The Rolling Stones will go on hiatus after their upcoming gigs in London's Hyde Park so the veteran rockers can enjoy a well-deserved break after months of touring.

The band spent two months on the road in North America before wrapping up the 50 & Counting shows in Washington, D.C. on 24 June (13) and heading back to Britain for a landmark performance at Glastonbury festival.

They will conclude their gigs with two massive shows in London's Hyde Park on 6 and 13 July (13), and frontman Sir Mick Jagger has revealed they will be taking a period of time off after wrapping the final concert.

Speaking to Pete Mitchell of Britain's Absolute Radio station, the official radio partner for Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, Jagger says, "It'll be fun... (we are looking) forward to doing these two shows in Hyde Park, the last two shows of... this tour so we're gonna make them the best we can... Maybe there'll be things beyond that, but right now this is the summer then we have a bit of a break."

However, Jagger is adamant fans should not give up hope of new music from the band, adding, "I'm always writing new songs so hopefully we'll do new songs one of these days soon."
