Do you remember the day the Rolling Stones and Ronettes played in Mansfield?

AN image capturing the moment some of the 60s biggest music stars played in Mansfield is to feature in a tour through the United States.

Top of the bill at the Granada Cinema on 14th January 1964 were a fresh-faced Rolling Stones, supported by New York girl band The Ronettes and Sheffield-born singer Dave Berry.

The picture taken on the day shows Dave and the three members of the Ronettes, lead singer Veronica Bennett (later known as Ronnie Spector), Estelle Bennett and Nedra Talley, and was published in Dave’s autobiography.

When Ronnie was reunited with Dave at the recent Meltdown Festival in London she spotted the photo and asked permission to use it in a new show about her life story, ‘Beyond the Beehive’, which will tour America this year.

Dave says the photo should bring back happy memories to some and remind others that the town once played host to the Rolling Stones.
