Rolling Stones Close Isle of Wight Festival

Published: 2007-06-11
The Rolling Stones headlined the U.K.'s Isle of Wight Festival this weekend; their first live performance in the nation since 1976 at the Knebworth Fair.

Sunday, June 10th saw the legendary British rock group close the 2-day music festival held at Seaclose Park with a 15-song set that included all their hits, such as "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" and "Miss You".

The Rolling Stones made up for the short delay before they got on stage by inviting several musical guests that had previously performed at the festival such as Paolo Nutini and Amy Winehouse.

The Isle of Wight Festival has been held annually since 2002 (although it originally began in 1968 and ran until 1970).

Among the celebrity concert-goers present for The Rolling Stones set were actress Sienna Miller and model Kate Moss.
