A trusted friend and confidante, Christopher Sykes, was brought in to create a visual and written record of their journey. In 1975 The Rolling Stones wanted to make a diary of their forthcoming tour so Christopher joined the 40-show tour at the Stones invitation and his role was to document the tour in its entirety. He travelled with the band in the specially commissioned Starship and took a wealth of photographs, most of which are unseen. Along with capturing photography, he kept a diary and held onto every piece of tour memorabilia he put his hands on, including backstage passes, tour newsletters and even hotel room keys. The photographs, diary entries and daily newsletters give you the opportunity to experience being backstage, pre-show tuning with Keith and Ronnie; travelling onboard the Starship; the idea of elephants as extra security; crew parties; the stage set-up; visiting Niagara Falls with Mick; Stus birthday cake fight; Mick borrowing Lisa Robinsons knickers for a show; Ronnie and Keith being charged with reckless driving and possession of a knife, and much much more.
