The Rolling Stones are not set to play a gig at the end of the London Olympics this summer. A rep for the band shot down the rumor that appeared in the London Evening Standard newspaper on Friday. The paper suggested that the Stones would jam at the Best of British concert in the city's Hyde Park, playing alongside Adele and Blur.
The one-off show is said to be part of a string of free events held in London to coincide with the 2012 games. The band's rep said there are no Olympic gigs on the docket...at all.
The rep said, "The Rolling Stones wish to point out that they are not performing at any concerts tied to the 2012 Olympic Games in Hyde Park or The Olympic Park."
Why the hell wouldn't the Stones play gigs around the Olympics?
