Cool slide show from French newspaper Le Monde : [www.lemonde.fr]
Nice to see Argentinians fans everywhere!
Hey Jan, 1st row as usual? Hope you got a great time in Cuba!!!
Sorry, but people who have seen the Stones 150 times shouldn´t take the
place in the front row that was meant for a Cuban - who has never seen the Stones.
There were at least 100,000 Cubans there who haven't seen the Stones, and they all had an equal chance with Jan of getting into the front row. How many deserving Cubans should Jan allow to push in front of him before he is allowed to enjoy the show?
Right behind the 100.000 Cubans.
So what's a guesstimate on the crowd in attendance, numbers wise?
By watching the photos and videos, I guess 200,000.
News here and there says half a million
Yep, I read that too. But by watching this video I highly doubt about that. And this report written by someone who was in Havana says there was more than 100,000 people there.
According to an article published a couple of hours ago. "The Ciudad Deportiva sports complex in the Cuban capital, with a capacity of 450,000, was crammed. The sea of people flowed beyond into the streets, with crowds even standing thick on neighboring rooftops for a total of about half a million fans."
bye bye johnny
Our own Latvianinexile was there and will have camped out all day for sure. His photos are always excellent and he usually posts up s few on here
I loved watching the clip of JJF on YouTube, on the Stones channel. Sounded awesome!
