Music legend Mick Jagger says boyband 'One Direction' gigs remind him of the early Rolling Stones shows.
The 69-year-old singer, who watched one of the boy band's performances, says the 'Little Things' hitmakers appear to be experiencing a similar distinctly uncomfortable feeling to the one the veteran rockers used to get during concerts when they first started out in the 60s, reported Rolling Stones magazine.
"I watched a concert of One Direction on the TV the other night... It reminded me very much of our early concerts, when we were pushed around among the audience and we would kind of float. They were, like, floating above the audience, and they looked really, distinctly uncomfortable.
"I remember feeling that same uncomfortable feeling of being pushed around in this very weird place about 50 years ago. It was a very funny moment, because it was very similar to the things we've been through," he said.
One Direction's success in the US, which has seen them earn a Guinness World Record for being the first British band to top the US Billboard chart with their debut album, 'Up All Night', has often been compared to the British invasion of the
60s when The Rolling Stones and The Beatles became big stars Stateside.
