Concerts: Scarboro’ gigs by the Stones

I am writing a people’s history of the Rolling Stones, an attempt to capture people’s memories of seeing them performing live in the years 1962 to 1966.

During that time they played at the Futurist Theatre in Scarborough on March 8, 1965, when they performed two shows.

Fans from around the country have shared their memories with me but to date I haven’t heard from anyone who saw the band play in Scarborough.

Six years ago a handbill advertising these shows sold at auction for over £1,300. I’d love to hear from any reader of the Scarborough News who might have been at those shows and whose memories are just as valuable - who they went with, how old they were, what they remember of the concerts.

I can be contacted at 32 Manor Avenue, Preston PR2 8DN or at
