The Rolling Stones deny rumours Adele will join them at Hyde Park gigs

However, the chances of Adele saying yes are reportedly only '50/50'

The Rolling Stones deny rumours Adele will join them at Hyde Park gigs
The Rolling Stones have denied reports they have asked Adele to join them onstage when they play Hyde Park next month (July).

The legendary rockers have duetted with an impressive roll call of female singers on their '50 & Counting Tour' so far, including Lady Gaga, Florence Welch and Taylor Swift, who sang 'As Tears Go By' with the band in Chicago last night (June 3). However, it was reported that Adele was top of their wish list for their massive outdoor gigs in the historic London park on July 6 and July 13.

A "source" apparently told The Sun. "The Stones would love to get Adele on with them. It would be a massive coup, even for them, because she's been a bit reclusive since her son Angelo James was born. She is the name they want to announce as their special guest — and their invite should be special enough to get her out on stage."

However, the band's official spokesperson denied the rumours and told The Guardian that the answer was "no" when asked if there was any truth in the story. Adele's publicist, meanwhile, refused to be drawn, saying: "I have no comment on their story."

Adele last performed live in March, when she sang her Bond theme 'Skyfall' at the Oscars, and has apparently yet to make her mind up. "At the minute it's 50/50 that she'll do it, but Mick is quietly confident he can pull it off," the source added. "They want to make the Hyde Park shows a highlight of their tour, and her appearing would make it really special."

The Rolling Stones are currently on the North American leg of their '50 & Counting Tour' but will return to the UK later this month to headline Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage on Saturday June 29. Their pair of Hyde Park shows follow on July 6 and July 13.
