The Rolling Stones‘ Glastonbury headline set was watched by a peak audience of 2.5 million when a portion of it was aired live on BBC Two on Saturday night.
It had been reported negotiations between the Stones and the BBC over how much of their performance could be broadcast had been ongoing just hours before the band were due to take to the stage, but in the end ‘Miss You‘ was the song to mark the start of the BBC’s coverage, which continued on to the storming encore of ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want‘ and ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction‘.
