Royal Mail to release 12 stamps in honour of The Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary | Music | Entertainment


There are individual and group shots stretching back to the Sixties across their 60-year career.

Images include shows from Tokyo in 1995, New York in 1972 and the Hyde Park gig from 1969.

Two shots picture the whole band together, while two feature vintage tour posters.

There is also a stamp to commemorate drummer Charlie Watts, who died in August.

The Stones are only the fourth band to have a dedicated Royal Mail stamp release, following The Beatles in 2007, Pink Floyd in 2016 and Queen last year.

The stamps go on general sale on January 20.
