'When the Stars Came to Town is packed full of fantastic photographs, recollections and memorabilia which chronicles more than 40 shows that visited Derby’s largest cinema during this period.
“Switched-on entertainment entrepreneurs recognised this and introduced the ‘Pop Package Tours’ of one-night stands which visited cinemas and theatres across Britain. These shows presented as many as a dozen international pop stars, along with up-and-coming British artists, usually lower down on the bill.
"For example, one of the acts supporting the Everly Brothers, Little Richard and Bo Diddley at Derby’s Gaumont on October 11, 1963, was the Rolling Stones, who closed the first half.”
