A special set of stamps is being issued to celebrate The Rolling Stones, Royal Mail has announced.
The 12 stamps will be a tribute to the band, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, having been formed in London in 1962.
The free outdoor festival, marketed as The Stones In The Park, saw the live debut of his replacement guitarist, Mick Taylor, who was later replaced by Ronnie Wood.
Other performances to feature on the eight stamps include those from Rotterdam, Netherlands, in August 1995 and their gig at the Knebworth Festival in August 1976.
The Rolling Stones – Sir Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards – worked closely with Royal Mail on the issue of the stamps, which also feature drummer Charlie Watts, who died in August last year.
They are only the fourth music group to feature in a dedicated stamp issue, Royal Mail said, following The Beatles in 2007, Pink Floyd in 2016 and Queen in 2020.
“They have created some of modern music’s most iconic and inspirational albums, with ground-breaking live performances to match.”
The stamps go on sale from January 20.
