This is the start of the 50th anniversary celebrations for the early wave of British Invasion artists.
The Rolling Stones say they’ll mark the occasion by releasing a documentary and a photo album. But they’ve delayed their planned 50th anniversary tour until next year.
The film will be released in September. It’s directed by Brett Morgan, who promises to “create a sonic tapestry to transport viewers into the world of the Rolling Stones.” The documentary footage dates back to 1963 and includes some rarely-seen clips recovered from vaults and personal collections.
The photo book features 700 pictures, 300 in color.
Rolling Stone magazine confirms reports of the tour postponement, saying the delay is out of concern for guitarist Keith Richards’ health. Richards has not fully recovered from a head injury he suffered in 2006.
