Yeah, you could look it up; it never happened. But I was there.
This is my third post for CA, and at first I thought Iíd write them all from memory, but those other two needed some fill-in work via telephone, email, Wikipedia et al, and I really liked that. Today, however, I sit down to write entirely from memory, and itís one of my favorites.
In September, 1997, the Rolling Stones began their Bridges to Babylon Tour in Toronto and ended in September, 1998 in Istanbul. The band played over a hundred shows before almost five million people. I know the word ďmillionĒ doesnít have the same impact it used to, but still, thatís a lot of people. And a lot of tickets, T-shirts, hats, programs, etc. They played in stadiums (stadia?) in front of up to a hundred thousand people. And the band played big to all of them. They always did. Please remember that when we get to the crux of the story.
