Fans of The Rolling Stones have been given the opportunity to catch a glimpse into the childhoods of Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards with a new tour of their English hometown. The bandmates befriended one another while attending Wentworth Primary School in Dartford, Kent until Jagger's family moved away, only for the youngsters to become reacquainted in their teens when they realised they shared a passion for music. The Satisfaction Tour gives fans a chance to see the pair's childhood haunts, including the bedroom Richards slept in above a florist, their schools, the hospitals they were born in and Dartford Railway Station, where a chance encounter between the pair in 1960 reignited its friendship and led to the old pals forming the Blue Boys, which went on to become the Rolling Stones.
