I'm having my first beer of the tour looking out across the road at the oval. People with Stones merch bags around everywhere so the stores out front are open!
Will head down soon to check it out.
The city is boiling - there is a big Stones buzz here. There are STONES shirts all over the city. Bootleg shirts are sold around the corners. It is something like +30 C i.e. 90 F very hot, the sun is up and the sky is blue, a fine day for a Stones show and a beer - Coopers Pale Ale that is.
Fans are stalking the Stones hotel waiting for a sight of one of the band members. I still have no nerves but they will be there soon, don't know when. At some point I just get nervous even if it is just another show for me. But here in Adelaide they only visit once every 20 years. It is special. You can feel it. The atmosphere. Stonesland.
Fans have been flying in from all over Australia and overseas. The buzz started last night. All hotels are fully booked. Now I will walk over and make some photos of the merchandise and the city and the fans.
The Stones are in town, and in some six hours they will be on stage!

Plus some real dirty Doom & Gloom riffs...
