Rock 'n' roll legends The Rolling Stones hit London stage

THE Rolling Stones hit the stage at London's O2 arena today with a roar of approval from a sea of silver-haired fans as they tore into old favourite I Wanna Be Your Man.

A swaggering Mick Jagger, dressed in sparkling silver and black, rolled back the years with the 1960s hit as he bounced onto a stage shaped in the red lips logo that is the calling-card for one of rock'n'roll's most enduring bands.

Lead singer Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood and drummer Charlie Watts are all in their 60s and early 70s, but have promised a two-hour show that will stun the crowd, and include former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor as well as R&B singer Mary J. Blige and guitar great Jeff Beck.
