: I was attending college at univ of fla and the stones played to sellout to 60,000 people at tangerine bowl in orlando. Opening acts The Henry paul aBand and Van halen.
: The was the last really decadent tour. I remember outlaw motorcylce bikers circling the stadium as we waited outside the night before as festival seating was the way back then. I was 18 and a little green, but I remember a Indian guy in line in front of me who actually was shooting up, and later in the night he overdosed and was rushed out by ambulance.
: Great memories of a past era.
Great memories indeed! The 81 Tour was the first one where I could afford the high end seats. The Fabulous Thunderbirds and ZZ Top were the openers. Being here at the Astrodome in Houston, a lot of people came to see ZZ Top first and the Stones were secondary, boy did they have a rude awakening! Since then , the Boys just keep getting better. See you in Chicago 4/12 and Las Vegas.
