The Rolling Stones were prevented from finishing their 50th anniversary tour London concert with the signature song “(I can’t get No) Satisfaction” because of a strict curfew.

The British rock band was scheduled to complete their acclaimed two-and-a-half-hour gig at the capital’s O2 Arena last night with the 1965 smash hit.

But it is understood it was dropped as one of three encore songs because of strict local curfews banning live music from finishing past 11pm.

The ageing rockers, in their 60s and 70s, took to the stage for the first time since 2007 as they celebrated 50 years in the industry by performing in front of 20,000 screaming fans.

    The Rolling Stones: Positive proof that the Walking Dead really do exist.

    The Led Zep reunion show back in 2007 remains the Concert of the Millenium because…..

    1. No backup singers.
    2. No horn section.
    3. No cute stage props.
    4. No goofy “Keith Richards Signature Model” hair bands.
    5. No checked suit on the lead singer making him look like a refugee from a Frank Sinatra tribute act.
    6. A “Kashmir” for the ages.
    7. Just four guys on stage kicking ass and taking names.

    Watch the DVD and tell me it ain’t true.
