It was Bill Clinton 60th birthday – back in 2008 (the year Barack Obama was elected) and…this was his birthday present). This concert came 2 years after the largest,most well attended ever in the Stones history: the one in Rio’s Copacabana Beach, 2006, to an estimated crowd of (somewhere between 1.5 million to 2 million people).
Now – this is 2016 and they are STILL going! and, dare I say, going beautifully strong (albeit it without Lisa Fisher, sadly).
Somewhere in the middle of the Mexico City concert, Keith Richard took to the mic and said “It’s great to be back in Mexico……after all, I live here” (roaring laughter from the crowd)
