Rolling Stones posterYou'd be in plenty of company if you said you were a Rolling Stones fan, after tens of thousands saw the band perform in Auckland on Saturday night.

But you'd be in a smaller group if you've been commissioned to produce an official Rolling Stones concert poster.

In 1973 freelance artist Kate Burness did just that.

Her poster was to promote a Stones concert to be held in a Welsh castle. But the show was cancelled and most of the posters were destroyed.

Kate still has an original poster and wants to reproduce it, as she explains to Simon Mercep.
