The Stones’ 1965 Far East Tour was their first concert tour of Australasia. The tour was part of a package tour with Roy Orbison, The Newbeats, and Ray Columbus & the Invaders. They played 16 concerts in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne before flying to New Zealand for 10 shows. They came back to Australia to continue the tour with a further seven concerts in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, “In the first months of 1965 the Rolling Stones’ appeal to parents, hardly a great success to date, fell to its lowest point yet. The headlines kept coming, and they tended to be on the dark side. While touring Australiasia in the new year, the band managed to display a sort of greatest-hits collection of bad behaviour, which included fighting with photographers, trashing successive dressing rooms, dropping whiskey glasses from their hotel balcony in to the car park five floors below and, in Brian Jones’ case, smuggling in girls hidden inside the room-service trolley.” “A blatantly wild bunch’ who ought to be banned. They’re shockers. Ugly Looks, Ugly Speech, Ugly Manners”, the paper noted.

Jan. 22, 1965: Also, while in Sydney, Brian, Keith and Andrew Oldham get involved in a boating scuffle with some local young men. Keith also confined himself to sparring with a couple of teenage male fans who chased and rammed him when, in an improbable alignment, he put out one afternoon in to a seemingly quiet Sydney bay in a rowing boat stocked with a picnic hamper and a supply of books.


Jan. 22, 1967: The Stones appear for the first time on famous TV show ‘Sunday Night at the London Palladium’, later on causing controversy by refusing to participate in the tradition of taking part in the roundabout at the end of the show.
