First Concert In Japan

Playing their first ever Japanese tour dates, the Stones sold out 10 dates at the Tokyo Dome, a venue more accustomed to hosting baseball matches. Mark Fisher, London architect and designer of the stage set, came over to re-jig the cumbersome Steel Wheels setup, which would result in the Urban Jungle design.


Urban Jungle Tour Of Europe

Stripping down from the Steel Wheels stage set, the Urban Jungle design was easier to move around on the 45 European dates it was used. Though the actual shows would remain similar set-list wise, there was more reliance on jokey stage props reminiscent of the 1975 Tour Of The Americas. During ‘Street Fighting Man’, rehearsed as a big production number, four large, toothy blow-up dogs – complete with erections – would be unleashed, with one of them eating Jagger at the end of the song.


Jerry Hall

After years of prodding and goading, Mick finally married Jerry Hall in the South Pacific. The Texan supermodel had actually been Bryan Ferry’s girlfriend when she met Mick in 1977, but it didn’t take long for Mick to take advantage of Ferry’s touring absences and work his way into Hall’s heart. The marriage would ultimately fail quite publicly nine years later, leading Hall to say, ‘Mick’s a wonderful man, and a terrible husband.’
