Statues of Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to be unveiled in Dartford High Street
Bronze statues of two members from legendary rock band the Rolling Stones are to set be installed in a Kent town.
The statues - which will be erected in Dartford High Street - will pay tribute to the legendary musicians by capturing them together in mid-performance.
Council leader Jeremy Kite commented: “Many Dartfordians have gone on to change our world, but in terms of culture and music you don’t get much more influential than the Rolling Stones.
"A nearby housing scheme by Bellway London gave us the opportunity to realise a long-held desire to mark these two local icons and the developer agreed to fund the statues as part of its obligations to fund art in the town.
The statues will be created by sculptor Amy Goodman and eventually unveiled at One Bell Corner this year.
"I intend to create two dynamic figures which capture the incredible energy and chemistry the two of them have when performing together on stage, that the public can walk through and around, and interact with."
