The Rolling Stones have hinted that their upcoming tour dates will feature guest appearances from some high profile names.

Last year the band's short run of shows in London and New York saw guest spots from Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen and Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. Keith Richards has said that this is something they are keen to repeat over the coming months.

"I have a feeling there's more openness about playing it the same way," Richards told AP. "I can't name names or make promises, but that area of the show is open."

The band have also said that their run of Stateside and British shows – including their now sold out gig in Hyde Park on July 6 – could be extended.

Frontman Mick Jagger explained: "Normally when you announce a tour like this, you announce part of it, you leave it to be, you see what happens, you might do a date here and another date there. You don't want to be completely hand fast, so you do leave some dates in between… So we'll see what happens."

Tickets to see The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park gig sold out in three minutes this morning (April 5), fueling speculation that the rock legends will play another date at the iconic central London venue.

They will play in London just a week after they headline the Saturday night of Glastonbury in June. As many as 65,000 tickets were snapped up after they went on sale at 9am [GMT] this morning priced at £95.

Meanwhile, Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts has claimed that he is not a fan of playing outdoor shows, saying:

"I don't want to do it [Glastonbury]. Everyone else does. I don't like playing outdoors, and I certainly don't like festivals. The worse thing playing outdoors is when the wind blows, if you're a drummer, because the cymbals move… it really is hard to play then."
