ROLLING STONES CONCERT – U2 MIXUP OR THE GROUNDS NOT READY?

ROLLING STONES CONCERT – U2 MIXUP OR THE GROUNDS NOT READY?

DSCF0123 compSat 23rd March.  It was going to be a long wait for these Sydney girls to see their Rolling stones heroes.  But they and a tourism operator have been hurriedly exited from the new Adelaide Oval by a burley security officer.  The three, one a tour leader from a local wine and sightseeing tourism business, had heard that the cancellation of the Rolling Stones concert was actually because of a mix up of dates with U2 by the promoters. Another rumour was that the venue was still unfinished and unable to cope with the 50,000 honky tonk music fans.

After visiting some of the start me up bars prevalent in the festival city, they wanted to see the venue, and whilst looking over the massive structures from the nearby Montefiore Hill, they were intrigued by loud U2 music coming from the western stands. A long walk to the southern entrance would take them past a little red rooster, some massive Morton Bay figs, but not a Joshua tree. Of course there would be no Mick, but a glimpse of Bono would have made their day, so the inquisitive three entered through a small open gate to the grounds on what supposed to be the eve of the largest gig for the Rolling Stones in the southern hemisphere. It soon became apparent to them that they were not supposed to see what was going on inside….nothing! Not even a tradesman painting it black, when there seemed to be so much still to be done. An angry security officer patrolling the vacant stands, rushed to usher them out of the grounds, obviously embarrassed that the gate had been left open.

“Its only rock and roll, but we like it. We have travelled from Sydney to this event, and could get no satisfaction or emotional rescue” the girls said. “But we will be back in October if it is rescheduled for then. We are really looking forward to that, and time is on our side” they added. “And we will be doing another fantastic tour of the Barossa with Be consumed. tours. Enjoying the top South Australian wine regions with a real winemaker is a fantastic experience”
