The Rolling Stones rounded off their 50th anniversary celebrations by headlining the Barclaycard presents British Summertime Festival.

The legendary band were performing at London's Hyde Park last night (13.07.13) for the second time in two weeks in front of 65,000 fans as the heat soared.

Sir Mick Jagger wasn't put off by the warm weather, as energetic as ever wearing the same white jacket he wore for the group's iconic performance at the same venue in 1969.

Addressing the crowd - and the heat - he said: ''It's fantastic to see you all here on the hottest day of the year so far. Are you surviving? Good.''

The rockers - completed by Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts - were also joined by former guitarist Mick Taylor, who made his debut at the show 44 years ago.

Kicking the show off with 'Start Me Up', the legendary musicians showed no signs of aging as they powered through a high-energy set highlighted by the likes of 'Jumpin' Jack Flash', 'Brown Sugar' and 'It's Only Rock 'n' Roll'.

The fantastic performance was brought to an end with a strong encore of 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' and 'Satisfaction'.

The Barclaycard presents British Summertime Festival will be brought to a close today by Lionel Ritchie and Jennifer Lopez.
