The captivating photographs also show Mick Jagger relaxing backstage with a cigarette and the group getting in a taxi outside Holborn Station in London.

It was recently revealed how Sir Mick demands a new mattress in every hotel he sleeps in now when on tour.

A source said: 'Mick always asks for a new mattress in his room, no matter how posh the hotel.

'But he insists the plastic wrapping stays on while someone sleeps for one night on the mattress to break it in.

'It's an unusual request but, hey, he's Mick Jagger. Does he need a new mattress every time? Why not?'
