Rolling Stones play 'extraordinary show'

The Rolling Stones celebrated 50 years on the road with a concert at the O2 arena in London.

Neil McCormick of the Daily Telegraph was at the concert. Speaking about the band's history, he told The Today Programme: "They were the first rock group in a modern sense to have a singer that didn't play an instrument. That was very unusual.

"But also, they were playing for the love of the music - and they formed what is the idea of a modern rock group."

He added that Sunday evening's concert was "an extraordinary show".

"The playing was as good as ever... they played a fantastic selection of material," he said.
