Rolling Stones turn back time with hit-filled comeback

The Rolling Stones turned back the clock in style on Sunday night with their first concert in five years.

London’s O2 Arena was the setting for the band who strutted and swaggered their way through hit after familiar hit to celebrate half a century in the music business.

Former stone Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor were also back in the fold with Charlie Watts on drums for the first time in 20 years.

The band has come in for criticism from fans about the high price of tickets to the shows – they ranged from around 120 euros to up to 1,200 euros for a VIP seat.

The gig was the first of two at the O2 Arena before the band crosses the Atlantic to play three dates in the United States.
