My first concert ever. My older brother, Joe, is the greatest brother on earth for taking me to this show with his college friends, even though i was only 14.
I have always had (and always will have) a hard on for the Stones because of this experience.
Seriously...fuck the Beatles.
If you look closely, you'll see that the seats were obstructed view. Basically, all i could see was Charlie Watts' right hand, and I didn't see Bill Wyman until the curtain call.
It didn't matter - the show blew my mind....especially "2,000 Light Years From Home" and "Gimmie Shelter," but most especially "Sympathy for the Devil." Performed on a five-story high rise platform that was level with the top tier of RFK Stadium, Mick Jagger gave one of the single most magical performances I have ever, ever seen.
Living Colour opened. They looked a little lost on that great big stage.
Eek. I just remembered that I totally bought their lame concert tee at that show.
