Did you know that this year marks 50 years since one of the biggest bands in the world first played live in Chester?
The Rolling Stones visited our city on three separate occasions during the Sixties - the first time being on April 18 1964 at the Royalty Theatre on City Road.
Five months later, on September 14, the band appeared at the ABC cinema as part of their UK autumn tour, and Chronicle reader Brian Shaw was there to see it.
He sent us this picture of the band and also shared some of his memories of that special night.
“The Stones were appearing in 32 towns and cities as part of that tour,” he said.
“I had bought my ticket at the ABC ticket office on Love Street and it was for the second performance - costing me 12s 6d.
“At that time, photography at the ABC was forbidden but I took my camera along anyway, and took about 125 black and white shots but most of them were spoiled by fans jumping up and down in front of me. I didn’t use a flash because the stage lighting was sufficient.
“The show included several supporting acts and the Stones were last on stage. Their performance lasted about half an hour and they sung about eight numbers, although because of all the noise the fans were making, and the primitive sound system on stage, you couldn’t hear anything and couldn’t even tell which songs they were doing - they may as well have sung ‘Ba Ba Black Sheep’ and nobody would have noticed - but the fans were happy having seen their idols.”
The Rolling Stones returned to the ABC for another performance on October 1 1965.
