Postage stamps celebrate 60 years of the Rolling Stones

A set of 12 tickets will be launched later this month to celebrate The Rolling Stones, as the band marks its 60th anniversary.

The Royal Mail stated that eight tickets contained images of the band’s most famous performances, including a 1969 concert in Hyde Park in London, a 1995 concert in Rotterdam, and a gig at the 1976 Knebworth Festival.

The Hyde Park event was a free outdoor festival held two days after the death of the band’s founding member Brian Jones.

Jones was replaced by guitarist Mick Taylor, who was later replaced by Ronnie Wood.
