“This is the first time I’ve seen them. I’m such a fan, I always wanted to see them in a small venue, I hate the idea of stadium rock where you are just watching a big TV screen and ten little matchstick men so this is exciting to be here to see them up close and to hear them raw and alive.”

Greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world really. What 40 years on still here, still selling out stadiums, people still would today they are probably one of they’re the most influential rock bands of all time. Seeing these old grandads on stage but still with the greatest rock riffs – if you want pop idols, Jesus, these guys are it, aren’t they. They’re still here after all these years . Fantastic.”

16. SOUNDBITE (English) Chris Tarrant, DJ/TV Presenter:
“The fact that London has stopped tonight for a small local theatre to see this band again, they’ve done the fortieth tour, they are just extraordinary. I don’t know, he’ll know, they’ll know, keith will know when it’s time to stop and somebody will tell Keith they have stopped.They always do this thing ‘we are the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band’ and they are us, they are British and we are proud of them. Being part of their lives, I’ve seen them so many times, I’m very, very proud to be a Stones fan because they are superb.”

Rock veterans The Rolling Stones tonight played the smallest show of their world tour – just yards from where they made their debut more than 40 years

A pouting Mick Jagger and the group performed to a crowd of just 2,000, as they turned on the magic at The Astoria in London.

Last week the Stones had to cancel a number of shows after Jagger, 60, was ordered to rest his voice.

But as he bounded on stage, he was back to full strength as he told the audience: “We’re very pleased to be here I can tell you.”

The band are more used to wowing the crowds at stadiums and arenas, but have also added a handful of more intimate club shows to their stints in cities around the world on the current Licks world tour.

The show at The Astoria – tickets for which are believed to have been changing hands for four-figure sums – is just a stone’s throw away from where the quintet played their first show.

Their debut gig was at the original Marquee club in London’s Oxford Street in 1962, although at that stage the band had an apostrophe rather than a G in their name.

The classic line-up was still missing Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts.

After opening with crowd-pleaser Jumpin’ Jack Flash, they went into Live With Me, Hand of Faith and No Expectation, after Jagger announced: “We’re going to do a few different songs for you tonight.”
