As we get ready to see Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones here in Florida, let’s flash back to when the band played a free open-air concert in Hyde Park on this day (July 5) 50 years ago in 1969. It was their first public show in over 2 years to introduce Mick Taylor. Former member Brian Jones died two days earlier so the show was given in memory of him. They did 14 songs, many for the first time publically.
