Gig Review – Rolling Stones, Queen Elizabeth Stadium, 22 May 2018

When the Rolling Stones’ latest tour was announced, I didn’t hesitate and spent a fortune on golden circle tickets for the opening London show. Who knows whether they will tour again after this and while I’ve shot a few Stones shows I’ve never been to one as a paying customer.

So the plan was to go really early and see if we could get a good spot at the front. I was amazed that we actually landed ourselves a front row spot at the end of the (very long) runway, right next to where the photographers were shooting from. The little Sony RX100 only has a 24-70mm equivalent zoom but I was delighted with a few of my shots, especially this one as I really wanted to get Mick and Keith together in a single frame like this.
