for the Stones will be Hyde Park on July 6 and 13, wrapping up the most recent leg of their 50 & Counting tour.
