I grew up in the 1960s a big fan of the Rolling Stones. My godmother’s daughter (is this what makes me my granddaughter?) I was the president of the United States of the Rolling Stones fan club in 1966. I had all his records and I was dying to see them playing live.

So imagine my joy when the spring of 1972 have become tickets available for a concert July 4 at the RFK Stadium. They sold quickly, but I managed to get a couple. Time passed very slowly for me between this day and the day of the concert.

We all piled up in the VW My friend and we left. Does this place make it useful? Can not wait with respect to the original. We hope this will help you in your research. Thank you for your understanding.

So there we were, with 5 hours to kill before Stevie Wonder was to entertain us as the opening act. The penetrating aroma of fadeux tobacco in the air bottles and inexpensive wine passes around. It was a wonderful atmosphere and everything went very slowly until we began to hear a loud disturbance coming from behind us. He was screaming and singing and he had just outside the front door. Apparently, some kids tried to rush team safety, entry and crash the stage!

Well, it was fun softly until someone yelled “shoot tear gas!” Which made us all laugh until the wind changed direction and began blowing gas in the stadium. We laughed at that moment and tried to hold our breath. It worked for a while until we had to really breathe, and then it was rude to say the least. Our eyes burned and everyone suffered.

Finally, the police got a clue and stopped with tear gas. The air cleared and the first act took the stage. Stevie Wonder was fine. Almost no one cared about him (which was a shame), but he did his thing for a half hour, and then left the stage both to the appreciation of most of the crowd. Such is the life of an act of openness.

Then another 45 minutes passed and finally the Stones took the stage. If you’ve ever seen the movie “Ladies and Gentlemen The Rolling Stones” then it was the same tour. Probably your best tour. They supported their new album “Exile on Main Street”. Many good songs that one and they made all of their success to date (the same hits everyone wants to hear today). Mick took note of the historic opportunity (he specialized in economics and history, after all at the London School of Economics) and congratulated us on our independence.

I had four Piedras concerts over the years and each one has produced an atmosphere that was so thick that it could be cut with a knife. I do not know what this group is about, but they are two amazing things at all times. They create an incredible atmosphere as I said, and they relate to the crowd as if it were an equal. Absolutely no sign of “well I’m a rock star thank you for your man bread and we played whatever we want or not play at all, it does not matter.” It’s strange but you really feel like you are your next partners and are just hanging out with you for this time of 02:00.

Well, they played for a little over 2 hours and 3 reps and then it was time to stumble back into the car and try to find our way home. Overall, the best experience a 20 year old boy could have had at that time was not by Robert Redford and Taburnacle Mormon Chorus. Oh, come on, use your imagination.
