RS778 – The Rolling Stones 1982 Autographed European Tour Programme (UK)
An original concert programme for the Rolling Stones 1982 European tour which has been signed by the group in black ballpoint pen on their respective images inside the programme. Mick Jagger has added ‘xx’ below his name, Keith Richards has added ‘Best Wishes’ above his name, Bill Wyman has added ‘Love’ above his name, Ronnie Wood has added ‘To Rod, all the best’ above his name. The front of the programme has also been signed by Billy Connolly. The programme is accompanied by a letter from the recipient which reads:
‘In the Summer of 1982, The Rolling Stones were on Tour in Europe.
On the 25th June that year, The Stones appeared at Wembley Stadium as part of their Tour.
I was fortunate enough to be assigned to the Stadium as a tour of duty, as supervisor to a serial responsible for safety of the performers and general conduct of the spectators in relation to alcohol consumption and disorder.
I visited their trailer backstage, prior to their appearance on stage, to check on their well bing and was greeted in a friendly manner.
I was in possession of the 1982 European Tour programme and being in the privileged position of meeting them, took the liberty of asking whether they would be kind enough to autograph the programme.
They were all most obliging and individually signed across their own photos in the programme.
Billy Connolly appeared at their trailer and began chatting with Mick Jagger.
I took the chance of asking Billy if he would also sign the programme which he very kindly did on the front cover.
That was on of the highlights of my career.’
The programme measures 30.5cm x 30.5cm (12 inches x 12 inches). There is some creasing to the front and back cover. The condition is very good.
