The Rolling Stones to play Knebworth?

The Rolling Stones could reportedly perform at Knebworth this summer.

The 'Satisfaction' hitmakers may return to the park in the middle of Hertfordshire, where the band - which includes Sir Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts - performed in 1976 in front of a crowd of more than 120,000 fans.

A band source told The Sun newspaper: "Their last gig of the summer is July 15 in Quebec, so it gives them around a month or so before Knebworth to fine-tune everything.

"The band want to make sure they don't clash with the bigger UK festivals so the most likely date they are throwing out there is August 15 - the Saturday before the V Festival.

"Nothing is a done deal yet. But if they pull it off it'll be a huge gig."

The 1976 concert is widely recognised as one of the band's most iconic gigs, and is famous for frontman Sir Mick apparently leaving a pair of his red undergarments in a room in the stately home surrounding the park.

A representative for the band is yet to confirm the concert rumour.
