Trending Now

The Rolling Stones are in London tonight (April 2) to attend the UK premiere of their new Martin Scorsese directed live documentary film, Shine A Light.

The music flick documents the band’s 46-year history with footage from a gig they played at New York’s Beacon Theatre in 2006.

Speaking at the Berlin premiere of Shine A Light, Oscar-winning director Scorsese said he’s always been a huge fan of the Stones. He said: “Whenever I saw the show I’d get excited – I wanted to get a camera up there. We tried to get as close as possible to the energy of a live concert.

He added he has always loved their music commenting “Their music was tougher and had an edge; beautiful and honest and brutal at times and powerful. It’s always stayed with me.”

As well as the Stones and Scorsese attending on the red carpet, other artists expected to attend the Leicester Square premiere are Oasis, Kasabian, Klaxons, Maximo Park and the Mighty Boosh‘s Noel Fielding.
