Copacabana?! … and others

All the while the excitement for tomorrow’s gig in Vancouver grows, there are other news popping up which are quite interesting and keep us entertained while waiting for the show…

First, we check out the Copacabana-news, then switch to other finds… – “The Rolling Stones have been offered another concert at Copacabana Beach – meaning they could take back their concert attendance record Madonna surpassed. […] ” See also for this

Vancouver – “5 songs the Rolling Stones should play in Vancouver this Friday – The Rolling Stones tour set list averages 20 tunes per show and fans vote on one song per night. Here are five possibles for B.C. Place this week” – Those 5 suggested songs really meet my approval, I must say. Mick, do you read me?

California – “After 60 years of Rolling Stones concerts in Southern California, the fans tell all – Hear stories from the Rolling Stones’ biggest Southern California fans.” – 24 nice stories (if I counted well) from fellow fans through the years from early sixties up to 2015
