Mick Jagger has claimed that fans don't like The Rolling Stones playing new material live.

When asked by USA Today if he would like to make a follow-up to 2005's 'A Bigger Bang', he replied. "It would be nice to have a new album, but people don't like the new album when you play it onstage." He added: "They glumly look at you. 'OK, it will be over in a minute'. It's not a good excuse, but it's the truth and has to be said."

However, guitarist Keith Richards said in the same interview that the tour would be a good opportunity to write new material. "The time to record a band is once they've been on the road a while so they're hot," he said. "We'll think about that while we're doing this. The world needs more Stones records. So do I."

The Rolling Stones are set to play two dates at London's Hyde Park on July 6 and 13 as part of the Barclaycard presents British Summer Time festival. Support acts will include from Jake Bugg, Palma Violets, Tom Odell and The 1975.
