: 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.
: I saw 'em in Hartford and Syracuse on that tour. Both indoor shows! :-) The show in Hartford was GREAT (along with the partying), however, although the show in Syracuse was equally as good, I found out that Syracuse has got to be America's most boring city. Christ, the only bar open after the show was at the hotel where I was staying! Luckily, though, the WHOLE hotel turned into a huge after-show party. Rolled back into hartford the next day (actually West Hartford) and caught The Blushing Brides' show. Great Stones' tribute band! :-)...CR
