Thursday marks 50 years since Mick Jagger played his first gig with The Rolling Stones.
As the band celebrates its golden anniversary, STV looks back on their visit to the Granite City three decades ago.
In 1982 the band arrived in Aberdeen to play a gig at the then Capitol Theatre on Union Street.
The legendary rockers chose the venue as part of the first leg of a sell-out European tour.
With interest in the band so high the Stones – famous for songs including Satisfaction and Start Me Up – booked out three hotels to throw reporters and fans off their scent.
In true rock style however, the band never arrived at any of them, instead hiring a private train to take them to Glasgow – continuing their party along the way.
The video report featured is from former Grampian TV reporter Alan Cowie.
