    Sir Mick Jagger has asked for requests for what The Rolling Stones should play in their set when they perform at Desert Trip.

    The 'Satisfaction' rockers are part of a legendary line-up of acts who are to perform at the one-off event being held at California's Empire Polo Club in Indio in October along with Bob Dylan, former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, Neil Young, The Who and Roger Waters.


    Mick, 73, and his bandmates - Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts - are about to start rehearsals for the show and he has taken to Twitter to ask fans to submit songs they would like to hear.

    His tweet read: "We are going to start our rehearsals for the Desert Trip shows soon. Have you got any ideas for the set lists? #StonesDesertTrip (sic)"

    The singer was quickly inundated with suggestions from his 1.76 million followers with some picking out some obscure tracks from the British group's illustrious past.

    Among the more unusual picks were 'One Hit (To the Body)' from 1986 LP 'Dirty Work', 'Moonlight Mile' from classic 1971 album 'Sticky Fingers' and 'Respectable' from 1978's 'Some Girls'.

    There were a lot of calls for the band to pay tribute to Mick's late friend David Bowie by playing the pair's 1985 cover of Motown classic 'Dancing In The Street' and for them to perform one of their best albums in full.

    Both Mick and Stones guitarist Keith Richards are extremely excited to be on the dream bill at Desert Trip - which has been organised by the creators of Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival - and can't wait to get out to California and perform and also watch the other acts.

    Keith, 72, previously said: "How many trips can you take to the desert, man? The line-up is just amazing. I can't believe we're all going to be stuck in this little town together. I mean, never have we ever all in the same place at the same time."

    Mick has stated: "I thought it was Coachella for old people! Maybe I'll get my RV and stay there for a bit longer. On the Friday night, it's going to be us and Bob Dylan, so there will be masses of musicians, actually masses of guests of all the musicians, and it's a fun time for everyone."
