Known as "The Worlds Greatest Rock & Roll Band", the Rolling Stones concert began at 7:00 with opening acts the Dorothy Norwood singers and Stevie Wonder. The Stones took the stage soon afterwards, beginning the show with their latest hit "Brown Sugar". They continued to play the hits until 10:00, with Street Fighting Man, being the last song, and no encore. This concert was unlike any concert that I had attended at the time, with an exceptional stage and light show. They did however, decide not to play the early 60's hits
on this tour, including their biggest hit "Satisfaction" (Pat Adams)
