The Rolling Stones concert of 23 September 1966 turned out to be memorable in more ways than one.
Top of the bill at the Royal Albert Hall for the first time, the group introduced their British fans to the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, whose sensational opening performance included a young boy singer called Prince Albert. The first half of the show also featured The Yardbirds with Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page as lead guitarists.
As exciting as it must have been, all were somewhat upstaged by the mini-riot that took place at the start of the Rolling Stones’ set – an incident that would have been but a hazy memory were it not for the incredible footage captured by film-maker Peter Whitehead. The scenes were later edited into the promo for the Stones’ single Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadow?
