50 Years of the Rolling Stones: Plus memories of Regina's biggest concert
On a summer night 50 years ago today, the Rolling Stones played their first concert at the Marquee Club in London.
Half a century is an impressive milestone for the biggest rock band in history, but for people in Regina it brings back memories of the biggest and best concert ever held in the city.
There could be no comparison - fans who had waited months never saw anything like it, especially in the Queen City.
People came from as far away as Australia, and Regina residents watched as it took a week to set up The Bigger Bang stage at Mosaic Stadium.
The set list included 'Jumping Jack Flash', 'Its Only Rock and Roll' and 'Honky Tonk Woman' to name a few.
Mick Jagger dazzled in a neon pink silk shirt, before changing into a silver jacket, the only warm thing he had he joked.
In between the songs there were jokes about Winnipeg and Calgary and of course how much better Regina is, especially when it came to Mick Jagger having fun with the name.
"The city that rhymes with fun," was a lasting quote.
As the fireworks shot from the stage, no one could really believe they had watched the Rolling Stones in Regina.
There were sightings across the city in the days in between the two concerts, with a confirmed visit by Mick Jagger and his son to the Mackenzie Art Gallery. He even introduced himself to a couple having their wedding photos taken.
Then Mick, Charlie, Keith and Ronnie did it all over again at the second concert, playing all the hits for the fans.
Like the dream it seemed to be, Mick, Charlie, Keith and Ronnie were gone, leaving concert moment fans will never forget.
