Produced by the band's manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, CHARLIE IS MY DARLING documents the Rolling Stones' two-city tour of Ireland in 1965.
The band is seen being shuttled to the gigs, preparing backstage, yawning, killing time, sleeping, and eventually playing onstage, to an accompaniment of their album hits, or orchestral rearrangements, or occasional non-synch live versions. The first show comes to an abrupt end when fans storm the
stage and have to be cleared by security; the band has long since run for cover. Afterward, a medical team is seen toting someone away on a stretcher. Before the second show even begins, an ambulance is parked outside the hall.
