Valladolid

The fans who have seen the Stones this summer have seen Mick Jagger blowing his nose and drinking water at times. Some times more, some times less. More means trouble. And in Porto it was more. Also in Porto we saw that he had to use a more powerful handheld microphone on the B-stage, while he does always use the headset for maximum flexibility. Something was wrong. And the missing restart of "Night Time". And the quick introductions. Mick had trouble with his voice, and needed to protect it so that hopefully he would not develop laryngits. As we have seen some times now over the years - Nuremberg 1998 with cancellations of Milan and Bilbao, Sacramento 1999 with San Jose cancellations, then 1997 Philadelphia and postponing the promo show, and Benidorm 2003, Amsterdam 2003 - there have been a few times and we know Mick's voice is sensitive to climate changes.

The fans queued up in Valladolid Spain for the big event of the year and may be for years. The Stones are in town. Fist time ever and probably only time ever. The stage was up and everybody was ready. All the hotels were fully booked. Bars and streets were packed with fans. But then some time between 3pm and the message was getting out to the fans. The show is cancelled. Merchandise sales were closed. The special buses driving fans from the city to the stadium were stopped. Fans were still coming into the venue from all over only to get the cancellation message.

The pictures are telling the story from Valladolid:

  • The stage being taken down in the afternoon
  • Fans from Argentina don't want to accept the fact
  • Bootleg t-shirts still on sale

The police cleared out all the bootleg t-shirt sales by 6pm. Even in the city center. But those shirts were nice. You can probably still get then in Valadolid at 10 euro if you look around...


El Ejido

A total of 53,000 fans missed out in Almeria when the Stones had to cancel the show on Wednesday Aug. 16 due to Mick having laryngitis being unable to sing. But they made the front pages of the Almeria press still, and the unofficial T-shirts are still on sale all over the area.
