The Rolling Stones marked their debut performance at the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival on Saturday before a crowd of roughly 135,000. The band opened the gig with "Jumpin' Jack Flash," which gave the primed crowd fits.
In addition, the group busted out a new track, "Glastonbury Girl," which they wrote expressly for the Pyramid Stage gig. Finally, the group closed with a rendition of "Sympathy for the Devil," before giving an encore performance of "Satisfaction."
Before the Stones were officially confirmed for a headlining gig at Glastonbury, there were months of speculation and unconfirmed rumors. In the lead up to the show, Keith Richards said the band was always "destined" to play the fest.
The sprightly guitarist released a video to YouTube, explaining the Stones' long flirtation with playing Glasto:
"It's almost as if you were destined to play Glastonbury. There were many years we were offered it and turned it down. I look upon it as the culmination of our British heritage."
