The Rolling Stones’ 1969 World Tour kicked off days after the death of Brian Jones and ended with the death of Meredith Hunter at Altamont, captured in the film Gimme Shelter. Who would have guessed that this tour would mark the death of the 60s?
Here, Mick and Keef take a break for some time in the sun. The image forms part a new exhibition dedicated to the tour photography of Ethan Russell, ‘Let It Bleed: The Rolling Stones’ 1969 US Tour’ and will be on display at London’s Proud Galleries, May 23 – July 20.
