Legendary rockers THE Rolling Stones were forced from stage during a concert in Virginia last night (6OCT05) after a bomb scare.

An anonymous call was made to the University of Virginia's Scott Stadium in Charlottesville at 9pm last night that police say was "specific to the stage area".

After Jagger was informed he told the 50,000 crowd the band would take a 10 minute break. They returned 45 minutes later after being given the all clear by cops who searched the stage with sniffer dogs.
